Canelo vs JCC Jr Heating Up Vegas – Las Vegas is set for “Cinco de Mayo” weekend and no place will have more attention on it than the T-Mobile Arena where Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr meet in a clash between long-time Mexican rivals.
The two men came up together and both came onto the world scene around the same time and with a similar amount of hype. The last few years have seen Alvarez take his career to the top of boxing while Chavez Jr saw his rise stall due to inactivity and personal problems. Still, the fight is getting unprecedented attention south of the border and HBO pay-per-view is hoping for over 1 million sales.
