Video: Canelo, Chavez Jr. Break Through Donald Trump's Wall

LOS ANGELES - Before Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) meets Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) for perhaps the biggest boxing event in history featuring two Mexican fighters, fight fans can get ready for all of the guaranteed action in this newly released commercial available here. As the fighters prepare for the mega battle, the teaser video paints both Mexican countrymen as larger than life figures ready to go to war in the ring. 

The advertisement, which will start on Saturday, April 15, opens with Canelo and Chavez, Jr. in historic Mexican locales. From there, the two most popular fighters in Mexico begin charging through a Mexican desert before breaking through a seemingly impenetrable wall. Their run ends in Las Vegas, where the fight will take place on the Saturday of Cinco De Mayo weekend.

"The message of this ad is simple - not every Mexican is what President Trump has labeled them," said Oscar De La Hoya, the former 10-time world champion in six weight classes and Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, the company putting on the fight. "Not only are a huge majority of Mexicans hard workers, this fight between Canelo and Chavez Jr. will directly benefit American business and employees. From the Las Vegas hotels and restaurants that will be full because of this fight, American industry will have a very successful Cinco de Mayo weekend."

I'll be honest with how much Oscar is talking about Trump you would think he was pumped and dumped. Fishnets is honestly one of the most annoying ****ers talking about Trump alongside Bob Arum.
