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 lost a unanimous decision to then-champion Sergio Martinez.

On Tuesday, Jan. 17, WBA featherweight champion Carl Frampton shook out for the media ahead of his Jan. 28 rematch with former three-division world champion Leo Santa Cruz. The sequel is set to air on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.

Frampton (23-1, 14 KO’s) is already in the city, and could be found hosting the press and doing a light workout during media day inside of the Porter Hy-Performance Center just north of the Strip. His first fight with Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KO’s) took place this past July 30 inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as the Northern Ireland native pulled out a majority decision in an excellent scrap over his rugged Mexican foe.
