HOUSTON, TX (September 17, 2018) - Former WBA super welterweight world champion Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs), felt inspired by the state of boxing after watching last Saturday night's main event between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fought an amazing fight, it was a true classic." said Lara. "I want to congratulate both of them for putting together such a tremendous effort to bring the spotlight back on boxing. It would be a great honor to fight either fighter, and I would love to challenge myself against them."

Erislandy Lara has been training in Houston, Texas for his next fight with trainer Ronnie Shields, as he is working hard in the gym, getting ready for his next fight date.

"I am ready to make a statement and to challenge either fighter at middleweight, whether it is Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez in a rematch...I am ready!"
