The big showdown between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will finally go down later tonight. Which boxer will come away with the win?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Alvarez is listed as the favorite in this bout, as he is getting odds of -500 to win. Chavez Jr. is listed with a money line of +350 to prevail. This bout will take place at Super Welterweight and be held from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The bout will be the main event of a PPV card that begins airing live at 9PM ET.

Bet on Alvarez vs. Chavez Jr.

Alvarez comes into tonight’s bout with a 48-1-1 record with 34 knockouts. He is the WBO light middleweight champion and Ring Magazine middleweight champion. The one loss Alvarez has suffered in his career was to Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in September of 2013. Since then, he has won six straight, four of which came by KO. His last bout was a ninth-round TKO win over Liam Smith back in September.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has a 50-2-1 record with 1 no contest. He has racked up 32 knockouts in his career. He suffered his last loss back in April of 2015 to Andrzej Fonfara, but has since won a pair of decisions. His last bout came in December when he defeated Dominik Britsch.

Chavez Jr. has a little bit of a size advantage on Alvarez, but Alvarez brings more power. Chavez hasn’t had a knockout win in nearly five years, but Canelo is continuing to rack up the knockouts. Even in his loss to Mayweather, it was just by majority decision, as he was able to remain competitive. Though this is an anticipated fight, the money fight right now for Alvarez would be with Gennady Golovikin, who is unbeaten. Tonight’s fight should be a prelude to that match, so I see Alvarez cruising to a decision win with his power and speed.
