Arum favors Chavez Jr. to beat Canelo if he prepares himself properly

Bob Arum gives his take on the upcoming Canelo Alvarez vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum takes a moment to talk to FightHub about the upcoming Cinco de Mayo clash between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. In this snippet the promoter suggests that if Chavez Jr. remains disciplined throughout the duration of his training camp he likes Jr.'s chances. Check out what Arum had to say about the fight:

"Well I'm only going to be excited on that fight if Julio continues working hard in the mountains outside of Mexico City. He's putting in tremendous amount of work - if he listens to [Nacho] Beristain and if he works hard I not only give him a chance but I favor him to win the fight.

"But knowing Julio, unfortunately, that's a big 'if.' [Right now] he looks terrific, he's working hard, he's in great shape...great attitude, but it's Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and that can change overnight. So, so far so good."
