    So suddenly now the big PPV is over Chavez is telling people Canelo isn't as popular and pretty as he his. Despite being involved in the new PPV record Chavez Jr is claiming he is much better known. I don't see why not aside from weight but it's not like that really matters anymore. Could potentially break 1 million buys.

    This fight makes sense on a boxing and business scale. Canelo has something to prove with his Mayweather loss and show that he is a popular fighter and one of the top Mexican fighters. Chavez Jr. is a beast but will this fight happen at 160 lbs? Canelo can certainly make that weight with ease while Chavez Jr. apparently struggles but I'm sure he'll make that weight if it's for Canelo.

    Oh yeah, forgot who Chavez was with.

    Still a bit strange for them to go starting this stuff up now.
