Pound-for-pound rankings: Adrien Broner goes tumbling

Monday December 16th, 2013

Like his Cuban countryman, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Lara doesn't have a style that's particularly pleasing. But it is effective. In December, Lara dominated former junior middleweight titleholder Austin Trout, dropping him once in a lopsided decision. Lara is a brilliant counterpuncher, accurate with surprising power. Lara hopes to fight Saul Alvarez in his next fight.
