Chavez vs Manfredo: Official Fight Poster

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's the official Top Rank poster for Saturday night's event in Houston, with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr defending the WBC middleweight title against Peter Manfredo Jr in the main event.

The HBO poster is such a waste I'm not even bothering. 2/3 of the poster is a Cotto-Margarito 24/7 graphic, and the guys actually fighting on Saturday are down at the bottom, sort of as a reminder that there's also live boxing Saturday on HBO. This might not be the biggest fight ever, but it deserves more than that from the network.

We'll have more on Chavez vs Manfredo on Friday, leading up to our round-by-round live coverage on Saturday night, which will begin at 10:30 EST. Here's hoping the live fight is first, and the Pacquiao vs Marquez replay goes second, but don't count on it. Don't forget also that Cotto vs Margarito 24/7 debuts at 10 p.m., before the fight.
