Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Andy Lee: Date, Start Time, Live Stream and Schedule
After one of the most controversial weeks in recent boxing history, things look to get back on track as Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., defends the WBC middleweight championship against Andy Lee on Saturday night.
It has been a strange journey to get to this fight, as it was cancelled two months ago for security reasons. Everyone managed to figure out a way to make it work, and it was reinstated the next day.
Chavez has had one small speed-bump in his illustrious career. He has taken a lot of steps to turn himself into one of the best and most-respected boxers in the world.
Who Ya Got?
Lee has seemingly been building to this fight for the last two years, especially after avenging his only loss to Brian Vera last October.

Chavez Jr.'s Keys to Victory
Maintain discipline throughout the fight; don't try to get too cute.
As talented as Chavez is, there have been various moments where he looks like he is trying to be reckless.
Chavez has come around to a more traditional, focused fighting style in recent years, and the results have propelled him to the top of the middleweight division. He still has to work on maintaining focus, but I feel better about him as a fighter now than I did last year.
Lee's Keys to Victory
Don't let the pressure of this fight beat him; use power strikes to frustrate Chavez.
Lee has deserved a high-profile fight like this for some time. Now that he is here, he must not let the opportunity pass him by. This could be a star-making fight for Lee, if he is able to walk away with a victory.
Given Chavez's tendency to lose focus on the task right in front of him, Lee must use his power and precise striking to knock the champion off his game early.
What They Are Saying
Chavez's trainer Freddie Roach told Boxing Scene in the build-up to the fight that his boxer is starting to hit his stride as a professional.
"I'm most proud of his dedication for this fight. It was an issue in the past, but he's working harder than ever now. Julio always trains hard with me in the gym. He does everything we ask to prepare for a fight like this. He is prepared to fight Andy Lee."
If Chavez truly is on point for this fight, he could be unbeatable. It is one of those things I won't believe until I see it.
For some reason, I just feel like this is Lee's time. He is a more complete fighter than Chavez, though he may not be as accomplished. This is the moment he has been building towards for years.
Lee wins via split decision.
