“We’re thrilled to host the biggest boxing event of the year, Canelo vs. Chavez Jr.,” said Flipps Media Co-founder and CEO, Kosta Jordanov.  “With this amazing PPV card, the English and Spanish HD feeds, and top boxing experts in the live chat, this will be an amazing night for all fans!”

“Our team here at Golden Boy Promotions has been working with Flipps Media for over a year now and we are thrilled that they are helping make this ‘can’t miss fight’ available to an even wider boxing fan base,” said Golden Boy Promotions Founder and CEO, Oscar De La Hoya.

The “Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr.” PPV card is loaded with exciting knockout artists, with eight of the main card fighters having a combined record of 272-18-2 with 194 knockouts, highlighted by the Alvarez-Chavez, Jr. cumulative record of 98-3-2 with 66 stoppages.

Alvarez vs. Chavez, Jr. is one of the most anticipated fights, easily a Fight of the Year candidate, featuring two of the highest-profile Mexican warriors, fighting on Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Twenty-six year-old Alvarez (40-1-1, 34 KOs) is the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) world junior middleweight and The Ring magazine middleweight champion. The wildly popular fighter is moving up in weight to fight Chavez, Jr., who has dropped back down from light heavyweight.

Alvarez is 10-1 (6 KOs) in world title bouts, in addition to being 11-1 (4 KOs) in fights against current or past world champions: Shane Mosley, Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Miguel Vasquez (twice), Carlos Manuel Baldomir, Lovemore N’dou, Kermit Cintron, Austin Trout, Erislandy Lara and Liam Smith.

The son of legendary Hall of Famer Julio Cesar Chavez, Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) is a former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight world champion.  He has defeated world champions such as Carlos Molina, Sebastian Zbik and Andy Lee during his 13 ½ year professional career.

In his first pro loss, Chavez Jr. lost a 12-round decision to Sergio Gabriel Martinez, who survived a final round knockdown as Chavez tried to finish off the famed Argentinian.

The 10-round co-feature also has explosive potential as middleweights David Lemieux (37-3, 33 KOs) and Marcos “Dorado” Reyes (35-4, 26 KOs) have a higher combined knockout percentage than Alvarez-Chavez. Jr.

Lemieux, 28, is a highly skilled fighter from Montreal and a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) middleweight world champion.   He is 12-1 in his last 13 fights, since his loss to unified world middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.

At stake for Lemieux is a possible throw-down with “Canelo” later this year.  The Canadian slugger has quality victories over Curtis Stevens, Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, Gabe Rosado, Fernando Guerrero.  Lemieux is currently world rated among the top seven middleweights by all four major sanctioning bodies – WBO & WBC #4, WBA #5 and IBF #7 — as well as No. 3 by (independent) The Ring.

Reyes, fighting out of Chihuahua, Mexico, went the distance in 2015 with Chavez, Jr., in a loss by way of 10-round unanimous decision.  Reyes is a former WBC FECOMBOX middleweight and Mexican light middleweight champion.

Former Interim WBC super lightweight champion Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (37-4, 34 KOs) returns to action for the first time since October 3, 2015 against Maryland welterweight Emmanuel “Tranzformer” Taylor (20-4, 14 KOs).

Matthysse is a fan-favorite fighter, power-puncher from Argentina.  His signature victories have been against former world champions Ruslan Provodnikov, Lamont Peterson, Humberto Soto, DeMarcus Corley and Vivian Harris

Taylor was a decorated American amateur boxer who owned a 186-26 amateur record, including three gold-medal performances in the National PAL Championships.  The 26-year-old has never been stopped as a professional, taking world champions Adrian Broner and Chris Algieri the distance.  Taylor has defeated Karim Mayfield, Victor Manuel Cayo and Raymond Serrano, among the more notables.

Rising featherweight star Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. faces fellow undefeated Californian Manuel Avila in a 10-round bout with future world title fight implications.

The 24-year-old Diaz, Jr. (23-0, 13 KOs), a 2012 U.S. Olympian, is the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) featherweight champion. He is the No. 2 contenders in the WBC and WBO world ratings, as well as No. 7 in the IBF. His most recent fight was a win by a 10-round unanimous decision (100-90 X 3) over 30-1-1 Horacio Garcia last December.

Avila, rated No. 10 by the WBC, is a live underdog having defeated 28-6 Jose Ramirez, 24-7 Prosper Ankrah and 23-6 Rene Alvarado in his last three fights.

