By Francisco Salazar

Three months ago tonight, Ramon Alvarez and Johnny Navarette fought to a split decision draw over eight rounds.

They will square off in a rematch at the Gimnasio Usos Multiples UdeG in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The 10 round middleweight bout will air live tonight on beIN Sports en Espanol (11 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. PT).

Alvarez (24-6-3, 16 knockouts) will be fighting in his hometown of Guadalajara. The 31-year-old Alvarez will attempt to begin a winning streak after having only won once in his last four bouts.


His most notable bout of 2017 came on Apr. 27 when he was stopped by Omar Chavez in the second round.

Alvarez is an older brother of Canelo Alvarez.

Navarette (33-10-2, 15 KOs) is winless in his last three bouts, including the draw to Alvarez on Sept. 2. Navarette, who hails from San Juan Zitlaltepec, Mexico, has fought two other times in 2017, losing to unbeaten Custio Clayton and Jaime Munguia.

Unbeaten featherweight Carlos Ornelas (17-0, 9 KOs) will face hard-hitting Dennis Contreras (20-8, 19 KOs) in an eight round bout.

It will be a rematch of their May 13 bout, when Ornelas won by majority decision over eight rounds.
