'Canelo' Alvarez vs Julio Cesar Chavez: Jnr makes weight

'Canelo' Alvarez vs Julio Cesar Chavez: Jnr makes weight

Although in recent years he has been an adviser to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya and company president and chief matchmaker Eric Gomez, this was not an opponent Chargin would have taken lightly, or at all, if he could have avoided it.

The sport appears to be on the upswing two years after the Floyd Mayweather Jr. There will be a post-fight podcast immediately after the pay-per-view ends with Carlos Toro and Steven Muehlhausen. The home pay-per-view price in the U.S.is $59.95. "It really hurt it", said Alvarez, who is a heavy favorite Saturday.

"I like Canelo to win the fight but the size concerns me", Chargin said. They had the power to make this fight back then. "And, obviously, a knockout is spectacular - for the fighter, for the fans". The result is a 50-2-1 record with 32 knockouts.

Saul Alvarez takes on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in a catchweight contest at 164.5lbs, with the victor seemingly on course for a showdown with granite-fisted middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.

"I do feel that this fight is the biggest fight of my career, just because it's a big event, because of who I'm fighting and because of the opportunity".

Chavez Jr. should come into the ring the bigger man, perhaps as much as 180 pounds, with Alvarez in the 170-plus range.

Having said that, if Canelo handles the weight transition well, I believe class will tell over time and his composure under fire and uppercuts may halt some of Chavez Jr's bodywork, swinging things all the way in Alvarez's favor.

Famed Swiss climber Ueli Steck killed near Mount Everest
Two years ago, he climbed all of the Alps peaks higher than 13,100 feet in 62 days, hiking, biking and paragliding between peaks. Steck's trekking partner, Tenji Sherpa , was nursing a frostbite in his hand at the base camp during that time.

Tyson Fury: I'll beat Joshua with one arm tied behind my back
Rumours of a Joshua fight in the United States being imminent, would suggest the Wilder fight is the more likely of the two. Who knows, the victor of this bout may face World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder next.

Rangers Vs. Senators: Game 2 Open Thread
They're now 4-0 when allowing the first goal, rallying from behind twice against Boston and now twice against the Rangers. Game 2 ended in a barnburner after Jean-Gabriel Pageau's four-goal evening ended with the double overtime victor .

I'm expecting a great fight but I'm also expecting Canelo to come out victorious in a UD or a late stoppage. He's guaranteed $5 million.

The son of the legendary Mexican fight warrior exhorted a packed crowd at MGM Grand by stepping on the stage and raising his arms in triumph after weighing in at 164 pounds, a half-pound under the catch-weight limit for his Saturday showdown against countryman Canelo Alvarez.

'I think I bring more to the table than he does'.

There have been plenty of barbs traded since the fight was announced.

Moreover, Chavez would rather lose to anyone but Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs). Julio Chavez Jr weighs at 164.5lbs while Canelo Alvarez hit the scale at 164.5lbs.

Alvarez, 26, defeated Miguel Cotto in 2015 to capture the WBC middleweight title, but relinquished the belt instead of fighting Gennady Golovkin. Forbes' experts gave their predictions and also have Alvarez winning, and CBS Sports has him beating Julio Cesar Chavez by decision. Who will prevail, the younger redheaded Mexican who worked his way up the ranks starting at age 15, or the son of the most beloved boxer in Mexican history who is perceived to have grown up with every advantage? "I feel great. I can get to 160 pounds again if I needed to".

"I've seen the response from the people here and in Mexico", Chavez said. Will the push to beat up (and not just beat) his national rival leave him vulnerable to fight-ending shots from the biggest, strongest opponent he has ever faced? "Both of us have a lot of pressure". The million dollar trigger is sprung the moment you're over by a fraction of a pound, so if Chavez Jr.is 164.6 pounds, that's a million right there. Experts are giving their opinion on who is going to win this mega-fight.
