Erislandy Lara: I Did What Canelo Alvarez Couldn't Do!

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KO's) soundly defeated Austin Trout (26-2, 14 KO's) by unanimous decision in a technical bout. The scores were 115-109 and 117-110 twice. Trout never seemed comfortable in the ring. Lara sent Trout down in the 11th round for only the second time in Trout's career.

"I did what Canelo couldn't do. I dominated Trout and I dropped him. Now we have to make a fight that everyone wants to see which is me against Canelo," said Lara.

"I'm coming right back," said Trout. "Who can say that they fought such high caliber fighters as Cotto, Canelo and Lara back-to-back-to-back? His style was tricky, but I don't sign up for easy fights. He was the better man tonight."

[QUOTE=King-;14007737]I like Lara but that's not saying much. It's obvious beating Austin Trout and 40 telemarketers and Starbucks baristas shouldn't get you a fight with Floyd. [B]Lara would put a clinic on Canelo. Hell I think Vanes beats Canelo[/B][/QUOTE] leave…
