Erislandy Lara vs. Gary O'Sullivan Prediction

Lara comes into the bout 28-3, a fairly respectable account especially when you compare who's who of the division passing through the pearly whites of his dominion over the course of his subsequent career. O'Sullivan is coming into the contest with a more modest 31-4, really indicating his long and tumultuous journey for greatness, but salted nonetheless through his repeated shortcomings and obligatory failures. 

These two boomers will once again try their luck at sweet science immortality come Saturday, where only one dinosaur can emerge from the fray intact and on track. Looking at the more technical aspect of the twos game you see some rather frightening disparities. Lara has only lost to the absolute pinnacle of his respective division, with names like Canelo and Jarrett Hurd being cataclysmic as they are shocking to anyone that hears the names ring true. O'Sullivan is losing to more relegated competition, with his defeats showing a dramatically relaxed strength of schedule in the form of Billy Joe Saunders and David Lemieux, who most recently got dog walked by David Benevidez for some perspective.

I think the way to approach this fight for financial gain is simple. Lara is going to pressure O'Sullivan out the gates, and due to that onslaught, I see him getting out of the match relatively soon after because of his historic lack of durability and suspect striking defense. Due to both of the geezers' old age, look for either or to push the pace and the finish, where Lara undoubtedly secures the victory due to his Cuban medalling background and slightly less washed candor. If there was ever an indication of what a 20 to 1 favorite represents, is that violence will come early and come often.
