Tonight on HBO, BoxNation, Azteca, and more channels around the world, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr defends his WBC middleweight title against Andy Lee in El Paso, Texas.
Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage. Note for those watching the HBO broadcast, the broadcast will go up at 10, but the replay of Pacquiao vs Bradley will air before the live fight, which will start closer to 11 p.m. EDT.
Fight time: 10:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Prudential Center - Newark, NJ
TV channel: HBO (US) / BoxNation (UK) / TV Azteca (Mexico) / Sport 1 (Hungary) / Main Event PPV (Australia)
Preview: I picked Chavez by decision on Friday, but it's close to a 50-50 fight.
Odds: Chavez is actually a pretty strong favorite here, with four books having him listed at -365, -370, and -400 (twice). Lee has lines of +270, +300, and +305.
There is no televised undercard tonight, and the closest thing to notable on the off-TV lineup is IBF lightweight titlist Miguel Vazquez facing Daniel Attah in a non-title bout. Prospects Abraham Han, Robert Marroquin, and Casey Ramos are also in action.
