Erislandy Lara: I don’t owe Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez anything other than left hands

The Cuban is tired of Canelo's camp insinuating that he should be grateful for this Las Vegas chance

ERISLANDY LARA has said he doesn’t owe Canelo Alvarez anything other than left hands as he prepares do battle with the Mexican superstar this weekend.

The Cuban light-middleweight takes on the dangerous Alvarez this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, live on BoxNation, and despite being one of the divisions most avoided fighters says he isn’t indebted to the former unified champion for taking the fight.

“I don’t owe him anything other than left hands. I forced this fight. It wasn’t because he wanted to take this fight [that he agreed to fight],” said Lara.
