Erislandy Lara made it clear that he gave a lesson to Thomas lamanna by knocking him out in just one minute and 20 seconds on the undercard of PBC on Carson, California.
“He said in the press conference that he would knock me out, but he went straight to receive that blow,” he commented. Lara in the post-combat interview. “Maybe he was overthinking it instead of executing it.”
A left wing of the Cuban contacted the ear of LaManna, turning off the lights in just over a minute, so the referee Thomas taylor ruled end of combat.
The previous one was full of inflammatory statements from both boxers, but the Cuban ended with his hand raised in a very simple way.
Despite his already long 13-year career in boxing, Lara he has no plans to think about near retirement. You feel like you can still improve and look for another title opportunity.
“I feel great physically. I will continue demanding from my body until it tells me that it cannot take any more, ”he confessed. “I don’t feel like I have received much punishment in my career and I know that I have at least another three years to continue at my best.”
The last defeat of Lara came with a controversial split decision before Jarret hurd in 2018 and has since recorded a draw with Brian Brown and three triumphs: Ramón Álvarez, Greg Vendetti Y Thomas lamanna.
The native of Guantanamo now he’s waiting in the super welterweight to go for Jermell charlo or, in the medians, look for the Japanese Ryota murata, although it is too early to know the direction it will take.
