Canelo vs. Chavez Jr. in negotiations for May 2017

UPDATE: Fight has been officially announced for May 6th

According to reports, negotiations are ongoing for a May 6th match-up between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., expected to play out on HBO Pay-Per-View.  The 2017  ‘Cinco De Mayo’ weekend showdown will likely take place at a catch-weight somewhere around 165 lbs.

Chavez Jr. is returned to the ring in early December and scored a ten round unanimous decision over Dominik Britsch in Monterrey MX.

Canelo is coming off a ninth round KO of Liam Smith in September where he claimed the WBO super welterweight title.
