Canelo Lara Preview SHOWTIME PPV Saturday, July 12
Canelo Alvarez is the favorite to defeat Erislandy Lara in the main event of a pay-per-view card being billed as “Honor and Glory.” The two will meet on Saturday, July 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
As of Friday, Alvarez’s odds to win were listed as -175 by Odds Shark.
Most acknowledge that Lara is a more skilled boxer, but his struggles against the plodding and slow Alfredo Angulo could be diminishing the confidence oddsmakers have in him on Saturday.
Though Lara stopped Angulo in the 10th round due to a grotesque eye injury, the Cuban was floored twice in the fight. Alvarez is quicker and arguably just as hard of a puncher as Angulo.
One has to wonder whether Lara will be able to withstand Alvarez’s assault. Canelo stopped Angulo in a much more lopsided affair in March.
