Lara Wants to Leave an Impression Friday Night

PhilBoxing.com


To list all of Cuban southpaw Erislandy Lara's amateur accomplishments would take several minutes. He's been an elite fighter for many years. And although some amateur stars don't translate well into professionals, Lara (15-0, 10 KOs) is currently on a four-fight first-round knockout streak against intermediate-level opposition.

Some in boxing are starting to cite Lara as a worthy challenger to fighters such as Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez -- which is why in his 10-round main event this Friday, March 25, on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights broadcast from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, he must not only win, but continue to impress.


Lara will face Chicago's Carlos Molina, a former NABO Champion widely regarded as having dealt Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. his first professional loss (except on the scorecards).

Through a translator, he spoke about his impending run at stardom and the pressures he faces.

What do you know about Carlos Molina?

I know he is a good boxer and a former world contender who was ranked in the top ten in the world. He's very good and he's beaten some very good fighters.

Should we expect your fifth consecutive first-round knockout?

I never look for a KO, but if it come it comes, I'll take it.

Teddy Atlas told you after one of your recent fights that you are ready for Miguel Cotto... Are you?

Without a doubt, I'm the best junior middleweight in the world and I'd love to fight all the top guys, including Sergio Martinez. I think I have the style to get to that guy. At 154, I will fight him any time.

Have there been any talks between you and (WBA Champ) Austin Trout's camp? How long until we see you in a world title fight?

I'm supposed to fight Trout, but now I hear he's getting cold feet. I know that with this fight I will be on everyone's mind by showing ESPN's 98 million homes how good I am. It's only a matter of time until one of the world champions is forced to fight me or vacate.
