Lara: I Pick Guys Like Canelo Apart, Put Them in The Dirt

By Mike Coppinger

On Saturday night, Erislandy Lara gets the fight he's wanted for years: Canelo Alvarez.

The Cuban southpaw is supremely confident that he'll come out on top because he believes Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs) is tailor-made for him.

"It’s a good style matchup because I know Canelo’s going to try to press forward and press for action, and that’s a style I like," Lara said on a recent conference call. "I like guys that come and fight, and I pick them apart, like I’ve done to several guys coming up.  These are the fights I like.  I like guys who come to fight and I like to put them in the dirt, and that’s what I plan on doing."

Bold words from Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs), but in 2013 he topped Mexican brawler Alfedo Angulo, making him look silly at times. However, Lara was dropped twice in the fight. If Lara can withstand Canelo's power, he might be able to come through on his prognostication.

Lara has this fight won hands down. Style makes fights and Canelo's deliberate and cautious pace plays right into Erislandy's hands. Fighters who tend to fight off the front foot in order to pressure/swarm Lara at close quarters or has tremendous stamina, cardio and work rate have historically en...
