ERISLANDY LARA is eager for a rematch with Canelo Alvarez and even more keen to face middleweight menace Gennady Golovkin.

First, he must successfully defend his WBA super-welterweight title in a rematch with Vanes Martirosyan in Las Vegas on Saturday night [May 21].

The Cuban slickster was edged out by Canelo in 2014 and has struggled to nail down fights with other marquee names, but hopes things will change after Saturday.
