At the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, on the undercard of Andy Ruiz vs. Chris Arreola, the fight between Cuban WBA junior middleweight champion Erislandi Lara and American Thomas Lamanna ended.
The challenger went forward from the start, trying to deliver a blow from the right. However, his attacking impulse did not make any impression on Lara. The Cuban veteran was noticeably superior to his rival in the class and easily avoided his blows, while marking his own hits.
Lara quickly took aim from the left, and after one of such blows, Lamanna collapsed heavily onto the canvas. The referee immediately gave the go-ahead, after which doctors began to help the American boxer. It took Lara 80 seconds and 8 precise strikes to win.
