Saul Alvarez v Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: What social media is saying

| 05.05.2017

We may still be getting over what we witnessed inside Wembley Stadium last weekend as Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko, but the big fights just keep on coming.

And this time it’s Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s (48-1-1 34KO) turn to take to the ring, as the WBO World super welterweight title-holder will go up against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (50-2-1 32KO).

The latter is stepping up a division and therefore finds himself as the 11/2 outsider to come out on top, while Canelo is as short as 1/10 to win.

So the odds are favouring the 26-year-old, but what’s being said on social media?

It’s fair to say the favourite is looking in great shape…

But his opponent has been working hard too…

However, not everyone thinks Chavez Jr is up to this bout…

Will Chavez be kicking himself if this is true?!

Now there’s a fight we’d love to see…

Who will the people of Mexico be siding with?

There’ll certainly be some value in this happening…
