Team Lara: If Dzinziruk Gets an HBO Date, He Needs Us

By Rick Reeno

Manager Luis DeCubas Jr. has advised BoxingScene.com that Erislandy Lara (15-1-1, 10KOs) is ready, willing and able to face WBO junior middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk (37-1, 23KOs) in the fall - if HBO comes through with a promised television date for Dzinziruk. If HBO fails to deleive, Dzinziruk will likely have to travel overseas to make a mandatory defense against Lukas Konecny.

"If HBO decides to give Dzinziruk a date on the network he should fight Erislandy Lara this fall. Look Dzinziruk is undefeated at 154-pounds but based on the way he performed against Martinez he probably doesn't deserve a date unless its with a world-class guy like Lara. I believe its an intriguing match-up after the way Lara beat Williams there's no telling what Erislandy is capable of," Decubas Jr. said to BoxingScene.com.

"Obviously we would love a rematch but since Paul Williams or his team have not come on record since July 9, I would be amazed if he's willing to do it again. I think he's waiting around until Lara's next fight is announced and then he'll return. Erislandy is ready and willing to fight anybody at 154-pounds."

If the fight is in the US(assuming HBO puts it on) then who the hell is going to buy tickets??? Neither guy has any fan base in the US. The attendance will be piss poor.
