Erislandy Lara (20-2-2, 12 KOs) is set to return to the ring on June 12, where he’ll headline the Premier Boxing Champions card on Spike from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Lara will take on Delvin Rodriguez (28-7-4, 16 KOs), while knockout artist Artur Beterbiev (8-0, 8 KOs) faces Doudou Ngumbu (34-6, 13 KOs) in the co-feature.

“I’m very excited to be fighting on Spike TV on June 12th in Chicago.” said Lara. “Delvin Rodriguez is a tough veteran fighter who I respect.  He has a lot of heart and determination. But once the bell rings I’m looking for the knockout!”

Lara will be defending his 154-pound title, for the first time, having won it last December with a decision win over Ishe Smith.

This edition of PBC on Spike begins at 9 p.m. ET.

“On June 12, I am going to change everyone’s mind about me and show that I can beat Lara,” said Rodriguez.

Tickets for the event are priced at $151, $101, $51, and $31 and are now on sale.
