The fight, announced in January, has sold out the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for May 6th and has drummed up enough interest to also sell out a number of closed circuit venues in Sin City as well prompting Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarez's promoter, to distribute the HBO Pay-Per-View event on movie screens across the country.

This Canelo vs Chavez Jr documentary before the fight sums up what it means to both guys excellently. Golden Boy wants to showcase the former IBF middleweight champion to generate buzz for a possible showdown with Canelo.

In Mexico, Chavez's sparring partner Marco Reyes passed word to his veteran promoter Don Chargin that Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KOs) has transformed under new trainer Nacho Beristain.

"[Reyes] says [Chavez] looks fantastic. He says Chavez is down [close to] the weight already, that his body looks completely different, that he's working very hard", Chargin said. The 26-year-old Mexican superstar is ranked as the #1 pound-for-pound fighter by BoxRec and the #8 overall fighter according to Ring Magazine.

Alvarez didn't express any sign of distress at the report.

"Well, after what I do May 6th, I'm gonna put myself in a position where everybody's gonna wanna see Canelo-Lemieux", Lemieux said during a conference call earlier this week. "And so the public can get a great fight". I'm ready for anything.

The next one will be held held at Mission Aviation Fellowship in Nampa on April 24; it also starts in the evening at 6:30 p.m. The town hall was the first event of its kind to be held this year among Idaho's all-Republican congressional delegation.

Canelo appears to be a slight favorite starting out but make no mistake, this is a 50/50 fight.

Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez, said Chavez's commitment to conditioning makes the buildup to May 6 "nerve-racking", since De La Hoya said he's planned to restart negotiations with Gennady Golovkin's promoter May 7 for a September mega-fight. "We are fully confident that Canelo will prevail in his appeal and be cleared - just as Golden Boy was - forcing All Star Boxing to scramble for relevance in some other way". Golovkin noted as much to reporters, saying he expects Chavez to go two or maybe three rounds before he's too weak to pose much of a threat.

"I'm excited for May 6 because we've never seen a fight that's tiresome or boring with two Mexican fighters". Golovkin is brute strength. "So fights like this help Canelo". He's durable. He can take a punch.

"At this weight I am not going to lose power", Alvarez stated before he began a light workout of shadowboxing, mitt work, some heavy bag and stretching. Chavez Jr. hasn't seemed too interested in boxing since losing his title bout against Martinez but whoever wins this fight will be highly celebrated in Mexico and considered the greatest active Mexican boxer.

"These types of fights bring out the best in you", De La Hoya said. When looking to place a bet, check out the SBR rating guide of best betting sites for a list of reputable sportsbooks, then take a gander at the odds for this bout; at press time, Canelo is favored as high as -800 on the moneyline, while Chavez is available at +565.

Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. is a 12-round fight presented by Golden BoyPromotions and sponsored by Tecate, BORN BOLD, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Adriana's Insurance and Interjet. That's going to be interesting to see how that pans out in the ring.
