Chingon: Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to fight on May 6
In what might be the biggest all-Mexican fight in boxing history, Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., easily their country's most popular active boxers, will square off in a long-anticipated match on May 6, Golden Boy Promotions announced Friday.
"I'm excited to announce my fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and confirm that I will be prepared, like I've been throughout my career, to give a great fight," Alvarez said. "I want to remind you that when two Mexican fighters face off, a spectacular show is guaranteed."
Said Chavez: "I dedicate this fight to Mexico. I'm going to win, but my country will [win] too because this is the fight that boxing needs."
