Lara To Return To The Ring In March
Erislandy Lara’s next fight has been set.
Lara will reportedly fight WBA “Regular” super welterweight champion Brian Castano on March 2. The fight is scheduled to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The fight will be Lara’s first in 10 with his last fight being a loss to Jarrett Hurd. Lara lost his WBA “Super” title when he lost a split decision, allowing Hurd to unify the WBA and IBF titles at 154 pounds.
Castano has held his version of the WBA title since 2017, making two successful title defenses. Castano, a native of Argentina, spent his last two fights in France, defeating Michel Soro and Cedric Vitu between 2017 and 2018. It will be Castano’s first fight in the United States since 2016.
