Lara's Trainer: Canelo Looked Like a Child, An Amateur

By Edward Chaykovsky

Some time has passed, and trainer Ronnie Shields is still very confident that his boxer, WBA 'regular' junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-2-2, 12KOs) did more than enough to beat Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) on July 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo won a twelve round majority decision.

Even with the controversy and fans debating over who deserved the victory, Shields has no expectations of a rematch.

"They realize one thing, that Lara was too tough for him and he made him look bad. He made Canelo look like a child, made him look like an amateur. Everybody sees it, everybody saw it, so they’re gonna move on to somebody that’s gonna stand right in front of him and bang with him," Shields told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Those who believe Canelo won, say Lara moved too much and didn't throw enough punches.

"Our guy, Lara, he has a style, he’s a boxer. Everybody knew that going in, that he was a boxer not known to stand in the middle of the ring and go toe to toe with anybody. He hasn’t done that in any fight, so why start now? He’s so good at what he does," Shields said.
