So nobody blinked and backed down, and both big fights are on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
It’s Canelo Alvarez vs. Josesito Lopez at the MGM, and a short cab ride away, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. against Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez at the Thomas & Mack Center near the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
These are both great fights, but the Chavez-Martinez fight feels more like a heated grudge match because these two combatants have taken plenty of verbal jabs at one another. Be it on HBO’s 24-7 program, or at press conferences. That makes this, the middleweight title fight between two giants of the sport, the better of the two.
