Chavez Jr. Escapes Under GGG vs. Canelo
"Bombs Away" Announcement
 
By William Trillo

The best thing that happened to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on Saturday night was the announcement that Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin is officially signed and set for September 16th. If not for that, Chavez Jr. would have been sliced up like a Carne Asada at a Mexican Delicatessen.

When the lone highlight of your weekend is the fact that you finally made the contracted weight after years of failed attempts you can go ahead and assume you suck, as does your entire career.

  Canelo Schools Chavez Jr. 12 Rounds To 0 As Expected; Overshadowed By "Done Deal" With Golovkin In Sept.  
Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KO's)  did what was expected which was show up against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KO's). That's all Canelo needed to do as he easily outboxed Chavez in every single round. There's really nothing more to say about this fight, because if you expected anything different then you are the reason why the odds dropped to 3-to-1 on fight night based on Chavez making weight. All scores read 120-108.

However, this fight was really just a setup for what was said to be a "signed" and "done deal" for this September: Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin. There was a video on the big screen above the ring, even a ring walk entrance for Golovkin as this was the intended Main Event showcase of the night. Both men shook hands, wished each other "good luck", and assured that the fight is on for later this year.

By William Trillo
It's been a while since I got to visit my old haunt on my drive to Las Vegas but with the big show ahead I knew it was time to pay a visit to my old friend Elvis to get his thoughts on the upcoming battle.

For the cost of just two bits Elvis simply stated, " It's best to keep your mouth shut than end up looking like a fool. Always let your actions do your talking for you."

Fair enough.
