    Agreed. There won't be no fencing from Hurd, and I don't think he'll mind taking a punch to give one.

    i fear lara is losing it physically. he dominated the last fight, but looked a lot softer. he's 34, he's going to look like an old fighter any day now.

    and i don't think his style works well when you slow down.

    I really don’t know how much Lara has deteriorated lately, and that’s the big unknown variable here. However, it is always counterintuitive for me to choose against the better (superior) boxer based on the size and punching power of his opponent. Paul Williams as tall as Hurd, had longer reach (79”) than Hurd’s (76”) and Lara’s (74”), and he was a much better boxer than most; yet, Lara outboxed Paul, and would have done similar to Hurd... few years ago???...
