Golovkin, Charlo brothers, Spence. 39-year-old Lara voiced the desired rivals


The 39-year-old holder of a secondary WBA World middleweight title (up to 72.6 kg), Cuban Erislandi Lara (29-3-3, 17 KOs), is far from thinking about ending his career. On the contrary, now he verbally feels stronger than ever, and is ready to prove it in battles against the very top opposition.

“I want to fight both of the Charlo brothers, either of them, and I would love to welcome Danny Garcia into his new weight class, some form of contractual weight,” Lara says. – If Keith Thurman wants to fight the best, I am also open to meet him in the intermediate category. Errol Spence and Gennady Golovkin are two names that I would love to fight too. I know that I am one of the best fighters in the world and I want to fight opponents that people consider to be legends. Fight them and defeat them.”

Erislandi made it clear that he is pleased with the cooperation with the new compatriot coach Ismael Salas:

“With my new coach, I am learning how to fight more on the inside. I already hit harder than ever and have become much more dangerous. I can still box when I need to, but I can also force opponents to retreat, which many people never expected from me and my style. I’m the most accomplished middleweight fighter at the moment and I’m open to any challenge.”

Recall that on May 28, Lara successfully defended the title, beating and stopping the Irishman Gary O’Sullivan in a complete mismatch.
