WBA super welterweight champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (27-3-3, 15 KOs) scored a clear cut twelve round unanimous decision over #11 rated Greg Vendetti (22-4-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Vendetti was game, but the 37-year-old Lara mostly outclassed him with his skills and mobility. Scores were 116-112, 117-111, 117-111.

“Tonight, I dominated the fight,” said Lara. “After this performance, I’m looking to step in the ring with any of the other champions. I definitely want the winner of Jermell Charlo vs. Jeison Rosario. If that fight can be made, I’ll be ready to go.”

We have a few rules to make our comment section more enjoyable for everyone.
1. Keep comments related to boxing.
2. Be respectful, polite and keep it clean.
3. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Offending posts will be removed.
  • Just keep Lara away from inside pressure fighters who can body punch, and Lara will win by UD or TKO.

    However, there is a tough 154 pounder from Argentina named Brian Castano, and I would love to see Lara fight Castano in a rematch (unfinished business). If the odds are right, I will bet on Castano to win. Unfortunately, I do not have a “sit rep” on Castano.

    • It’s why I didn’t waste my time with it! I wasted my time watching Postol run around the ring instead! Ramirez should’ve gone postal on that guy but it wasn’t the same Ramirez as in the past! Maybe he’s pass his expiration date!

  • I watched the fight…. and started doing laundry somewhere after the 6th round….
    Lara can make his fights boring…. great skills, but unwilling to take the risk involved with getting those ko’s.
    He’ll continue to bore audiences whether he fights Charlo, Rosario, or any lesser known fighter.

  • I love the sport of boxing I think its great to be able to keep up with the boxers,, now a days,,,kind of lost sight of boxing thanks to this article we are on on a comeback very appreciated

    • Lara has to be the most boring fighter I’ve ever seen and I’ve been watching fights since the 1950 s

  • I just wish Lara could have fought FMJ. I think he’s the only guy that could have actually beat him; Lara adapts. He beat Paul Williams in his prime. Anybody who watched that fight knows he won.
    Watch Lara/Angulo. One of the best examples of a fighter overcoming adversity,adapting and winning through attrition. In my top 5

  • Lara vs the winner of Charlo vs Rosario is exactly what the boxing gods ordered! Someone get Lara a title shot ASAP!

  • Lara beat an 11th ranked fighter he was suppose to beat and he now thinks he can challenge for a belt Lara’s skills are clearly diminished and he is no match for Charlo or Rosario. Lara needs to chill or retire before he gets hurt. He could fight J Rock if he thinks he still has it.
