ERISLANDY LARA: HURD IS "EASY PICKINGS", CHARLO LOSES BY DECISION!
By G. Leon

"Knowing (Charlo) very well from many rounds of sparring, I think I got a pretty good gauge on what I could do and can't do with him."

GL: What did you think of Jermell Charlo's recent win? I didn't get to see the fight on Saturday night, but I heard Charlo looked really good. He's a good young fighter, a young champion coming up in boxing. I'm happy he had a great performance from what I heard. GL: With all the Charlo-Hurd talk are you concerned that you might get boxed out of a unification bout? A lot of these young guys are in a different position than me. I've earned my stripes fighting the best over the years. If I were them I wouldn't want to fight me, because none of them are going to beat me. It looks like Jarrett Hurd is the easy picking of the month. It looks like everybody wants to take a title off a guy who really didn't earn it and can't defend it. My focus is if we can get a big fight like unification, let's roll. If not I've earned this position to fight whoever my managers put in front of me.

By Scott Shaffer

According to the New Zealand site Stuff, WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker has secured a replacement opponent to save the show after original challenger Hughie Fury pulled out of the May 6th date. The new opponent, Razvan Cojanu, is light on credentials but given the situation, it is certainly forgivable. Cojanu, from Romania, is 16-2, with a modest three-fight win streak going.  In 2015, Cojanu was knocked out in the ESPN Boxcino tournament by Donovan Denis. His last bout was a decent road win over Zhi Yu Wu (7-2) in China in December.
