Lara: I Would Go To 160-Pounds To Fight Sergio Martinez

Erislandy Lara visited with us on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show this past Tuesday. Lara faces Ronald Hearns tonight on Showtime's latest edition of their ShoBox series.

The fight was originally scheduled to take place in February but was postponed when Andre Berto tore a biceps muscle which pushed back his rematch against Victor Ortiz till June. Lara doesn't expect the layoff to cause any problems.

"We were training well and then it got cancelled. We took two weeks off and then got back right into it. In reality we had two great training camps," Lara told The Boxing Lab.

The Cuban said that he isn't looking ahead and that all of his focus is on Hearns. He also said that he is confident that he will finally land a big fight soon.

"We have Hearns Friday night and then we will get a big fight after. Right now we just have to stay focused and the big fight will come," said a confident Lara.

Promoter Lou Dibella also paid a recent visit to The Boxing Lab and said that if Lara gets past Hearns that he would consider him as a possible opponent for middleweight king Sergio Martinez. Lara has appeared on Boxingscene numerous times campaigning for a fight against Martinez so I asked him for his reaction to DiBella's comments.

"First there is no doubt that we will beat Hearns," Lara stated. The natural junior middleweight seemed skeptical that DiBella would actually make the fight. "We hope that it's (our next fight) Martinez or another big name. We are happy they mentioned us. We will see if it becomes reality. Right now its just talk. They say no one wants to fight him at 154 or 160. I will go to 160 to fight him," Lara revealed.

[QUOTE=mathed]Canelo is 5'-9", weighs in at 154 and so does Lara. The difference is that Alvarez rehydrates up to 168 or more, I'm not sure what Lara rehydrates to but Canelo has a much wider, solid frame with a build like a bigger version of Marquez. We'll see what Canelo is made of when he ...

[QUOTE=Money_May]Ok simple, lara needs to develp a right hand hes too over reliant on the left. Martinez is a tricky opponent to catch so he wont be landing that left the way he landed on P-Will. His right hand is the reason he wont win i can see martinez catching lara with the left one more then...

comment by mathed, on 04-22-2012
[QUOTE=garfios]And I think the come forward style of canelo's is made for Lara straight left, he will never c the 12 round against Lara, too much of everything, speed, power, great technician, alots of experience and he is being hit flush a couple of times and hasn't blink, the day that Canelo fi...

[QUOTE=garfios]So let me get this, he struggled with Molina, we all know, which is in the past, but now you agreed that he will beat Molina and fighting Martinez will be bad for him, then I don't see why bringing Molina's fight (I'm almost sure you agreed Lara beats Molina now) has any input on a...

[QUOTE=garfios], Williams has over 15 lbs fight night I didn't c PW pushing Lara around, so please feel free to elaborate on that "Lara is too small"[/QUOTE] Yeah, plus Lara looked like he bulked up a bit for Hearns. Not to mention Hearn himself is a real middleweight.