The event is available for pre-order now at the Canelo vs Chavez Jr. PPV site Canelo-Chavez.com

Alvarez vs. Chavez, Jr. es una de las peleas más esperadas, fácilmente una pelea del candidato del Año, con dos de los guerreros mexicanos de más alto perfil luchando en el fin de semana del Cinco de Mayo.

Alvarez (40-1-1, 34 KOs), de 26 años de edad, es el campeón mundial de peso mediano junior de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) y campeón de la revista The Ring. El Inmensamente popular combatiente de Guadalajara se sube de peso para enfrentarse contra Chávez, Jr., que ha caído de nuevo de peso semipesado.

Alvarez tiene 10-1 (6 KOs) en peleas por el título mundial, además de ser 11-1 (4 KOs) en peleas contra los actuales o anteriores campeones del mundo: Shane Mosley, Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Miguel Vásquez Manuel Baldomir, Lovemore N’dou, Kermit Cintrón, Trucha de Austin, Erislandy Lara y Liam Smith.

El hijo del legendario miembro del Salón de la Fama Julio César Chávez, Chávez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) es un ex campeón mundial de peso medio del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo (WBC). Ha derrotado campeones del mundo como Carlos Molina, Sebastian Zbik y Andy Lee durante su carrera profesional de 13 años y medio.

En su primera derrota profesional, Chávez Jr. perdió una decisión unánime de 12 asaltos ante Sergio Gabriel Martínez, quien sobrevivió a una caída en la ronda final cuando Chávez intentó acabar con el afamado argentino.

El co-protagonista de 10 asaltos también tiene un potencial explosivo, ya que los pesos medios David Lemieux (37-3, 33 KOs) y Marcos "Dorado" Reyes (35-4, 26 KOs) tienen un mayor porcentaje de nocaut combinado que Alvarez-Chávez. Jr.

Lemieux, de 28 años, es un luchador sumamente capaz de Montreal y un ex campeón mundial de peso medio de la Federación Internacional de Boxeo (IBF). Tiene 12-1 en sus últimas 13 peleas, desde su derrota al campeón mundial de peso medio unificado Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.

En juego para Lemieux es un posible tiro con "Canelo" a finales de este año.

Lemieux está actualmente clasificado entre los siete mejores pesos medianos por los cuatro principales cuerpos de sanción – WBO y WBC # 4, WBA # 5 e IBF # 7 -, así como el No. 3 por (independiente) The Ring.

Reyes, peleando fuera de Chihuahua, México, en el  2015 con Chávez, Jr., en una derrota por medio de una decisión unánime de 10 asaltos. Reyes es un ex campeón  WBC FECOMBOX peso mediano y campeón Nacional de peso medio ligero de México.

El ex campeón interino del CMB súper ligero Lucas "La Maquina" Matthysse (37-4, 34 KOs) vuelve a la acción por primera vez desde el 3 de Octubre de 2015 contra el peso welter de Maryland Emmanuel "Tranzformer" Taylor (20-4, 14 KOs).

Matthysse es un favorito de los aficionados de combate a base del poder de los puños del Argentino. Sus renombradas victorias han sido contra los ex campeones del mundo Ruslan Provodnikov, Lamont Peterson, Humberto Soto, DeMarcus Corley y Vivian Harris.

Taylor fue un renombrado y decorado amateur  que terminó con un record de 186-26 como amateur.  Eso incluye sus tres medallas de oro que ganó en el Campeonato Nacional PAL.  Como profesional nunca ha sido parado por vía rápida y se ha encontrado contra campeones mundiales como Adrian Broner y Chris Algieri.  Taylor ha derrotado a Karim Mayfield, Victor Manuel Cayo y Ramond Serrano entre los más reconocidos.

La creciente estrella de peso pluma, Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz, Jr.  se encuentra contra el invicto Californiano Manuel Avila en un combate de diez asaltos con futuras implicaciones en el título mundial.

A los 24-años de edad, Diaz Jr. (23-0, 13 KOs) fue un Olímpico Americano en 2012 y el actual campeón pluma de la Federación Nacional de Boxeo Norte Americano (NABF).  Clasificado número 2 por la OMB y la CMB y numero 7 por la FIB.  En su última pelea el Diciembre pasado, derroto por decisión unánime (100-90-3) en diez asaltos a Horacio García (30-1-1). 

Avila está clasificado numero 10 por el CMB y constantemente no es el favorito para ganar antes de la pelea, pero ha derrotado a José Ramirez 28-6, Prosper Ankrah 24-7 y Rene Alvarado 23-6 en sus últimas tres peleas.
