WBA Super Welterweight Champion Erislandy ďThe American DreamĒ Lara shared his insights from training camp and discussed his upcoming battle against Greg Vendetti that headlines FOX PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes this Saturday, August 29 from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Once the longest-reigning titleholder in the stacked 154-pound division, Lara returns to the ring after capturing the WBA title last August on FOX with a TKO victory over Ramon Alvarez.

Here is what Lara had to say about his matchup this Saturday and more, from training camp in Las Vegas:

On his recent training camp with coach Ismael Salas:

ďCoach Salas and I have been working harmoniously together in Las Vegas, where Iíve been getting great sparring with top level guys. There are a lot of good fighters in Las Vegas that bring a lot of experience to my sparring sessions. My timing is right on point and Iím going to be very sharp in this fight.Ē

On making his 2020 ring return on FOX:

ďItís been way to long for me to be out of the ring. Now that itís finally coming to that point where Iíll be fighting, Iím extremely excited. FOX is the most viewed television network in boxing, and Iím honored to be fighting on their network once again. The fan support that I get after fighting on FOX is incredible. Everyone should be tuning in because Iím going to put on a great show for everyone watching.Ē

On his upcoming matchup with Greg Vendetti:

ďJust like everyone that I step in the ring with, they all come to dethrone me, and Vendetti will be no different. Heís coming into this fight with nothing to lose and that can be a dangerous situation, because heís going to be in the best shape of his life. Iím not looking past him and if I get him hurt at any time in the fight, Iím going for the finish. I will end this fight early if I see blood.Ē

On what a win could lead to for his next fight:

ďA victory puts me in line to fight the Charlo vs. Rosario winner, if thatís the direction my team wants to go. The goal for me is to unify the titles and become the undisputed champion of the 154-pound division. My body feels good and I feel Iím still the best fighter at super welterweight. Saturday night is another chance for me to show why.Ē
