Lara vs Foreman – PBC on Spike TV Fri Jan 13 – The Premier Boxing Champions kick off their 2017 calendar with a double-header weekend and the action starts on Friday in South Florida.
The featured fight sees WBA world 154-pound champion Erislandy Lara defending his belt against the challenge of veteran Yuri Foreman. The fight is considered a bit of a “comeback” for both fighters, as the once popular Foreman has logged just two fights since 2013 and Lara is coming off a 2016 that saw him take to the ring just once.
The co-feature sees former WBC 168-pound world titleholder Anthony Dirrell facing Hungary’s Norbert Nemesapati in a 10 round bout. Dirrell has won two fights in a row since losing his world title back in April of 2015 at the hands of Badou Jack.
