“I’m expecting one of the toughest fights of my career on July 12,” Alvarez said. “So knowing that I’ll have my fans cheering me on, not just in the arena but in movie theaters throughout the country, has me even more motivated to beat Erislandy Lara and give the fans a fight to remember.”
The matchup between Alvarez and Lara is really No. 1 vs No. 2 in the 154-pound division. Lara says he will make a statement on July 12.
“This is the fight that the fans and I demanded and now they will get to see it on a grand scale,” Lara said. “There is no better situation in boxing then to see two hungry fighters willing to put everything on the line for the honor and glory of their fans. I’ll be sending a strong message to the world come July 12th, that you can count on!”
