Canelo vs Chavez Jr Live Fight: Undercard fights preview

Welcome To Watch Canelo vs Chavez jr Live Online Boxing Fight Stream And News Updates 24/7

The fear here is that Lemieux (37-3, 33 KO) is being groomed to face Canelo vs Chavez Jr Live Fight z in September, rather than Alvarez facing Gennady Golovkin. That all depends on Canelo winning, of course, but there’s no doubt that making Canelo-Lemieux would require less effort and compromise than fighting Golovkin.

Lemieux can be flat-out overpowering against the right class of opponent, and Reyes (35-4, 26 KO) is in that class. It was just six months ago that Reyes was stopped by journeyman Elvin Ayala, after all, and he’s probably most famous for a 2015 loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

It’s fight week and the anticipation for the Chavez Jr. vs Canelo fight is comparable to those great fights which have taken place during this traditional 5 de Mayo weekend celebration. Cinco de Mayo is a national patriotic date and it has been celebrated with boxing for many years. Iconic fighters have fought, such as Lennox Lewis, Julian Jackson, Gerald McClellan, Azumah Nelson, etc.

The Mexican representatives have been of the highest caliber starting with Vicente Saldivar and Salvador Sanchez. Then the greatest fighter in the history of Mexico, Julio Cesar Chavez, owned the date, and later came Oscar De La Hoya, Erik Morales, Marco Antonio Barrera, and Juan Manuel Marquez. Canelo vs Chavez Jr Live

The fighter who has appeared at most 5 de Mayo fights is … Floyd Mayweather! Floyd beat De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Robert Guerrero, Marcos Maidana, and Manny Pacquiao.Some great fights have taken place: Mayweather vs. De La Hoya, De la Hoya vs. Mayorga, and even the classic Diego Corrales vs. Jose Luis Castillo!As I am flying to Sin City, I can’t help but to remember the so many great times and memories I have from many trips to Las Vegas. My first Vegas fight was when Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world. While I was studying in high school at Winchendon School in Massachusetts, my father flew me down to LV. He was waiting for me and hired a Limousine to drive to the Hilton hotel. I felt as if I was dreaming; it was one of the greatest moments in my life.

Tyson won and Don King threw a celebration party which was unbelievable! Michael Jackson, Eddie Murphy, Heather Thomas, and many other celebrities were present. Don King knew how to make things at a grand level.So, I started to go to fights in Las Vegas: the Tyson era, the Chavez era, the multiple championship cards promoted by Don King, then came Oscar De la Hoya with Top Rank and so on.

At that time, it was only Las Vegas Hilton and Caesars Palace and some other traditional hotels and casinos. I could very well describe almost every single moment in which I was amazed in this journey of getting to visit Las Vegas constantly. The lights, the shows, the Mirage, the building of new hotels, shopping, dining, and some other entertainment which we all have enjoyed one time or another and makes us smile when we watch the movie “Hangover.”

My father’s favorite restaurants were “Chin’s” at Fashion Show Mall, Kokomos at the Mirage, The Tillerman (off the strip) and the SteakHouse at Hilton. So many dear friends greeted my dad for so many years: Dr. Elias Ghanem, Dr. Jim Nave, Marc Ratner, Richard Sturm, Tony Alamo Sr., ring officials like Duane Ford, Richard Steele, Jerry Roth, Dave Moretti, Jay Nady, and so many others that I should mention, but the list would be too long.I remember when there were no cellular phones! So, all day and all night everywhere you could hear the paging system announcing names to proceed to the hotel phones. There was only one street, The Strip, so traffic could get so bad that it was common to walk long distances.

As time went by and my trips to Las Vegas increased, the unfortunate had to happen: I lost the ability to be amazed. I took everything for granted and then it all just became three to four day trips to spend inside the hotel where the fight took place without even seeing the outside, but only to drive back to the airport and go home.

Well, this time is going to be different! I am so excited to be going to the fight as a fan.Canelo vs Chavez Jr Live Stream has no championship at stake. I’m flying early to go and see the shows I have missed, to get to discover restaurants, go shopping for Legos for my son and Adidas tennis shoes for my girl.May the best man win to become a hero for Mexico and the world, and to take home the unique Huichol 5 de Mayo Belt which has captured the attention worldwide for its beauty and cultural representation. Two Mexican warriors will be fighting on a Mexican holiday in Las Vegas, while building bridges for peace with pride and honor.

