On Saturday night, May 6, Mexican superstar and junior middleweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez dominated an outmatched former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. over twelve one-sided rounds. Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KO’s) was far too strong, poised, and precise throughout their HBO pay per view matchup inside of the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

With over 20,500 partisans in attendance for another wild Cinco De Mayo weekend, Alvarez proved himself to be far superior in every category, often tagging Chavez with sharp blows. Following twelve rounds, scores of 120-108 were read across the board for the Jalisco-born fighter, who continues to cement himself as the sport’s biggest star.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) got off to a cautious start through three rounds, but was able to register a knockdown of Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO’s) in the fourth round courtesy of a pair of right hands. Jacobs wasn’t rattled however, as he picked himself up and fought courageously the rest of the match, often troubling Golovkin with movement and sharp-punching in the face of one of boxing’s most dangerous punchers.

On Saturday night, Sep. 17, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez captured the WBO junior welterweight title from Liverpool’s Liam “Beefy” Smith via ninth round TKO inside of the AT&T Stadium in  Arlington, Tex.

Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) was precise throughout the contest, building up an early lead off of his combination-punching and work to the body. Smith was a brave opponent in the face of such firepower, but was never able to get his game plan on track.

This weekend will see top contender Carson Jones step back into the ring, as the Oklahoma City native will be following up on an April victory over Mikel Williams.

Jones’ 38-11-3 record with 28 knockouts is very deceiving, as he started his career at the age of 18 and was thrown to the wolves early, suffering some early setbacks that ended up becoming learning lessons.
