    "Cinco de Mayo" weekend built to a peak this past Saturday night in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena as Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr finally came together for their long awaited fight.

    The two biggest names in Mexican boxing spent the first round going through a feeling out process but by round two Alvarez was the confident aggressor. Round three would see Chavez Jr’s output of punches drop as Alvarez continued to attack. Chavez Jr ended the third bleeding from the nose and mouth area. Though Chavez Jr stayed on his feet and never appeared to be shook up, Alvarez operated methodically and with no worries as he piled up the rounds. Chavez Jr was able to put together only brief moments of aggression but Alvarez was never threatened and he closed the fight out strong, dominating the final rounds. In the end the judges had the official scores 120-108, 120-108 ,120-108 for Alvarez in a fight with little drama.

    The co-feature saw Canada’s hard hitting middleweight David Lemieux face Mexico’s Marco Reyes in a bout that went the ten round distance. Lemieux looked powerful with his punches as expected, but Reyes worked through the punches and survived a cut to force Lemieux the distance.

    The second fight of the evening saw Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse return after a layoff of over a year to stop American Emmanuel Taylor in the fifth round. Matthysse was fighting his first fight at 147 pounds and he did not show much in the way of ring rust. Matthysse shook up Taylor in the first few rounds and he sent Taylor to the canvas in round three. Matthysse continued his efficient work until the fifth when the ref called the fight when Taylor got up off the canvas on shaky legs. Matthysse notches win number 38 for his career.

    The broadcast opened with 10-round featherweight action between undefeated fighters as Joseph Diaz (23-0) faced Manuel Avila (22-0). "Jojo" Diaz outclassed Avila, winning on points by a wide margin.

    TSS had a slew of coverage live at the event. Check back later for more from "Cinco De Mayo" weekend.

    YIKES. Glad I didnt buy this .

    Chavez made the weight, but he had absolutely NOTHING left. It was a despicable effort.

    That was the worst attempt in a fight that I can remember, Chavez barely even through any punches and his reactions were very delayed. You could tell his brain was struggling to process and his body was further behind, his organs were not operating properly either. This kinda thing is unsafe and unhealthy and could ruin a fighter's life, health wise.
    Chavez knew he had nothing so he chose just to survive and keep away. He knew when he signed the dotted line, he figured for 6 million sure he will come in dead drained and stagger around the ring like a zombie, although I have never seen a zombie back pedaling for ten rounds looking to stay away from any contact.

    As for Canelo, he is over hyping himself big time. Sure his punches like fast and swift, though he is not a power puncher, just an accumulation puncher, against smaller guys, or old guys, or drained guys.

    This fight hurts Canelo's preparation with GGG, it is like being an all state basketball player as a senior in high school and going to the playground to beat up on 8th graders, you decline not progress for the next challenge.

    GGG is visibly taller than Canelo and Canelo got little man syndrome when he entered the ring.

    Canelo is in big trouble as GGG will have him going backward all night reacting and wearing down quickly.

    I went to the theater and plucked down a few less dollars than the ppv.

    Definitely am disappointed in the effort of Chavez. He clearly looked drawn. His win was making weight and going the distance not quitting. Going the distance seemed to be his entire focus. He never had the intention of digging down and trying to win this fight. This basically turned into a glorified 12 round sparring session for Canelo.

    I don't think this hurt Canelo's preparation for GGG. Canelo has been fighting a long time and will have four months to get fully ready for GGG. Canelo has seen all sorts of styles and should be much better prepared for GGG than he was say a few years ago when he fought Mayweather and fought the wrong style fight.

    We know have four months of talk and speculation as to how the fight plays out. This will be fun.

    You can't take batting practice for 12 months then fight a killer like GGG and not take a few rounds or more to adjust.

    Canelo did not fight the wrong fight against Floyd, he got white washed with ease.

    Floyd put him on the back foot and showed he couldnt counter a quicker, craftier guy, then Floyd made him

    come forward and show he can not punch and move his feet at the same time.

    If GGG fights Canelo like he did DL then it will be a one sided hammering jab at distance all night with Canelo not being able to produce much offense.

    Or GGG can keep pushing Canelo back as he rips him with body and head shots all night.

    GGG will have the height advantage, reach advantage, power advantage.

    Canelo does look good and quick with his shots and combinations, but he has to take something off of them

    to deliver them that quickly. Just look, Canelo was NOT able to hurt an old waaaay past prime Cotto, Floyd

    hurt and staggered Cotto at least 3 times 5 years ago, Canelo took forever to get L Smith out of there, who

    was landing lots of shots on Canelo, Khan was winning every round until finally getting his glass chin cracked

    6 rounds later.

    I like Canelo, he is usually exciting to watch, but many are blinded and do not see his obvious faults.


    GGG fighting a taller and much bigger Jacobs, about 188lbs, who had a longer reach and was faster and quicker will prepare him for the Canelo fight. It will be very shocking how easy GGG beats Canelo.

    Also, the lay offs will actually help GGG as he is 35 years old now, although accustomed to fighting 4x a year to stay sharp, that is a young mans game, at 35 the rest will benefit him.
