Chavez vs. Alvarez Rematch is Finalized For April 29

By Rafael Soto

If the first fight between Omar Chávez and Ramón Álvarez, which took place in September 2014, was surrounded by controversy and interest, the second fight goes beyond the idea of gaining revenge - it involves the highest level of pride.

The rematch, Chavez-Alvarez II, will take place on April 29 in the city of Chihuahua over ten rounds in super welterweight division, with TV Azteca televising in Mexico and BeIn Sports to the United States and several other countries.

The duel between Chávez (35-3-1, 23 KO's) and Alvarez (24-5-2, 16 KO's) takes place a week before their brothers are expected to battle in Las Vegas.

On May 6th at the T-Mobile Arena, Chavez's older brother, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., will battle Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who is the younger brother of Ramon.


For this reason, the fight between Omar and Ramón is of paramount importance. The winner will give a big boost to his brother in the lead-up to a great commitment. The loser, on the other hand, will put extra pressure on his sibling to restore some family honor.

The location for this contest, the "Manuel Bernardo Aguirre" Gymnasium of the beautiful and historic Chihuahua, will be packed with wild fans to witness these two warriors who give everything in the ring.

Omar Chávez and Ramón Álvarez first met in the ring on September 27, 2014 in the Palenque of the Fair of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, in an exciting match - where Alvarez got a close decision victory.

"I will demonstrate to Ramon that the Chavez brothers are and will be better, they will never overcome our surname. I will motivate my brother Julio by defeating Ramón, I have prepared like never before in my career," said Omar, who has been training for the last 40 days at the Otomí Ceremonial Center along with his older brother, Julio César Jr.

A native of Guadalajara, Ramon Alvarez, has vowed to return strong by defeating Omar again - this time with greater clarity.

"The first fight was very good for the fans, the second will be better. My brother Saul motivates me with his fight against Junior and I do not see where I can lose to Omar. This is a matter of pride and I'm going to win," Alvarez said.
