Erislandy Lara might not fit into the plans of Golden Boy Promotions, when it comes to future bouts, but he oesn't care he has never cared, he just wants you to try and beat him in the ring, and so far no one has been able to make that a reality. (I'm not counting the Williams robbery) "I know I'm the underdog, it doesn't bother me, I'm just glad I'm getting the chance to fight him. It is crazy how, Canelo could be favored over me, when he fights only, four rounds. After four rounds he uses the same move over and over again, I will take him late, in deep waters." Lara stated at the L.A. Presser.
We give all props, to Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez for making this fight, and wanting to step up to the plate, because this is a fight he could have avoided for the rest of his career, and he took the road fans wanted him to travel. Now we have this news that Golden Boy and Top Rank Promotions, may be ended the cold war, and that a future fight between Manny Pacquiao and Canelo, has captured the minds of the fans who want nothing more than to have this ridiculous was over with, but Lara is still going to be the wall you have to knockdown to get there, and guess what, he isn't going lightly.
