Hurd could be a super middle. I think he could push Lara's shit in.
definition of #DKSAB
Hurd has a punchers chance against a guy thats pretty hard to find.
Lara beats himself in this one if he loses at all.
We shall see.
Lara outboxes this bum EASILY.
He has a tendency to fight to his opponent's level and IS getting older. I still think Lara wins easy, but it would be nice if this was one of those fights where Lara actually threw punches and looked good like he did against Trout. THAT was a good performance. He'll never fight like that again...
I'll reiterate that I think Hurd has a real chance here. Hurd is reasonably good at putting on pressure and he's massive for the weight. Add in that he has good stamina, is tough, and can punch, and he poses a legitimate threat to an aging Lara who hasn't faced a live body in about 4 years.
I have Lara at 2/1 in English, I’ll punt a little.
I'd be down. 100 USD?
Where will this be? It can't be at the Barclays cause UFC 223 is there on that date.
Im pumped to see this fight, although its competing against Khabib vs Ferguson.
They wont get the Barclays for this fight (which would be ideal) because the UFC is there that night
The junior middleweight world title unification fight between Jarrett Hurd (21-0, 15 KOs) and Erislandy Lara (25-2-2, 14 KOs), which is scheduled to headline a Showtime card on April 7, was announced in late January along with most of the network’s schedule for the first half of the year but did not yet heave a site. Although there was a lot of discussion about the fight landing at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, it won’t be there. Instead, it appears headed to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which has the request for that date and venue on the agenda for its March 13 meeting. Date and site requests are generally a formality, though the promoters could make a better a deal for the fight with another venue before the meeting.

If Angulo could put Lara on his arse 4 years ago, a 34 years old version of Lara can very well meet an unpleasant fate against a bigger, taller, stronger, more durable brawler.
Yeah, that generally covers my line of thinking. Lara is an excellent boxer, but truly aggressive pressure has gotten to him in the past, even when he was much younger. Hurd is relentless, huge, has stamina, and can punch. He's got a very nice chance here in my eyes.
One of these fights that gives you either the most pleasant "I told you so" or the worst "what the hell was I thinking ?" moment.
I stand by Hurd.
lol, true. There have been too many of the latter for me, so let's hope for the former.
It will either be great or be so frustrating to watch you'll end up hating boxing by the time it's over.
Like I said before I think Hurd's best skill here is going to be his lack of skill. He is so damn rough around the edges and seemingly untrained that he will give Lara problems. If he knew how to box properly he would get schooled all night. He doesn't though so at point Lara will have no idea what's coming.
