Jessie Vargas: If weight doesn't affect Chavez Jr. he has big possibility of beating Canelo

Vargas believes that Chavez Jr. will have most of the advantages over Canelo Alvarez going into the fight.

In this video interview with FightHub, welterweight Jessie Vargas gives his assessment of the upcoming Canelo Alvarez-Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight. Check out what he had to say:

"It's a tough fight...If the weight doesn't affect Chavez, Chavez has a big, big possibility of winning because of all the advantages which is weight, height, reach, and if he fights the right fight. Canelo has a little bit of a disadvantage, the only advantage would be if Chavez comes in weak because of the weight problems.

"For the boxing community in general it's a huge fight, everybody wants to see it, they know that they're rivals. For Mexico everybody knows that the entire country will be tuning in that night to watch Chavez and Canelo Alvarez. It's gonna be a night to remember."
