Erislandy Lara and Canelo Alvarez just formally agreed to fight each other, and Lara is wasting no time trying to get inside Canelo’s head.
Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs), who is from Cuba, sent out this funny meme photo showing his plans to take Canelo to school when they meet on July 12.
Gotta love the touch on the photo with cute Canelo sitting in the front row and having an apple on his desk. Just a typical teacher’s pet.
Lara beat Austin Trout and Alfredo Angulo his last two times out. Incidentally, Canelo’s last two wins are over the same opponents (though he did get dominated by Floyd Mayweather Jr. in between). It was only natural that these two would meet.
Unfortunately for Lara, my early lean is towards Canelo in this fight.
