Lara Scores Fourth-Round Knockout Victory over Former World Champion Yuri Foreman
Super Welterweight World Champion Erislandy Lara Scores Fourth-Round Knockout Victory over Former World Champion Yuri Foreman in Main Event of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike Friday Night from Hialeah Park Racing & Casino in Miami. MIAMI – Super welterweight world champion Erislandy Lara (24-2-2, 14 KOs) continued his reign as one of the top 154-pounders in the world and delivered a sensational knockout of former world champion Yuri Foreman (34-3, 10 KOs) in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike Friday night from Hialeah Park Racing and Casino in Miami
In front of a huge Cuban audience, Lara needed just a single left uppercut to drop and stop Foreman at 1:47 of round four. Foreman was also down in round three from a questionable knockdown that could have been ruled a slip.
“I’m very happy with my performance tonight. He was a little bit awkward, so I had to make some adjustments and we got him out of there.
“I’m ready to fight the best in the world, Golovkin, Canelo… whoever is willing to step in the ring with me, I’m willing to fight.
“I love fighting in Miami in front of all my Cuban fans. The fans here bring out the best in me and I always have a good night of boxing. I want to dedicate this fight to Luis DeCubas Sr., whose birthday is today and has helped me throughout my career.”
