Alvarez to take on unbeaten Golovkin

Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) had never fought above 155 pounds until he weighed in at 164 on Friday. In case you miss the fight then here we will update Canelo Alvarez vs Chavez Jr highlights video and results. Alvarez responded to a question about possibly ignoring Chavez.

LAS VEGAS Some four hours before countrymen Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez squared off in the super middleweight main event at T-Mobile Arena, thousands of fans were outside the arena in full party mode, chanting either "Canelo" or "Chavez". The two continue to fight in the middle of the ring, with Chavez allowing it to be a distance boxing match, not getting inside as many expected him to. For as long as boxing's crippling lack of organization remains, competing networks and promoters will continue to fight for their dwindling piece of the pie at the expense of the sport as a whole until necessity forces them to intervene.

"GGG, you are next my friend", he said. "The fight is done".

"I've already had several calls from around the world wanting to stage this fight", he said. "When he went to the ropes, I just didn't have the strength to go after him and do some damage", Chavez said. But in mere minutes Alvarez had the record-setting crowd of 20,510 eating out of his hand. "I've shown I can do lots of things in the ring, anything a fighter brings-I've shown I can showcase myself", said Alvarez. You saw tonight the best I tried.


"I thought what I thought it was gonna be, a one-sided fight. But, I always say, Canelo Alvarez is the best because I fight the best". Places such as Dubai and Wembley Stadium have expressed interest in hosting the fight.

De La Hoya, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions said the fight between Alvarez and Golovkin is, "signed, sealed and delivered".

Golovkin will put his WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles on the line against the WBO light-middleweight champion.

The 35-year-old from Kazakhstan fights at 160 pounds - six pounds heavier than Canelo has traditionally fought.


Almost every round started the same: Canelo Alvarez striking first with a heavy dose of power punches to the body.

The exciting spectacle felt very much like it was borrowed from the world of sports entertainment. I'm very happy, and the rivalry is going to show my skills even more. (24-0, 13KOs) won an uneventful decision victory against Manuel Avila (22-1, 8KOs). "In September, it will be a different style, a big drama show". We saw a Canelo that came forward and pressing the action for the entire fight. "This is incredible fight for everyone". I wanted to try something new, I never sit down in sparring and I didn't want to sit here.

But credit boxing on Saturday for finally being one step ahead of what's next, ready to connect the dots in a larger storyline that will end with a much-anticipated fall showdown. "It will be back and better than ever".