By Dan Ambrose: Mexican stars Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48-1-1 34 KOs) and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) square off this Saturday night on May 6 on HBO pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. While a lot has been talked about there being a lot of pride and honor on the line for the two Mexican fighters, but more importantly than all that is the amount of pay-per-view buys the fight generates. Canelo vs Chavez Live Stream

This is a real test for boxing and for the drawing power of the 26-year-old Golden Boy Promotions star Canelo. He’s yet to prove that he’s the big PPV attraction that his promoter Oscar De La Hoya makes him out to be. De La Hoya says Canelo can carry boxing on his back for the next 10 years, and yet his last fight against Liam Smith generated only 300,000 PPV buys. Canelo-Chavez Jr. is also an odd choice because it’s arguably not a sell-able fight outside of the West coast and the Texas, New Mexico areas. Canelo-Chavez Jr. might not bring in the PPV numbers that Golden Boy Promotions is expecting it to do. There are a lot of fans who view this fight as just another money grab for Canbelo and Golden Boy where they pick a guy from the past and then fight him at a catch-weight.If Canelo vs. Chavez Jr. fight can bring in 1 million buys on HBO, it would be the first time that Canelo was able to bring the 1 million buy mark with him as the A-side fighter. He fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013 in a fight that brought in 2.2 million buys, but Canelo was the B-side. In Canelo’s fight against Miguel Cotto in 2015, it reached 900,000 buys. Cotto was the A-side fighter in that match, and Canelo hitched along as the B-side guy and not the main name.

Most casual boxing fans don’t care about how many buys a fight registers. They just want to see a good fight. Chavez Jr. might be able to give the boxing fans want they want if he can fight at the level he did in the past five years ago in 2012. That’s a long time ago though. Chavez Jr. hasn’t taken his career seriously in the sport for ages. That’s probably why he was picked out by Golden Boy for Canelo, because they’ve been very strategic/careful in who they select for their redheaded star. They obviously don’t want him to get beaten again. Canelo hasn’t been able to become a big star though because of the match-making by Golden Boy in the view of this writer. Canelo vs Chavez Live

Trainer Nacho Beristain and his fighter Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) reportedly had a small clash over Chavez Jr. wanting to move their training camp from the Otomi Ceremonial Center to Las Vegas to get ready for the Saul Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) fight on May 6. Beristain was resistant to this idea, as he wants the 30-year-old Chavez Jr. to stay at Otomi until April 29 before moving over to Las Vegas the week of the fight.

Beristain didn’t want Chavez Jr. to spoil the great training camp that they’ve had thus far. Beristain isn’t sure why Chavez Jr. suddenly wanted to move the camp over to Vegas, but he wasn’t willing to go along with the idea. Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight

Beristain says that he’s 47% certain that Chavez Jr. will win the fight against Canelo right now. He wants to finish out the training camp so that he can be more certain. Beristain sees this as a chance for Chavez Jr. to embarrass the 26-year-old Canelo in their fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight will be televised on HBO pay-per-view.

“That annoyed me a lot (that JC Jr. wanted to finish camp before), I told him I was wrong, we got in here for a month and a half and on a whim wants to ruin the job,” said Beristain to ESPN Deportes. ”I’m not playing, I’m professional. I said, ‘I’m not going to Las Vegas like this;’ he convinced himself that I’m not playing and he told me he’s fine, whatever he says,”Nacho stated. Canelo vs Chavez Live Stream

Some boxing fans might suspect that Chavez Jr. wanted to go to Las Vegas early in order to have a good time in the city. Las Vegas is a city that never sleeps. There’s always something to do in that place no matter how late.

This is good news that Beristain was able to convince Chavez Jr. to keep the camp where he wanted it to be. It’s unclear why Chavez Jr. would want to go to Vegas this early. There would be a ton of distractions for Chavez Jr. in a city like Las Vegas, and the media would be climbing all over him. With Chavez Jr. getting a flat fee for the Canelo fight, it might not be worth it for him to work hard doing all the interviews 3 weeks before the fight if it’s not going to result in his own purse increasing. If Chavez Jr. gets a percentage of the pay-per-view upside, then it would make sense a little for him to start doing frequent interviews. The Canelo vs. Chavez Jr. fight is going to do well regardless. I don’t think it needs to be sold at this point. Canelo vs Chavez Live 

The undercard for the Canelo-Chavez Jr. card is not a great one. To be sure, there are good names on the card, but the fights themselves are largely mismatches. Here’s the undercard:

David Lemieux vs. Marcos Reyes – This fight might last 3 rounds at the most before Lemieux ends it by knockout. Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight

Joseph Diaz vs. Manuel Avila – Despite Avila being unbeaten, he’s going to be destroyed by Diaz.

Lucas Matthysse vs. Emmanuel Taylor – This fight might be competitive, but only because of Matthysse having been out of the ring for an entire year.

