Vanes Martirosyan- Erislandy Lara bout due November 10

PanARMENIAN.Net - WBC Vanes Martirosyan (32-0, 20 KO’s) will finally be facing his first quality opponent of his career when he takes on #2 WBC Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KO’s) in a WBC 154 pound final eliminator bout on November 10 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The winner of the Lara-Martirosyan fight will become the mandatory challenger for WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, although they’ll have to wait around to fight him until next year some time if they’re lucky. Golden Boy Promotions will likely draw it out for as long as possible before they put their young star Alvarez in with either Lara or Martirosyan, boxingnews24.com reported.
