LAS VEGAS — Tonight from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, one week after one of the biggest and most exciting heavyweight fights in years, two former middleweight champions from Mexico will face each other in the ring on Cinco de Mayo weekend. In the main event, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, 26, will take on Julio Cesar Chavez, 31, in a Golden Boy Promotions production that promises to be an all-action bout between two popular fighters who strongly dislike each other. There are also some big names and former champions on the undercard. Here’s what you need to know about the fight.
About the main event fighters: Canelo, the current WBO junior middleweight champion and still the lineal middleweight champion, is from Guadalajara, Mexico. He has said he has no plans to return to 154 pounds, and so he will vacate the WBO belt after the Chavez fight. Canelo is trained by the father-son team of Chepo and Eddy Reynoso, and has been since he turned pro at the age of 15. His only career loss came against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September 2013, and was the highest grossing fight of all time until the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight in 2015. Canelo won the WBC middleweight title against Miguel Cotto at Mandalay Bay in November 2015, and defended it once in his crushing KO of Amir Khan a year ago. Canelo has not fought since his ninth-round KO of England’s Liam Smith on Sept. 17 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, in which he won the WBO super welterweight title. Canelo fractured his right thumb in that fight. . . . Chavez Jr., the former WBC middleweight champion, is coming off a 10-round unanimous decision victory against Dominick Britsch on Dec. 10 in Monterrey, Mexico. Chavez Jr., from Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, is the son of the greatest Mexican fighter of all time. Chavez Jr. won the WBC middleweight title on June 4, 2011 against Sebastian Zbik by majority decision. He defended the belt three times before losing the title to Sergio Martinez on Sept. 15, 2012 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. He quit on his stool in the ninth round against Andrzej Fonfara in April 2015 after taking a beat throughout the fight. For this fight, Chavez Jr., notorious for his dislike of training, has taken it seriously for the first time in a long time. He has been trained by Nacho Beristain and Memo Heredia. The catchweight for this super middleweight fight was contracted at 164.5 pounds, and both fighters would have been penalized $1 million per pound over the limit. Both weighed in Friday at 164.
