Erislandy Lara Should Be Canelo Alvarez’s Next Opponent
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez had a dominating win against Alfredo Angulo on Saturday and now it is time for Golden Boy Promotions to solidify him as the best fighter in the world not named Floyd Mayweather.
Erislandry Lara, who has also defeated Anuglo, isn’t shy about calling out Canelo and letting the world know that he wants the fight. Lara struggled against Angulo and was even knocked down by him in the later rounds of their fight. Canelo seemed unfazed by any of Angulo’s punches and was throwing ring shaking blows up until the fight was stopped in round 10.
Canelo surely looked as though he’d be able to put away Lara with the effort that he brought to the ring last Saturday and now is the time for Golden Boy to make this fight a reality.
If Canelo can get past Lara then cross promotional fights will open up for him. With Timothy Bradley, Sergio Martinez, and Miguel Cotto all being possible big selling opponents for Canelo.
