One of boxing’s best technicians will display his wares on Premier Boxing Champions’ next ESPN card.
Erislandy Lara (21-2-2, 12 KOs) will put his WBA super welterweight world title on the line against Jan Zaveck (35-3, 19 KOs) Nov. 25 at Hialeah Park Casino in Miami. The card will be broadcast live in the U.S. via PBC on ESPN.
“I'm very excited to be defending my title in my hometown of Miami,” said Lara. “Getting in the ring with a former world champion and an experienced fighter like Jan Zaveck is something I'm very much looking forward to. On Nov. 25 I will put on a show for all my fans and especially all my Cuban fans watching on ESPN.”
Lara, 32, last saw in action in a one-sided thumping of Delvin Rodriguez on June 12.
“I am aware that this will be one of the toughest fights of my career,” said Zaveck. “I respect Lara and I will prove that I am on the same level. I am aware that I am the underdog and that I am coming into Lara's 'living room.' I am coming to Miami to chase my dreams and surprise everybody.”
