Photos: Vanes, Lara, Garcia, Barros Open Workouts

Two of the hottest divisions take the spotlight when HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: VANES MARTIROSYAN VS. ERISLANDY LARA AND MIKEY GARCIA VS. JONATHAN BARROS is seen SATURDAY, NOV. 10 at 9:45 p.m. (ET/PT) from the Lafite Ballroom at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas, exclusively on HBO. The team of Bob Papa, Max Kellerman and Roy Jones Jr. will be ringside for the event, which will be available in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino. Photos by Chris Farina/Top Rank.

Undefeated Vanes Martirosyan (32-0, 20 KOs), from Glendale, Cal., goes up against top contender Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KOs) of Guantanamo, Cuba, now living in Miami, Fla., in a scheduled 12-round super welterweight title elimination bout.  A member of the 2004 U.S. Olympic boxing team, Martirosyan scored impressive wins over future champions Austin Trout, Andre Berto and Timothy Bradley as an amateur before launching his unblemished pro career.  He’s trained by Hall of Famer Freddie Roach.

Lara, who captured world amateur titles in 2005 and 2006 before defecting from Cuba in 2008, has just one professional loss – to Paul Williams in a hotly debated decision last year – and is determined to prove he is next in line for the title opportunity.

First up for the night, top contender Mikey Garcia (29-0, 25 KOs) of Oxnard, Cal. takes on former featherweight champ Jonathan Barros (34-3-1, 18 KOs), from Mendoza, Argentina, in a scheduled ten-round bout.  The undefeated Garcia comes from a boxing family: He’s trained by his older brother Robert, while his father and uncle, both former fighters, are also trainers.  Barros was a featherweight titleholder in 2007 but relinquished it in his first defense, and looks to reestablish himself in the highly competitive 126-pound division.

Can't wait for this fight. Vanes will win. Book it. Bump this thread Saturday night. I'm very surprised all the Lara fans are displaying THIS much confidence......As a fellow boxing fan, I just want to tell you all not to…
