Mexican compatriots Saul Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. collide on Cinco de Mayo weekend in a highly anticipated fight that turns into a one-sided sparring session. Alvarez hits Chavez seemingly at will as Chavez refuses to take any chances. After twelve rounds of following Chavez around and hitting him with combinations, Alvarez wins the bout by a shutout on all three scorecards. The most interesting moment comes when Gennady Golovkin enters the ring after the bout to confirm that he will face Alvarez in the fall.

An interesting yet uncalled for fight. Money is the only real driver here.

Depending on how Chavez Jr prepares for this fight, we could have either a competitive fight, or an absolute annihilation of Chavez Jr by Canelo. Money is on canelo even if the fight gets to be competitive.

Worth to watch, but don't set your expectations very high on this one.

Prediction,

I don't think this is the best match up in boxing, I think it should be good yo watch while it lasts, and any high profile fight like this, is a big deal, but I think Julio Cesar Chavez, has a reputation which based very much off his dad, who is known to have been a boxing legend, I think he is overrated, I don't think he has been impressive enough since losing very badly and disappointingly to Fonfara, and I don't think he has what it takes to even give Canelo a minor struggle in knowing how to make the fight swing massively in his favour.

Canelo, in my opinion, is a top 10 fighter, is underrated, and doesn't get appreciated as a great fighter and a warrior because the Golovkin fight hasn't happened, and doesn't look like it is going to happen anytime soon.

I think Saul Alvarez will win this fight with ease, it might even be a bit of a mismatch, I think Chavez is tough, and can withstand Alvarez's power for a few rounds, but I think Alvarez will domiante, beatdown, and stop Chavez in five rounds.

Hopefully, Golovkin vs Alvarez can be arranged.

Canelo by UD in a somewhat competitive (but not really close) fight.

Second prediction,

I think if Chavez turns up in shape, having taken the fight seriously, which I thinknhe definitely has, then he can rise to the occasion, and give Canelo some problems, I can see the fight going the distance, Chavez could even pull off the upset, but I don't predict him to.

I think Canelo will get the decision, in a cose fight which could go either way, Canelo wins, 115-113, 115-113, and 118-110.

GGG showdown was the highlight of this fight.

I thought this was an absolutely fantastic performance from Saul Alvarez, he wasn't really challenged, he was fighting a bigger guy, a much bigger guy, which is why he wasn't able to stop him I think really, but Alvarez boxed very well indeed. Chavez Jr was disappointing, he was tough, he took the punches well, but he didn't want it enough in the end, and he wasn't prepared to take the risks, 90% of the people who criticise don't have the balls to go near a boxing ring, he didn't 'let everyone down', it is horrible when you know you are not good enough, you know the other guy is just trying to set you up, but really, that was crunch time, there were a lot of Mexican fans who had paid, travelled to watch what had promised to be a great night of all Mexican boxing, and they did not get their money's worth, Chavez Jr did not go out on his shield, his trainer, was very disappointing as well. Chavez has the reach, he's never used it, he's never really been consistent, you can't erase that with one good training camp, it just isn't possible, his game plan wasn't sensible I don't think, he seemed to be cautious for most of the fight, but when Canelo cut down the range, walked him down, he couldn't defend himself from many shots thrown by Alvarez, so he had the downside of a stereotypical Mexican fighter who just fights fire with fire, but he was not letting the punches go, he wasn't doing enough to give himself a chance of having the success he needed to have, the downside of a negative, smart, initiative fighter, he didn't show that fantastic, all heart brawling style that the fans wanted to see, and he didn't have the ring craft, hadn't done the revision, in order to frustrate Canelo, make the technicality of the fight work in his favour, he was lacking offensively and defensively.

I thought Chavez started quite sensibly, he certainly wasn't winning the rounds, but he seemed to me to have a lot in the locker, he wasn't giving Canelo the easy target of his chin, he was moving, his focus looked good, and he looked in great shape, we know he trained hard, it was round 5, when it became frustrating to watch for me, because when you've lost every round, and you are taking that kind of restricted, held back approach, you have to be taking something out of the opponent, not just being there for the sake of not getting knocked out, and he just didn't change anything until round 9 when he was an absolute street behind, that was the only round you could have given him, I didn't even think he did enough to take that round, but back to the point, using those kind of tactics, where you may even somewhat surrender some early rounds, that is a risky strategy, and when your opponent controls the pace, dictates everything, and you can't be on the scorecards after 4 rounds, you have a real problem.

I think Canelo did great here, his variety was fantastic, his work ethic was perfect, he was defensive, to a degree, to the right degree, he didn't go the extra mile for defence against a guy who couldn't hurt him, but he was always able to avoid shots from Chavez if it was necessary, and the maturity was good that we saw from Canelo, in the late rounds, when he was on the ropes, he didn't always just fire blistering combinations and punch off the ropes straight away, he knew he wasn't the one with the hill to climb, and there was no reason why patience wasn't completely necessary, and just wait for the other guy to try and take a chance, and he was always ready to make him pay if Chavez did really take a risk, pull the trigger. I think ultimately, when a guy fights a guy who is much naturally bigger than him, a guy with 4 inches height on him, 2-3 inches reach on him, a son of a legend, arguable the greatest Mexican boxer who has ever lived, a guy with a record of 50-2-1, and he just schooled him throughout, controlled, dominated, punished Chavez Jr, lost a less than likely maximum of 1 loose round, and finished strong, Alvarez was bound to tire to an extent in the mid to late rounds, and I think me might have done in rounds 7-9, just a bit, but he might have still won all these rounds, and he recovered, had a very strong finish, and he was even boxing within himself really, he had more rounds in the tank after the last. It was great that when we thought the fans would go home disappointed, they didn't, because they had heard the news that Canelo and Golovkin would fight, that had to have been the highlight of the evening for boxing enthusiasts. I think after this fight, it is going to be hard for him to come back, get another big opportunity any time soon, I think he should ponder his career, and his commitment, dedication to the sport of boxing.
