OUR LIVE COVERAGE CONTINUES HERE

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. kept his undefeated record in a sleep-inducing 10-round decision over Michigan club fighter Troy Rowland in the final fight on the Cotto-Pacquiao undercard, winning on scores of 99-91, 98-92, 97-93. Bad Left Hook scored it 97-93 for Chavez.

Chavez is now 41-0-1 (30), while Rowland falls to 25-3 (7).

There's not really much analysis here. This fight had no business on PPV, especially one this big, and was met with boos by the crowd at the MGM Grand, which it rightly earned. In all fairness to Rowland, he came to win and did his very best. Chavez, who was there to be showcased, was terribly unimpressive yet again. At 23, I know some people like to point out that he's young, but he really just does not improve, ever. If there's really an "it," he does not have it.
