The mythical pound-for-pound title is also at stake in the “Supremacy” main event as the Alvarez vs. Golovkin winner — both fighters are rated among the top 5 in virtually all polls used to rank fighters regardless of weight classes – will become the undisputed world middleweight champion and arguably the world’s best of the best.

RingTV.com, powered by Flipps Media, will live stream four pay-per-view fights and three preliminary bouts.  The eight fighters in the four pay-per-view fights have a combined 217.3.3 (147 KOs) record, including the 86-1-1 (67) Canelo-GGG record. 

The English language stream will have Golden Boy Promotions blow-by-blow announcer Beto Duran, while veteran boxing reporter and Ringtv.com editor Doug Fischer will serve as color commentator. In Spanish, commentary will be supplied by Jorge Milhe and Ernesto Amador.

In the 10-round co-feature, unbeaten featherweights Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (24-0, 13 KOs) and Jorge “Pilon” Lara (29-0-2, 21 KOs) battle in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Title Eliminator to position the winner for a world title shot against WBC Featherweight World Champion Gary Russel, Jr.

2012 U.S. Olympian Diaz, fighting out of South El Monte, California, is the reigning North American Boxing Federation (NABF) and North American Boxing Organization (NABO) featherweight champion.   The slick southpaw is rated among the top 10 by all four major sanctioning bodies – WBO #1, WBC #2, IBF #4 and WBA #9 – as well as No. 7 by The Ring magazine.  His Mexican opponent, Lara, is ranked No. 5 and 6, respectively, by the WBC and WBA, in addition to No. 9 by The Ring.

A pair of undefeated super middleweights, former IBF bantamweight world champion Randy “El Matador” Caballero (24-0, 14 KOs) and Diego “The Golden Kid” De La Hoya (19-0, 9 KOs), will square off in the 10-round NABF super bantamweight title fight.

California-born Caballero, ranked No. 6 by the WBC, will defend his NABF crown against De La Hoya, the WBC Youth World Champion De La Hoya, and cousin of the event’s promoter, Hall-of-Famer Oscar De La Hoya.  The young Mexican with the “golden” surname, De La Hoya, is also rated among the among the top 10 by all four major sanctioning organizations – WBC #4, IBF#6, WBO #7 and WBA #9 – in addition to being ranked No. 9 by The Ring.

In the opening PPV fight, undefeated Tennessee lightweight Ryan “Blue Chip” Martin (19-0, 11 KOs) defends his WBC Continental Americas title against a dangerous, upset-minded Mexican, Francisco “Paquito” Rojo (19-2, 12 KOs), in a scheduled 10-round fight.  IBF #9 and WBO #14 Martin faces the stiffest test of his young professional career in WBC #8 Rojo, who earlier this year knocked out WBC No. 1 contender Dante Jordon in the fifth round.

Three undefeated prospects will be showcased in the three preliminary bouts that will be streamed live on Ringtv.com. Ukrainian welterweight Serhii “El Flaco” Bohachuk (4-0, 4 KOs) meets an opponent to soon be determined in a four-round bout, while Dallas super lightweight Vergil Ortiz (6-0, 6 KOs) meets Cesar Valenzuela (7-1, 2 KOs), of Phoenix, in a six-round match.  2012 Olympic bronze medalist Marlen Ezparza (2-0), fighting out of Houston, faces Aracely Palacios (8-7, 1 KO), of Mexico, in the streaming event opener.

All fights and fighters are subject to change.

About Ring TV:

The Ring was founded in 1922 by Nat Fleischer. The first issue, dated February 15, 1922, was 24 pages and cost 20 cents. The cover featured black and white photographs of American promoter Tex Richard and Lord Lonsdale, a British aristocrat and boxing patron. Originally located in New York City, the magazine relocated to Long Island, New York, in 1990, and then moved to suburban Pennsylvania in 1993. It is now based in Los Angeles.

There have been only seven editors-in-chief in the magazine’s history. Michael Rosenthal is the current editor. The Ring began awarding championship belts in 1922. The first Ring belt was awarded to heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, the second to flyweight champion Pancho Villa. The magazine stopped giving belts to world champions in the 1990s, but began again in 2002 when it launched its new championship policy intended to reward fighters who, by satisfying rigid criteria, can justify a claim as the true and only world champion in a given weight class.

“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.

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.

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).
