Erislandy Lara Slides His Way Onto The Pound For Pound List

Image

El Orro de Guantanamo, the gold of Guantanamo, established himself as a pound for pound talent this weekend by picking apart Austin Trout. Going into the fight Trout vs Lara was seen as a 50/50 affair, but Lara made that look ridiculous with his performance this weekend.

Lara is 19-1-2, although he should be 21-0-1. He has clear wins over Paul Williams (Whether the judges are aware or not), Alfredo Angulo, and Austin Trout. It would be hard to find a guy to beat him around his weight class, aside from Floyd Mayweather. Hopefully Canelo has the heart to face him.

This move drops Mikey Garcia out of the top ten. Garcia is right there on the bubble, and a big win or a loss by anybody else could put him right back on the list.

Do you think Lara deserves to be on the list? Let me know in the comments section below.
