Erislandy Lara endeavors to get back on the triumphant track when he faces Brian Castano for the WBA (normal) junior middleweight title on Saturday, March 2 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The smooth and sly Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs) ventures inside the ring without precedent for 11 months, having lost the WBA (super) junior middleweight title in a standout amongst the best battles of 2018 — a tight split-choice thrashing to Jarrett Hurd. A rematch had been arranged by the authorizing body, however Hurd selected to take a new turn for the present.
Castano (15-0, 11 KOs) hopes to protect the title for the third time subsequent to scoring a 6th round knockout over Emmanuel de Jesús in November 2016. Amid his title rule, Castano’s beaten Michel Soro and Cédric Vitu.
