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.
Canelo would fight Floyd Mayweather, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan. Chavez lost his middleweight title to Sergio Martinez in a fight he admittedly didn’t take seriously. His career went into a tailspin as his issues of missing weight continued and his drive was questioned. Due to Chavez’s issues in the past of missing weight, a clause was inserted into the contract that Chavez will be fined $1 million per pound over the 164.5-pound limit. Canelo signed the same clause.
