Default Erislandy Lara vs Gennady Golovkin

Cuban slickness vs Kazakhstan power. Who wins?

Honestly not a terrible match-up.

Lara's game plan would be to frustrate Golovkin, and he just might.

Golovkin's game plan would be to maul Lara, and he just might.

Lara has underwhelmed me a number of times. He's too inactive to keep GGG off him and gives up too much size and strength in this matchup.

GGG my mid round T/KO.

I'm going to give Lara the benefit of the doubt and assume that he did hurt his right hand against Vanes. He still connected more often than Vanes.

With 2 functional hands and the knowledge he will never get Canelo, he might pull off his best performance yet. Whether thats enough against GGG remains to be seen.

I've never been underwhelmed by Lara.

I've also still not seen Martirosyan vs. Lara yet.

I think Lara frustrates and gives anyone problems from 154-160 and GGG is very hittable, only he's always hitting you back too. I can see Lara build an early lead, but GGG will wear him down. GGG by MD in a competitive fight.

golovkin is overrated but u need to throw punches to win a fight, lara would run around the ring in circles and refuse to engage golovkin by UD, with lara getting rocked possibly dropped a couple of times.

Lara's response to this fight would be that Golovkin hasn't done enough to earn a shot at him.

I wonder if GGG could lure some big 154 names with a 155lb title shot?

Probably a close Golovkin UD, where Lara supporters are left wishing he just would have thrown more.

I dunno, Lara seemed happy to go to Russia to fight Pirog, only to be met with silence.

Pirog seemed happy to come to the US to fight Lara, only to be met with silence.

Do you remember the context of Lara's callout? Pirog had just made a very large offer to Sergio. After Pirog said he'd be fine fighting Lara in Russia for the same money he pays his other challengers, Lara was not heard from again.

How about GGG fighting someone his own size? Does anyone want Sergio to fight him?

Well I don't think Lara ever has been close to a position to automatically command TV dates. And there would seem to be a reasonable expectation that the purse would be larger than that offered to the Martirosyans and Maciels, especially given all of the kvetching about lack of opponents willing to fight in Russia going on at that point in time.