Raul Curiel vs. TBA

“I just told him I did not agree,” said Beristain about Chavez Jr. “It’s stupid to be up to the hour and hour to go down 15 days because who knows what bug stung him and spoil everything we’ve worked,” said Beristain. Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight

Chavez Jr. still has a lot of work to do anyway before the Canelo fight. He’s the underdog, and he needs to be in the best possible shape he can be for him to be ready. It’s going to be hard enough for Chavez Jr. to shake off the largely 5 years of ring rust to be able to be competitive with Canelo.

Chavez Jr. hasn’t been a full time fighter since 2012. Even then, Chavez Jr. had stopped training hard by the time he fought Sergio Martine in September of 2012. Chavez Jr. just went through the motions in his training camp for the Sergio Martinez fight, and pretty much lost any chance he had of winning the fight by not putting in the amount of effort that he needed to. There were a lot of boxing fans that were interested in the Chavez Jr-Martinez fight, but it turned out to be a real disappointment.  Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight

Beristain says he wants to train Chavez Jr. for 6 full months regardless of what happens in the Canelo fight. He thinks he can improve Chavez Jr. if he can get him to be dedicated for six months of training. Hopefully, Chavez Jr. doesn’t disappear after he gets his big payday against Canelo. Chavez Jr. was well paid for his fight with Sergio Martinez in 2012. After that fight, Chavez Jr’s career and ambition screeched to a grinding halt for some reason. The big question is was it the money that Chavez Jr. got that took away his ambition? It would be a shame if Chavez Jr. stops fighting on a regular basis after he gets his big payday for the Canelo fight.

Porter: Chavez Jr. could be more of a challenge for Canelo than most people think

Welterweight contender Shawn “Showtime” Porter thinks that former 2 division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) could have more problems with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) than many boxing fans think he will when the two Mexican boxing warriors meet on May 6 on HBO PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.. Porter expects Chavez Jr. to be able to make the 164 ½ pound catch-weight for the fights without any problems, and then fight well enough to give Canelo problems for at least 6 rounds.

Porter still thinks Canelo will come back to win the fight in the second half of the fight, but he’s not ruling out Chavez Jr. possibly pulling it off. Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight

“It depends on the fighter,” said Shawn Porter to in talking about whether Chavez Jr. will be able to drop the weight to get down to 164 ½ pounds for his catch-weight fight against Canelo Alvarez. “When I had to fight AB [Adrien Broner] at 144, I was willing to accept that challenge. I did everything I was supposed to do. I came back to fight fresh and ready to fight. I’m very, very curious to see what Chavez Jr. can do at the catch-weight. If he’s able to maintain focus and feel good at the weight and everything that he’s supposed to do, it could be a more challenging fight for Canelo than most people think it will be,” said Porter.

Chavez Jr. is similar to Canelo with the way that he used to melt down in weight to fight against lighter guys earlier in his career to gain an advantage over them. Chvez Jr. would then rehydrate up in weight and use his size to dominate his lighter opponents. Canelo has been doing the same thing, only he’s been doing it in the junior middleweight division against selective opposition, some of which has been welterweights. Canelo never fought the really dangerous 154lb fighters like Jermall Charlo or Demetrius Andrade. Canelo vs Chavez

“I want him to do it. I think it’ll be a challenge for the first half. I think Canelo will take over. I don’t think he’ll stop Chavez Jr., but I think he’ll win the fight unanimously,” said Porter.

You have to go with Canelo Alvarez right now to win the fight because Chavez Jr. has been out of the loop for too long. He’s not been quite as inactive as James Kirkland had at the time that he was handpicked by Canelo’s promoters at Golden Boy Promotions to fight him, but he’s pretty close. Chavez Jr. has good boxing skills and punching power, but he’s just not done anything with his career since his defeat to Sergio Martinez.

One can say that Chavez Jr. has been an underachiever is putting it lightly. But if Chavez Jr. can shake off the ring rust of 5 years, he might be able to beat Canelo. If Chavez Jr. was a little younger at 26, you’d have to give him a better chance because a young fighter at that age could make up for years of inactivity to some extent. It’s a little trickier when you’re 30-years-old and arguably look a few years older than that.

“My guess is it won’t,” said Porter when asked if the drop in weight to 164.5lbs will affect Chavez Jr. “The reason is because he’s a professional. He’s been doing this for a long, long time. He’s not going to let 3, 4 or 5 lbs. stop him from achieving his goal, which is being victorious. I hope that’s his mindset,” said Porter.

The weight might not be an issue for Chavez Jr. for the Canelo fight. As Gennady Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez says, Chavez Jr. still might be a middleweight once he gets the weight off. The sad thing is Chavez Jr. will likely be lighter than Canelo for this fight. We’ve heard for the last 2 years from Canelo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya that he’s not a true middleweight and that’s  Canelo vs Chavez Live Fight why he shouldn’t have to face Golovkin. source :
