Q, based on your description, i’m skeptical that you actually watched the fight. what i saw was a completely bedeviled Lara becoming steady target practice for the unorthodox Molina. quite frankly, Lara became increasingly shocked with his own inability to either discourage Molina or avoid being consistently tagged by Molina’s lunging leads and combos. it was a convincing win for Molina. marketing interests are the primary reason the nod wasn’t given to Molina. the “experts” have been hyping Cuban amateurs since the Cold War era but a truly great Cuban pro has yet to emerge. Gamboa and Rigondeaux may be able to change that situation. nonetheless, Gamboa DID bail from his matchup v. Rios and Donaire is the only elite name on Rigondeaux’s ring-resume. only time will tell. meanwhile, replay that Lara v. Molina bout and reconcile your opinion with mine. at which point, you will truly Get It.

hecdog – The problem I have is that Lara is scared of guys with power…you saw how reluctant he as against Martirosyan, he was truly scared of the power…not saying he will be scared of Angulo, BUT, there is power to fear here for Lara.

Watched Lara’s fight with Freddy Hernandez – Lara is a classic brought to a art form head butter. He may be too slick for Angulo- but Angulo does have the KO power. Will be surprised and pleased if Angulo wins.

The Best!: Is Lara overrated or his opponents underrated? I don’t think he’s earned an overrated stamp, he’s not even that known really to the masses. Canelo fans tend to call him overrated to justify Canelo ducking him.

The Best!

Angula doesnt move enough and Lara is way over rated.

te tumbo: I watched Lara Vs. Molina…. it was a close fight and that’s about it. nobody was robbed, nobody won the bout… the key story in that fight was that Lara was supposed to run through the guy and he did not at all. Very close fight. I’d “avoid” Molina also if I were Lara, and try to fight the higher ups. Canelo has been avoiding Lara like the plague, that’s what’s been happening. And Lara just fought Vanes, so he’s fighting the best at 154…. Lara has faced much better opposition at 154 than Canelo by far. Those are facts not opinions.

See, if Floyd has no shame in facing people like guerrero and ortiz, he shouldn’t fear facing Lara either, right after Canelo, which will not be a cakewalk nor walk in the park for Floyd either. Lara unfortunately, given his skill, may be forced to wait, like Winky Wright was forced to wait for the big fights. Even though Trinidad lost against Wright, Trinidad never fought easy fights that were predetermined for him to win. Nonetheless, Lara is a well kept secret who is too good for his own good.

I am reluctantly persuaded by posts here that Lara wins – will still root for Angulo however – he is never in a dull fight

Angulo got his ears boxed off by damaged Cintron, he got knockedafkoutCold by Kirkland, in Mexico and Molina ran from Kirkland all night long holding all night long.. it was laughable.. Lara is going to hit his slow Plodding Steriods abuser all night long… and then he’s going after Canelo once Mayweather exposes the Red headed Oompa Loompa… who’s been avoiding him for over a year!

I guarantee 100% without any doubt that Lara stops Angulo. This fight will not go the distance. Trust me on this.

no destruction going on here unless Angulo does it, which is unlikely. i think Lara is a much better fighter than Cintron but not better than Molina who he continues to avoid like the plague. Lara’s been a disappointment, thus far, but he should be able to outclass Angulo. if he’s smart, he avoids exchanges to do it. if he doesn’t, the tide will very suddenly shift in Angulo’s favor. Lara better be prepared to weather that storm.

Boxer vs puncher? Always take the boxer 2/3 times. Lara should get ud unless he gets careless

I can’t see a guy who got outboxed by Kirkland WINNING vs. Lara. Another EASY Fight to CORRECTLY predict.

Two good fighters, I just think Lara is the better fighter. I see him getting a UD, or a TKO around the 8th or 9th round.

What a match up, Angulo has shown in his 1st bout with Hunter a marked improvement though he is no Martirosyan. Lara has enough pop to keep anyone honest. Lara by UD ….

Posted June 3, 2013 7:24 pm 


Yes, this is the classic “Boxer vs. Puncher” match-up. And they are both great at what they do. Most of the time I favor the Boxer, but I think I’m leaning towards the puncher this time. Angulo is just one hard, strong, stubborn mofo and I’m not sure Lara hits hard enough to keep Angulo off of him, or at least slow him down a little. I’m interested to see who the winner of this one gets next.

Stay away from my pc women !!! Alfredo by smashing victory !!!!!!

Nice boxing match here. I suspect Lara will try and pot shot and move the whole fight. Angulo’s job is the cut off the ring and smash Lara’s body. Classic boxer vs puncher showdown. I do think Angulo will catch up to notch a win.

Lara will bet any Junior Middleweight around if given the chance. He will destroy Angulo by the 8th round or sooner. Angulo is a tough come straight at you fighter that has no defense or technical boxing skills. Lara estroys him, and will look better than ever against Angulo’s plodding style.
