How much money did they get for their honor?
Almost a million each
Who gave this 3 stars?
Wasn’t even a fight.
Chavez fought more then 100 fights – never saw him have a fight like this – at the end of his stay! got his butt kicked and fought back!
Alvarado saying after the fight ‘I wasn’t ready’ pisses me off. He told numerous times in the pre fight build-up that the legal accusations against him didn’t affect him and he said he never missed a day of training. This makes me unlike a fighter. Kudos to Rios.
