Team Lara

Erislandy Lara

"I have a ton of respect for my team because they give me all the right advice to be successful. The trust we have for one another makes for a great partnership. They know how bad I wanted this fight. Martirosyan doesn't know what he's got himself into and I will punish him on fight night."

"My strength and conditioning coach, Edward 'Jack' Jackson, has got me in tip top shape and Ronnie Shields with assistant coach Hylon Williams Sr are doing their part as well to make sure I'm 100% ready for this fight. I'm happy with my team and together we are unstoppable."

Ronnie Shields, trainer

"Lara is looking sharp right now and he's going to make a statement when he steps in the ring with Vanes. Although I think Vanes is a good fighter, Lara is on another level. We are working hard and it will show on fight night."

Luis DeCubas, manager

"Lara is in top physical and mental form for this fight. He is the best junior middleweight in the world and he'll keep proving it fight by fight. We will make a statement on HBO November 10th!"
