1-EW5G1434

It was a one sided fight. Not that anyone was really surprised by that, Delvin Rodriguez has had a long career and has been in more than his share of ring wars. After having been brutalized by a reinvigorated Miguel Cotto in 2013, few would have imagined him getting another shot at a title belt.

Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Championship series was ready to showcase Lara’s talents to a national audience, and they believed that Delvin was the tough, gritty type of fighter who would provide just enough of a challenge to allow their charge to shine.

Lara (20-2-2, 12ko) has yet to box in 2015, his most recently fight a points shut out over ‘The Money Team’s” Ishe Smith last December. This followed his controversial SD loss to Canelo Alvarez 5 months previously – a fight that split opinion, though the Cuban believed he won the contest on the backfoot as opposed to the pressure fighting style of Alvarez that many believe was enough to nick it.
