On July 12th Canelo Álvarez will be stepping back into the ring in Las Vegas for a bout being billed as “Honor v. Glory.” His opponent this go-around is Erislandy Lara. Don’t know who Erislandy Lara is? Don’t worry, not many casual boxing fans do. However, know this Lara is legit, so much so that many have been avoiding a fight with him. We here at ‘LLERO believe this bout has the potential to be what Mayweather v. Maidana was. We all know how that turned out!
With this surprise theme in mind we thought it an appropriate time to take a look at some of the reasons you may want to root for Team Canelo, but also a few that may have asking for a trade to Team Lara (or at least a chance to visit and see what its all about).
