The HBO PPV bout between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. looks very promising to boxing fans and all parties involved. The twelve-round event presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by TECATE will take place on Saturday, May 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman and Golden Boy president Eric Gomez agreed to a catchweight comfortable for both fighters. But there's a $1 million fine for each fraction of a pound over the catchweight written into the contract of both boxers by the Nevada Athletic Commission. At today's weigh-in, officials will be keeping a close eye on things. All the bad blood, trash talk and bragging rights between Canelo and Julio Cesar should make this one of the biggest Mexican fights of all-time.

Alvarez believes he can represent the country better than his opponent

Canelo is the favorite with boxing fans and he's going to be stepping up almost two weight classes to confront a bigger man. During his career, the 26-year-old has been disciplined, focused and a good role model for the sport. Alvarez has wins over top fighters like Miguel Cotto, Erislandy Lara and Austin Trout. His only loss was against Mayweather in 2013, but Canelo has been 6-0 since that time, becoming the sport's biggest draw, according to Bloody Elbow. He has a lot of power in both hands and avoids getting hit with his defensive movement -- experts think he will be victorious, with his superior boxing skills.

Big opportunity for Chavez to take this fight seriously

He is the underdog, and has been inside the ring just three times over the last two years.

Julio made a comeback after losing the middleweight belt against Sergio Martinez in 2012. This could be Cesar's last chance to get big-money fights -- he can't continue to disrespect the public and the sport. The LA Times reported that Chavez has been working with legendary trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain -- who said that his fighter is in good shape and weights 167 pounds at this point.

Chavez has a two inch reach advantage and he's four inches taller, but Canelo is five years younger and has been more active inside the ring. It is a non-title fight. Whoever comes out on top will most likely face middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in a super fight.
