Watch Erislandy Lara vs Jarrett Hurd Boxing Online stream Lara vs Hurd Fight 2018 April 7th unification fight between Erislandy Lara and Jarrett Hurd on Showtime is reportedly heading to the StubHub Center in Carson, California. RingTV broke the news of the Lara-Hurd fight heading to the StubHub Center. It’s still not official though.
Now, without wasting any more time, I will quickly jump on to the Lara vs Hurd boxing live telecast .
It’s an odd place to stage the Lara (25-2-2, 14 KOs) vs. Hurd (21-0, 15 KOs) fight, because the two fighters’ fan basses are on the East Coast rather than the West Coast.
WBA Super World junior middleweight champion Lara, 34, will be meeting up with IBF World 154 lb. champion Hurd in this important unification fight. The winner of the Lara vs. Hurd fight is expected to face WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo (30-0, 15 KO), who is interested in fighting the winner of that match. It would give Charlo, 27, the chance to add another 2 world titles to his collection. The only belt that would be out of Charlo’s grasp would be the WBO title, which is currently in the possession of Golden Boy fighter Sadam Ali.
Hurd has an excellent chance of ending Lara’s 4-year reign as the WBA 154 lb. champion. Lara hasn’t taken a lot of chances in terms of his title defenses. He’s been largely playing it safe in defending against older fighters with Showtime televising the mismatches.
