Tonight, across the pond in Las Vegas, Saul ?Canelo? Alvarez goes head-to-head with Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr.

The fight, a catch-weight one with the weight limit set at 164.5 pounds, will take place at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Yesterday, the weigh-in was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas.

On what was a sweltering hot day in Las Vegas, people queued for hours waiting for the doors to open.

Once opened the estimated crowd interested in seeing the proceedings was put at 4,000.

Stepping on to the scales, both boxers eight in at 164 pounds with Canelo looking very comfortable at the weight.

In the USA the fight is on HBO pay-per-view whilst here in the UK it can be seen on Box Nation, with the coverage starting at 02:00 hours Sunday morning.

As for picking a winner, I?ll go for Canelo, by stoppage around round seven.
