He defended his WBA, IBO super welterweight world titles in a night where two other title fights joined in the headline, Jermell Charlo knocked out Erickson Lubin in the first round while IBF junior middleweight world champion Jarrett Hurd stopped former beltholder Austin Trout in the tenth round, all televised on showtime.

His next fight though Uncertain will either be any of the two winners from the two fights but he says he doesn't care who he faces next and in his bid to u if u the titles in Junior middleweight he will have just one person likely not to face him, which is WBO title holder Miguel Cotto.

"Absolutely I want to unify. That's what I'm here for - to win all the belts," Lara said "Hopefully one of these young guns will step up to the plate and fight me. I will show everybody I'm the best in the 154-pound division, and I'm here for a long time. It's very important to bring this world title back to the people of Houston. There's been a lot of tragedy in Houston, and I hope with this win it brings just a little bit of joy to my fans and people going through a hard time."

"I don't choose my fights, but I'm going to clean out the whole 154-pound division. There are a lot of young fighters now, but I'm going to just clean it out and show that I'm the best here," Lara said.
