Former WBA super welterweight champion Erislandy Lara watched last Saturday’s main event between Canelo and GGG, and feels he’s ready to test himself against either man.
“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.”
“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!”
Lara currently trains out of Houston with trainer Ronnie Shields. No word on if he’ll get a rematch with Canelo, or a fight with GGG next.
