Canelo Alvarez targets Erislandy Lara

Former world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs) is taking aim at WBA “regular” super welterweight beltholder Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs) as his next opponent. “My next fight will be on July 12 at the MGM in Las Vegas, Nevada,” said Canelo via his Instragram page. “We have several options for opponents, and one name is top is Lara. It has already been offered to him. He only needs to accept and stop talking so much!”

Lara is currently scheduled to defend his WBA title against Ishe Smith on May 2, so if he accepts Canelo’s offer, he would be back in the ring nine weeks after that fight.
