Cuban Erislandy Lara thrashes Ramon Alvarez to claim WBA title

August 31, 2019: Minneapolis, USA
The title was only on the line for Erislandy Lara. Ramon Alvarez missed weight by more than four pounds and certainly fought like someone out of shape. The Cubans sharp
punching nearly sent Alvarez tumbling through the ropes after a series of precise shots in the second round. Alvarez beat the count, only for Lara to unload on him until the
ref jumped in and stopped the fight.
