Lara has the best poker face in the game. He hides being hurt very well.

Hurd is not without skill. He throws that right from all odd angles, and he gets his combinations off well - great sense of timing.  When he fights Jermell heís going to have to work his jab much more. I donít think he can just stand in there with Jermellís power like heís done in this and previous fights.  

Hatís off to Lara for hanging and banging all the way.  I thought the ref let him off the hook after the knockdown.  Hurd had him buzzed and Lara played it perfectly and bought time when Bayless asked him to put his hands up.
He definitely has skill, I didn't mean to insinuate that, however he eats a lot of clean punches, his size and strength at 54 allows him to absorb that, but at middleweight and above he'll have to adjust and improve.

Lara put forth a great effort against Hurd.  His prior fights may not have been enjoyable to a good many but this one was a damn good one.  Age probably played a factor in Lara not moving so much in an effort to conserve energy against a big, young relentless dude like Hurd that he flat out could not hurt.  The size disparity was pretty significant but Lara would sit not the pocket none to nose with that guy and fight.  Shyt was more than respectable imo.

He's right on both points though. I tried plenty of times to watch a Lara fight. This dude should not be on TV unless the networks are trying to put viewers to sleep. But last Saturday's fight was entertaining and both fighters showed heart and fought courageously. I still won't watch another Lara fight live though unless I'm pretty sure he's gonna get beat up.

Its Hard to believe that Hurd was only 1 lb more than Lara on the day of the fight. He was massive, and its not like Lara is a small Jr middle. I'd imagine Hurd won't stay at 54 for too much longer

Yeah Lara looked like a few weight classes below Hurd.
