Lara Asks To Enter VADA 365 Testing For WBA
After leaving the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program, Erislandy Lara has requested to join the WBA’s Fair Boxing Program, which includes VADA’s 365 testing.
Following confusion from Lara and his manager, Luis DeCubas Jr., over a press release from the WBC this week that indicated their program, DeCubas told Boxing Scene that: “Lara has asked VADA to sign him up for 365 testing through the WBA’s Fair Boxing Program.
While the WBC claimed Lara left the program, they had ordered the Cuban former champion to a final eliminator against Julian Williams.
This would be declined by Lara, who has agreed to fight the WBA “regular” junior middleweight champion Brian Castano, who is widely regarded as a rising star in the weight class.
