IBR on The Cruelest Sport

Canelo Alvarez vs Erislandy Lara

“For years Erislandy Lara antagonized Saul Alvarez, slandered both Alvarez’ credentials and the business celebrating the superficial charms of a manufactured heartthrob. One pictures Lara watching the mania that follows Alvarez, flabbergasted at the idea that red hair, freckles, and a winning smile could be more endearing than the tribulations and sacrifices of a Cuban defector’s journey. Alvarez represented first and foremost a seven figure payday for Lara. But beyond that, beating Alvarez, sabotaging the bandwagon and hype-train, would strike a blow for men who gave up more than dessert to pursue their dreams. Last night, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Lara got his much coveted crack at the new idol, and squandered it, losing a split decision in a fight that lined his pocket while doing nothing to alleviate his grudge.”
