TERRELL GAUSHA - (20-0, 9 KOs) From Cleveland, Ohio & Training with Manny Robles in Norwalk, California
 
Q. How has training camp gone so far? Who have you been sparring with and what have they been able to do to prepare you for Lara? Have you tried anything new this training camp?
 
"Training has been great. We've been at it for 10 weeks. I've been sparring with good partners, even though I can't pronounce most of their names. We brought in a bronze medalist from the 2012 Olympics, Chris Pearson and a great Nigerian fighter as well. They're defensively skilled and as close as we could find to Lara's style. He's hard to mimic, but they're close. We're not really doing anything new, just working more rounds. I've done lots of 12-rounders in sparring, but we'll save the rest of our secrets for fight night."
 
Q. What does it mean to you to fight for a world title for the first time? Is there extra motivation from seeing other 2012 Olympians who've picked up titles?
 
"It's a blessing and a dream come true. I've been working on this since I first laced up the gloves. Not everyone gets this shot and I plan on taking full advantage. Those guys from the 2012 Olympics are my brothers. We talked about things like this back at the Olympics. Then they went out and showed me it's possible. I want to be the next one to pick up a title to fulfill my promise too."
 
Q. What kind of problems does Lara present in the ring? How do you prepare for his skill set and what he does well in the ring?
 
"I've been watching Lara for a while. I know he's a mover. Guys like that are slick and he's a good counter-puncher. He's a crafty veteran and has fought a lot of top guys. But I have a lot of experience myself. I'm undefeated and it's my time."
 
Q. What does it mean to you to be part of a tripleheader with the top talent in the division? How important is it to take advantage of this opportunity and put on the best performance possible?
 
"Being involved in this lets me know where I'm at. Not just anybody got on this card. We earned our way here and this night will open up other big fights in the division. There's no pressure for me, though. I put in all the hard work at the gym. On fight night, I just let things flow."

Gausha isn't that good IMO. Not much of a resume outside of some cans, so really not a lot to go on. But still, Lara is too slick. May be another boring Lara win, but a W is a W.…

I'm one of Lara's 6 fans here, so I'm riding with my boy! I'm not too familiar with Gausha, though.

I see Lara dominating Gausha. I cannot see any scenario where Gausha wins.
