Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. – Boxer: Airplane sized 6’0″ middleweight that comes into the ring around 180 Lbs. Big puncher with every weapon in the book. Not a speed demon but places punches accurately.Throws combinations with conviction always looking to land his heavy left hook. Debilitating body puncher that tries to cut his man in half with uppercuts and hooks. Dogged competitor that applies relentless pressure from bell-to-bell. Underrated boxer and defender with the ability to cut off the ring while slipping and blocking shots effectively. Granite chin at middleweight. Can get a bit wild in the ring and can burn himself out loading up punches. Does not make much use of his height with a pecking jab. Has been much more inactive than Canelo in recent years. Dedication outside the ring is questionable. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Canelo Alvarez Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds with the Over at -230 ($100 bet pays out $143) at BOVADA Casino

Canelo Alvarez – Boxer: The stocky 5’8″ Alvarez is an aggressive and intelligent boxer/puncher with a deadly body attack. Alvarez, 26, throws whistling combinations with excellent power, especially in the left hook. Alvarez has a fast and accurate jab that he fires from an air-tight guard. Alvarez is a skilled counterpuncher with oustanding timing and accuracy. Alvarez is a slick target with excellent ring vision and subtle side-to-side head movement. The bull-necked Canelo has never been off his feet and has displayed a solid chin throughout his career. On the downside, Canelo has good but not great athleticism and he must be set to punch. Alvarez’s aggressive style causes him to catch heavy leather while trading. Canelo fights in explosive bursts but can be inactive for long stretches. Average footspeed.

ESPN2 News Bottom Line: Chavez Jr. will try to lure Canelo into a war and for the most part the red headed killer will oblige him. Chavez Jr. will have his moments in the trenches but the sharp punching and speed of Canelo will give him the edge. Canelo will box in spots and outslick Chavez Jr. with his defense just enough to outpoint the relentless monster coming at him. Both men are heavy hitters but with granite chins and Mexican pride on both sides this one will go the distance.  Chavez Jr. will fight his guts and come up short on the cards 116-112.
