There were plenty of eyes trained on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on Friday as he stripped off and prepared to step on the scale in front of several thousand fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. One of the big, hitherto unknown, variables in the build-up to his Saturday contest with countryman Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was the physical condition of Chavez, who once fought at middleweight but of late has been fighting at roughly 10 pounds above that division’s weight limit. Would he, the notoriously undisciplined bigger man, be able to force his lanky frame down to 164.5 pounds, the contracted catch weight for this battle for Mexican bragging rights?

When Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. steps into the ring at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, HBO Pay-Per-View), he won’t just be fighting his designated opponent, Canelo Alvarez. He will also be battling expectation and the burden of his name, of being the famous son of an even more famous father. That father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., is widely regarded as the greatest boxer ever to come out of Mexico, a fact that in many ways doomed Junior’s career, or at least limited the degree to which his countrymen would view him as a success. When Julio Cesar Chavez is your dad, nothing you can do -– no amount of world titles you secure, fans you win or money you earn — will ever be enough. You will never be as good as your father.

This is a fight that’s consuming Mexico,” said the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez on Wednesday, at the final press conference for the Cinco de Mayo weekend battle for Mexican bragging rights between his son, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and Canelo Alvarez.Alvarez – whose lone loss came to Floyd Mayweather three and a half years ago, when he was significantly less developed as a boxer than he is now – is the favorite with bookmakers and fans; but, insisted Chavez Jr., “I am here to win and not just to fight.”“For my part, I’m going to do all I can to ensure that this fight goes down as one of the greatest fights in the history of Mexico,” stated Alvarez.The HBO PPV card is live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Saturday, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
