Alvarez vs. Chavez Rematch is Going Down on April 29

By Miguel Rivera

A few weeks ago it appeared to be unlikely, but apparently a deal has been worked out for a rematch between Mexican rivals Ramon Alvarez and Omar Chavez.

Alvarez, who had little interest in the fight, has confirmed that he'll face Chavez again on April 29 in Rosarito, Baja California, under the promotion of Zanfer And TV Azteca televising the card.

The fight takes place a week before their brothers are scheduled to trade punches. Raul's younger brother, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, will face Omar's older brother, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, on May 6th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The first time Ramon and Omar collided was in 2014, with Alvarez walking away with a clear decision win.

Although Alvarez was disappointed that the fight will not be in Las Vegas on the undercard of the pay-per-view battle between their brothers, in the end he was pleased with the monetary offer for the rematch.

"In the end there was always going to be the rematch. I think it was better in Las Vegas on the same card as our brothers, but neither Chavez Jr. nor Chávez's dad wanted to have that distraction and the fight will instead be done a week before. Because we are going to have all of the attention - I am sure that I will repeat the dose on Omar, and I hope this time by knockout," stated Alvarez to ESPN Deportes.

"What attracted me to this fight is that they told me that if I beat Omar I would fight for a world championship in my next fight, so I have to win to achieve my dream of competing in a world championship fight and beating him will give added motivation to my brother."

Ramon will reach the ring with a record of 24-5-2 record and 16 KOs, while Omar will do it with a record of 35-3-1 and 23 KOs.

Shame it ain't on the card but I agree with the reasoning.
