Photos: Lara in Tough Sparring For Canelo Showdown

LAS VEGAS -- With less than two weeks to go until his SHOWTIME PPV® showdown with Canelo Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs), WBA Super Welterweight World Champion Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs) is looking sensational in sparring and running on all cylinders. Photos by Paul Hernandez

"My sparring partners are pushing me with numerous styles and I'm adapting to all of them comfortably," Lara said. "I told them to come extra hard to prepare me for the pressure Canelo is going to bring.  I feel great and my timing is right on.

"I know Canelo is training hard for this fight, as am I, but unfortunately for him, there is nothing he can do to surprise me. He's going to find out on July 12 that I'm the superior fighter.  His insecurities as a fighter will surface on fight night -- that I can guarantee."

[QUOTE=Skills-Kill;14717435]So, the supposed rehydration clause didn't exist but he only rehydrated to 165lbs when he normally goes up to 170lbs+? How does this make sense? I don't know if there was a clause or not for the fight but this…

[QUOTE=Biolink;14715601]I wonder why Canelo's stamina is so pedestrian. He doesn't move much, he doesn't throw that many punches. He does tend to put 'everything' on his punches. Still I can't imagine it would be that hard for a word class…
