    I’ll argue anything with anyone. Do you morons realise that if someone in blue actually gives a fuck they know exactly where you post from and all your aliases. That said don’t be an asshole. Continue puo3

    Easy win for Lara, IMO, so long as he remembers to throw punches throughout the round.

    For some reason, like a million people will tune in to watch a Lara fight.

    Lara is so talented that he beats people without throwing hands.

    Pretty impressive if you think about it.

    I would really like to see Lara vs Angulo rematch.

    Yeah judges score his fights by "footwork" they don't even bother looking to see if he threw a punch.

    Angulo is farther gone than Brandon Rios.

    Lara will lose against J, Hurd, because Lara simply has trouble with bigger stronger fighters that come forward and can take his punching power and are naturally much stronger and bigger then himself. Lara does better against fighters trying to out box him and are basically his size, so he can be confortable and just out box them using movement and counters. Lara just likes to stay in the pocket to long and doesn't know how to use proper movement and angles against bigger slower stronger fighters like Pernnel W, does and Floyd does, Lara just can't box Canelo like Floyd did using his legs. Lara is more flatfooted and uses little movement unlike Pernnel did.

    Just watch Lara vs Canelo when Canelo started using body work against Lara and watch Lara vs Angulo.

    Lara vs Angulo


    Hurd is a much bigger, stronger and a better fighter then Angulo and it's not even a debate and just look how much trouble Angulo gave Lara in their fight, expect the same fight but Hurd stopping Lara or a close decision for Hurd, this is my pick for this fight.

    I don't know how Hurd even makes super welter weight, he's basically a cruiser weight, light heavy weight fighter, just look at his size against Lara it's insane and he's thick and huge and not skinny and lanky.

    I thought he beat Paul Williams pretty clearly (many say it is the biggest robbery in recent years... at the time anyways). Hurd has a much similar style to Williams, than Angulo.

    Granted, Lara is older, and Hurd is even bigger than Williams.

    Great fight tho. Wouldn't mind seeing Lara lose, to give some hype to young blood.

    Hurd wins this...in this case all of the technical skill that Lara has won't get him the win vs. monster size for the division.

    I think this is the fight that Lara loses. He hasn't had a big fight since Trout. He is a low output fighter that uses his reach to peck away at his opponent. Problem is that he is at a distinct reach and height disadvantage. Hurd will put his gloves up and march down Lara, tiring him out. He will be able to hit Lara when Lara is trying to hit him and will win a war of attrition. Lara doesn't look good along the ropes. I think Lara is the better talent, but this is a fight that he loses.

    It then sets up Hurd vs Charlo, which is, in my opinion, and easier fight for Charlo. Charlo needs his opponent right in front of him. Lara makes Charlo look simple, but Hurd makes Charlo look good. So whoever is pulling all these strings knows that Lara is getting old and not very exciting, and that he is sitting on a belt. Hurd is a better match to peel away those belts and make Lara lose his relevance.

    I'm probably sounding cynical, but this is probably how it will play out.

    i have this playing out the exact the same way, cotto margo 1

    incredible odds well get in live betting hurd after the first three rounds, both on the ml and itd.

    hurd might get to +1200 on the itd the skill level discrepancy will be so immense in the first quarter of the fight
