On May 6, Mexican superstars Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will return to the ring against each other at a location to be determined.

The two men are meeting at a catch weight of 164.5 pounds, with Alvarez rising from the junior middleweight class, where he holds the WBO title, and Chavez coming down in weight. Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) is expected to be the clear favorite over Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KO’s), who last fought under 167 pounds in Sept. of 2012 when he lostĀ a unanimous decision to then-champion Sergio Martinez.
