Floyd Mayweather says Canelo Alvarez will beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr

Floyd Mayweather says Canelo Alvarez will beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr

Chavez Jr., on the other hand, comes in at 50-2-1 with 32 KOs, but has spent the last five years of his boxing career dealing with drug suspensions and multiple fights where he missed weight. He made a decision to become a pro boxer without any amateur experience, using his famous name to get fights and draw crowds while building an unbeaten record against inferior opponents.

"Tonight I showed I could move, I could box, I showed as a fighter I can do all things", said Canelo. "Where are you? It's on", Alvarez said before bringing Golovkin into the ring with him. Alvarez is the sport's top pay-per-view attraction, and many consider Golovkin, the reigning middleweight champion, boxing's best-pound-for-pound fighter. "It can be a big boost to my career if I can win this fight".

"If I have the opportunity to be the stronger guy in there, I'm going to use it", Chavez said.

"The Triple G side is a pleasure to work with", De La Hoya said of Golovkin's camp.

"I'm very excited", Golovkin told HBO Boxing analyst Max Kellerman.

Still to be determined is the venue, and De La Hoya insisted it could be "anywhere in the world". The Dallas Cowboys play on the road that weekend, making it an option.




"We restarted negotiating two weeks ago and it got done a few days ago", he said. He had no trouble adjusting, appearing to toy with Chavez.

It got worse for Chavez after boos rang around as the 31-year-old struggled to fight back in Nevada.

According to Compubox numbers, Alvarez landed 228 out of 606 punches (38%) Chavez Jr landed a pathetic 71 out of 302 punches (24%). All three judges scored the fight 120-108. They later showed a promotional video for the fight.

Alvarez landed 43 percent (145-of-340) of his power punches, slightly less than his 46 percent average entering the fight. "In September, it will be a different style, a big drama show". "The difference is this fight will have a lot of action". The son of the Mexican legend can take a punch and likely will take plenty to land something hard. Former middleweight world titleholder David Lemieux will take on Marcos Reyes in 163-pound catchweight co-feature and both men were on point.

The September bout will be at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds.

Moreover, little did fight fans realize that Alvarez already had his opponent lined up even while he overwhelmed countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. late Saturday in Las Vegas.
