MIAMI - Super welterweight world champion Erislandy Lara (24-2-2, 14 KOs) continued his reign as one of the top 154-pounders in the world and delivered a sensational knockout of former world champion Yuri Foreman (34-3, 10 KOs) in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike Friday night from Hialeah Park Racing and Casino in Miami

"Of course I'm disappointed, but this is boxing. I got caught with a perfect punch and that's what happens. I tried very hard to shake it off, but he got me," stated Foreman.

"I have been hit harder in my career, but I take nothing away from him. He's a very strong puncher in his prime and I give him credit. He was as good as I expected him to be. I will take some time to talk to my team and my family and see what comes next, as far as boxing."

In front of a huge Cuban audience, Lara needed just a single left uppercut to drop and stop Foreman at 1:47 of round four. Foreman was also down in round three from a questionable knockdown that could have been ruled a slip.

"I'm very happy with my performance tonight. He was a little bit awkward, so I had to make some adjustments and we got him out of there. I'm ready to fight the best in the world, Golovkin, Canelo... whoever is willing to step in the ring with me, I'm willing to fight," Lara said.

"I love fighting in Miami in front of all my Cuban fans. The fans here bring out the best in me and I always have a good night of boxing. I want to dedicate this fight to Luis DeCubas Sr., whose birthday is today and has helped me throughout my career."
