Tonight at 10:15 pm EST on Showtime, Erislandy Lara returns in the main event of a three-fight card from San Antonio, facing Ishe Smith in a 12-round junior middleweight fight.
Lara (19-2-2, 12 KO) is expected to win, but as we mentioned earlier on the site, Smith (26-6, 12 KO) may be a tougher nut to crack than most think. The crafty veteran from Las Vegas is a former titleholder himself, and fighters with his approach have given Lara some issues in the past.
On the undercard, a couple of Mayweather Promotions prospects are in action. 31-year-old super middleweight Badou Jack (17-1-1, 11 KO) will face short notice opponent Francisco Sierra (26-7-1, 23 KO) of Mexico, and junior middleweight Chris Pearson (11-0, 9 KO) takes on Steve Martinez (15-1, 12 KO). Both fights are scheduled for 10 rounds.
