The new “regular” WBA middleweight champion (up to 72.6 kg), Cuban veteran Erislandy Lara (28-3-3, 16 KO) evaluated his Saturday performance against the American Thomas Lamanna (30-5-1, 12 KO).
Recall that Lara fought for the first time in a champion fight in the 160 pounds limit and knocked out an opponent in the opening round.
“At the press conference, he said that he would knock me out, but he himself came across a blow. Maybe he’s gotten too caught up in it.
I feel great. And I will continue to perform until my body says that I am no longer able to do it. I haven’t suffered much damage in my career, and that will give me at least three more years, ”said the fighter.
