On Friday afternoon, May 5, WBO junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. weighed in ahead of their anticipated HBO pay per view showdown from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Canelo (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) and Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KO’s), both weighed in at 164 pounds, exactly half a pound under the 164.5 catch-weight limit they agreed to.
Each man looks in tremendous shape. Check below for a behind-the-scenes look at Friday’s weigh-in.
