How to stream Erislandy Lara vs. Ramon Alvarez

Five years ago, Erislandy Lara believed he should have been awarded the biggest victory of his career. He wasn’t. Despite giving Canelo Alvarez one of the toughest tests of his career and despite the fact Lara thought he had won the fight, the judges awarded a split decision to Alvarez. On Saturday, though, Lara will get some measure of redemption. That’s because he’s facing Canelo’s brother, Ramon Alvarez, in a fight that will be live streamed on Fox.

Yes, Lara probably won’t ever get another chance to beat Canelo Alvarez, one of the best fighters in the world. So, he’ll have to settle for his older (and less talented) brother.

“The fight with Canelo was a long time ago,” Lara said, via Yahoo Sports, “so now I’m just looking forward and toward being in bigger fights.”

Lara has already been in plenty of them. But now the 36-year-old 154-pound junior middleweight gets a national TV outlet to try to impress and begin what could be the final stretch of a standout pro career.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Lara vs. Alvarez fight.

1/11 Who is the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world?

The ranking of The Independent’s 10 best male boxers on the planet. Take a look through to see who comes out on top.


2/11 10. Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2)

The Filipino looked sensational to outpoint Keith Thurman, flooring the American and rolling back the years at 40 years old to confirm himself as the No 3 welterweight in the world at worst. Considering the illustrious names on his resume, a place inside the top 10 pound-for-pound list and a world class win this year confirms his place here.


3/11 9. Juan Francisco Estrada (39-3-0)

The two-weight world champion grabbed the lineal super flyweight title against Sor Rungvisai to snatch his pound-for-pound status and the WBC gold.

4/11 8. Mikey Garcia (39-1-0)

Despite coming up short against Errol Spence in their welterweight bout, Garcia is still a modern great as a four-weight world champion.

6/11 6. Errol Spence (25-0-0)

After his impressive win over Garcia in which he didn’t drop a round, Spence added another big name to his record. Shawn Porter will be next, to unify the belts and perhaps further close the gap between himself and rival Terence Crawford in the P4P standings.
