TQBR Radio 7/15: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Vs. Erislandy Lara Recap

Above, an artist depiction of Erislandy Lara’s performance against  Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, depending on who you ask (via).

Okay, it wasn’t the blood-soaked war that nobody thought it was going to be, but Alvarez-Lara was one of those “necessary” fights, wasn’t it? Was it really the type of fight we want to see again right away, though? Shouldn’t we get C.J. Ross’ card before we decide anything long term?

This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, Bad Left Hook‘s James Foley and TQBR’s Patrick Connor will jump on fistic grenades all over the place. Need serious boxing discourse? You may need to seek out a different boxing podcast. Want to know exactly what a couple of #purist #boxingheads think about a fight or two? You’ve come to the right place.

Also on this week’s agenda: the Alvarez-Lara Pay-Per-View undercard (Mares-Oquendo, Vargas-Lopez and Herrera-Perez), and a preview of next week’s Macau card that features Zou Shiming, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Brian Viloria and Rex Tso.
