Lara Ready To Go To 160: I Want Golovkin or Canelo Next!

Former WBA super welterweight world champion Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs), felt inspired by the state of boxing after watching last Saturday night's main event between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fought an amazing fight, it was a true classic." said Lara.

"I want to congratulate both of them for putting together such a tremendous effort to bring the spotlight back on boxing. It would be a great honor to fight either fighter, and I would love to challenge myself against them."
Erislandy Lara has been training in Houston, Texas for his next fight with trainer Ronnie Shields, as he is working hard in the gym, getting ready for his next fight date.
"I am ready to make a statement and to challenge either fighter at middleweight, whether it is Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez in a rematch...I am ready!"

IN OTHER NEWS:  Leigh Park powerhouse, Joel McIntyre (17-2), heads into the next edition of Ultimate Boxxer, on November 2 at the O2 in London, after being subjected to two cancelled title fights in succession, but believes he can rebound by winning the light-heavyweight tournament.

“I’ve had a year of it, I was meant to fight Kirk Garvey for the Southern Area title in June and he pulled out two days before, then Miles Shinkwin pulled out on the Bank Holiday Monday before our fight. It’s been a series of massive disappointments to me,” the 30-year-old said.

“But I probably am the Ultimate Boxxer favourite, down to my experience, I’ll be going in as the 20-fight veteran, and, of course, I’ve been the English champ. I’m already sparring high-paced three-threes in preparation and I’ll be fitter and more focused than ever before to put all those frustrations to bed.”

[QUOTE=Raonic;19117511]Good point, though I don't think GGG lost (either fight) so he may want, and might get the 3rd fight.[/QUOTE] I thought he won the first but I gotta watch the 2nd again( bad stream).

Both "Canelo" & GEE break Lara @160lbs. His pitty pat chit won't fly at middleweight.

[QUOTE=Gentblue;19114408]Yes but so did GGG. Great rebound fight for both. [/QUOTE] Good point, though I don't think GGG lost (either fight) so he may want, and might get the 3rd fight.

Wait in line, it's Jermall's turn! You should've moved up for a shot a long time ago! Lara should be calling out Castano @ 154!
