By Osman Rodriguez

Junior middleweight Erislandy Lara (16-1-1, 11KOs) wants the opportunity to fight WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Alvarez was scheduled to fight Victor Ortiz, who suffered an upset loss and a broken jaw to Josesito Lopez on Saturday night. Ortiz joins a list, which includes Paul Williams and James Kirkland, of fighters who were scheduled to fight Canelo and due to unforseen circumstances they were withdrawn from the slot.

Lara confirmed he is not one of the boxers being considered to replace Ortiz. Some of the boxers in the running to face Canelo include former champion Carlos Quintana and undefeated WBA "regular" 154-pound champion Austin Trout.

"Chavez Jr. is man enough to fight Martinez, now show the world you're a man. They say Mexicans are macho so let's lock and load, unless Chavez has more cojones than you," Lara said. "We both have the same promoter there is no excuse now. Golden Boy is about  putting on the best possible fights and that's Me vs. Canelo - not these blown up
recycled welterweights."

Lara returns on June 30th to fight Freddy Hernandez (30-2, 20KOs) at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

[QUOTE=Luffy]ricans..........[/QUOTE] They're PR, but that doesn't mean they had a fan base. Sure Cintron has accomplished something throughout his career, but by the time he fought Canelo, he hadn't done anything in years. Heck, he was just on Friday Night Fights the fight before and lost ...

[QUOTE=KnockUTheFukOut]how am I overrated Lara? Because of my Signature Photo? Because I think he would stop Canelo? I am a boxing fan FIRST not just some guy who only root for Cuban fighters, if I feel Lara would have a problem with certain match ups...I WOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM SAYING THAT! I have...

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27]What kind of fan base did Cintron and Cotto's brother have?[/QUOTE] ricans..........

[QUOTE=mathed]That'd be a great fight, one that I'd favor Canelo to win. Lara has great skill but Canelo would be be to impose his size and wear Lara down.[/QUOTE] Too bad oscar delahoya disagrees with you.

This is about math, if canelo can fight Mayweather in about two fights no way he will be facing Lara. Lara is #1.
