    The only highlight was the announcement of the GGG fight :/

    • blackbird014

      Well, Chavez jr has not great skills but he is strong physically. The catch weight removed all his power. Was a sparring session. Jr can fight at super middleweight if he trains hard but I think he is not interested.
      I also liked the last minutes of the video:-)
      I am a bit confused by Canelo. He looked like Tyson: what has he done? Hope he will be at middleweight against Golovkin. Honestly I think that the biggest fight was against Jacobs but was not well marketed and Canelo has a lot to proof as middleweight, but he looks strong fast and confident. The uppercut can be effective against Golovkin but I think that ggg is the best man even if the hair are getting grey and Canelo is developing a bodybuilder size which could increase his power but make him vulnerable on distance.

  • Trev

    lol. Becoming like wrestling. Seems pretty obvious to me that Chavez was simply there to get paid. When he had Canelo on the ropes he barely even threw and did nothing else.
    Crock of s!!t if you ask me. Stick to Heavyweight boxing. At least in that division you know they almost all carry power!

  • Joshua Dougherty

    Worthless fight. The Matthysse and Lemieux undercards were better. Seemed like Chavez wasn’t even trying to win, just get through the 12 on his feet.

    @ATBF: Dear host could you be so kind to post a video of this fight again. Thank you

  • Mattsnow

    Lacklustre showing from Chavez, to say the least. He didn’t want to fight. Poor shadow of his father. I don’t see where he’ll go from here, or who’s gonna pay to see him fight.

    • tango2042

      Mattsnow: Probably his last good fight since he is an scam

  • Mattsnow

    Main Event Purses: Alvarez $5,000,000, Chavez $3,000,000. I think Chavez deserves 3$ lol

    • tango2042

      Mattsnow: Thank you for your info since I was wondering how much Chavez got from this fight. Sorry but I don’t think Chavez deserves that kind of money just for getting into the ring and do nothing at all. It was a shame for him and Chavez’s family.

    • Olivier Veillette

      3M$, that’s not a lot considering how much his team and camp must have cost. This was certainly Chavez’ last paycheck.

  • tango2042

    Two boxers from different leagues. The people seating there just paid for a good level sparring session since it was the fight of only one man and a very easy one to score. The bigger guy in the ring was overwhelmed an unable to fight at all at short and long distance. Alvarez gave Chavez all the opportunities required to do a better fight but he was always in the shadow. In favor of Chavez I can say only that he was able to reach the end of the fight surviving each of the punches, all power ones including the jabs, connected with extreme accuracy by Alvarez.

  • DudandDol

    If Canelo cannot knockout a sitting duck then he is going to be in big trouble against Golovkin

    • Olivier Veillette

      It takes two to tango. Chavez wasn’t willing to engage so he focused mainly on his defense just to make it through the 12 rounds. Also, why would Alvarez take any more risk when he can win that easily? Okay, it made a very boring fight, but he stepped into the ring knowing a bigger challenge was already set for him in September. I think so far in his career Canelo has faced better opposition than Golovkin. Though call to make.

      • Fogg

        Let’s see about that in September, he never faced someone with this kind of thudding power. He won’t be able to evade GGG like Jacobs did. This is going to be a war, and the guy with the bigger guns on the night is going to win. It goes without saying that whoever wins is going to be the superstar of the sport. The true replacement for Tyson, Pac in terms of fan affection and entertainment

        • Olivier Veillette

          Keep talking like that my friend, I’m thrilled!!

  • Ruben Antonio Alvarez

    Chavez did not have the heart for this fight. Very disappointed! Chavez has had some good fights but he seemed overwhelmed by the skill and speed of Canelo. GGG will give him a better fight, but Canelo has another gear that he did not even had to use against Chavez. Canelo and GGG have similar skills, so I have to take the younger man.

    • Olivier Veillette

      … and he’s your cousin? ;)

      • Ruben Antonio Alvarez

        Well, he is actually my son, but that’s besides the point.
