Boxing Picks, News and Promotions
Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Pick - Vegas will be rockin' Cinco de Mayo weekend as two of Mexico's best go at it in a 164.5 catch-weight fight as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48-1-1, 24 KOs) comes in as a GIANT -900 favorite against Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs). - 5/6
Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko Pick to Win - IBF and WBA Heavyweight Championship belts are on the line when undefeated 27 year old Anthony Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs) goes up against a man 14 years his elder, Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs).

Saul Alvarez vs. Liam Smith Pick - Canelo drops back down into the light middleweight division after fighting as a middleweight. Lots of variables in play here that make this look like a really one-sided bout including the bout being held on Mexican Independence Day in Las Vegas, which will have the crowd squarely on his side. Laying $1200 to profit $100 would be ludicrous, so Scott gives his opinion on the over/under here. - 9/17
