Erislandy Lara has been in a slump, at least by his standards, with a draw and a loss in his last two bouts. Last time out Lara faced Brian Carlos Castano at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 2, 2019. Lara and Castano fought to a split decision draw in a 12-round bout.
Prior to that on April 7, 2018 Lara faced Jarrett Hurd at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. At stake was the World Boxing Associaiton, International Boxing Federation, and International Boxing Organization world super welterweight titles. Lara suffered a tough 12 round split decision loss as he went down in the 12th round. He also had his eye cut in the 12th round as well.
Ramon Alvarez last stepped into the ring on April 6, 2019 when he faced Jose Carlos Paz at Arena Sonora, Hermosillo. Alvarez scored a 10-round split decision win. It was a nice bounce back following his technical knockout loss to Brandon Rios on November 17, 2018.
