Canelo Alvarez Next Fight, Record & Updates
Still trying to decide on whether to order tonight's Canelo vs Lara bout?
Tonight, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Erislandy Lara will battle for junior middleweight supremacy.
On Saturday July 12th, one of the most anticipated match-ups of 2014 will take place as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (43-1-1 31KOs) takes on Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs).
To promote the upcoming July 12th PPV event against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, which has been accurately dubbed "Honor and Glory", current WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Erislandy Lara hosted a media workout at the Long Life Fighter Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday June 25th, and had much to say about his opponent to the press in attendance.
Since Miguel Cotto dominated Sergio Martinez on June 7th, most fight fans have been buzzing about a potential "Mexico vs. Puerto Rico" rivalry bout between Canelo Alvarez and the newly crowned Middleweight Champion.
After losing two consecutive fights to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Austin “No Doubt” Trout in 2012, four division world champion Miguel Angel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) has bounced back with two impressive knock-out victories and is once again the toast of the boxing community.
Last night, resurgent, red hot Miguel Cotto unleashed a literal beating, stopping Sergio Martinez in Round 10 via TKO in what was, perhaps, the best performance of the former's career.
July 24th is traditionally the hottest day of the calendar year in the northern hemisphere. But on Saturday, July 12th, the two best fighters in the Junior Middleweight division could heat things up to a sweltering inferno within the squared circle.
Will Canelo be taking too great a risk when he squares off against the largely-avoided Erislandy Lara tomorrow?
