THE 12TH ROUND

 

The 12th Round

By Mauricio Sulaiman

WBC President

 

 HECHO EN MEXICO / MADE IN MEXICO  


The highly-anticipated fight between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has caught the world's attention and will certainly be a great success. T-Mobile Arena was sold out immediately, the pay-per-view is expected to be over 1 million homes, and both major TV Networks in Mexico – Televisa and Azteca – will air the fight, which will break all existing records of TV audience in the history of Mexico. So, in essence, it is a monumental success.

Fight Night:
Rebel-T & Roy Jones Jr. Promotions
Rising Stars Shine in Inaugural Event
By Michele Chong

The action went down last Saturday night as Rebel-T Promotions and Roy Jones Jr. Boxing presented a live boxing show at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Convention Center.
This was the inaugural event for the brand new Rebel-T promotional company and the night was filled with plenty of fireworks in the ring. There were five bouts featured on this April 15 bash held in the San Fernando Valley. Over 600 attendees were in the arena to catch all the fisticuffs in the ring. The mood was spirited as this event took place the night before Easter.

ALL STAR TO GARNISH CANELO'S PURSE

 

All Star Boxing is seeking to garnish $8.5 million plus interest from the purse of Canelo Alvarez in his upcoming May 6 PPV fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in Las Vegas. A motion for a “Writ of Garnishment After Judgment” was filed in Circuit Court in Miami, Florida. According to the motion, Canelo has failed to pay All Star Boxing the money owed from the court-ordered judgment earlier this year and doesn’t appear to have visible property on which a levy can be made to satisfy the judgment. Golden Boy Promotions, The MGM Grand Hotel/T-Mobile Arena, and HBO have in their possession or control goods/money belonging to Canelo that can be garnished.
