Saul Alvarez vs Matthew Hatton Live Fight Update & Follow on Twitter: KINGJ323
Alright fight fans, the day has finally arrived Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is getting his official coming out party to the world against Matthew Hatton for the WBC 154 lbs belt tonight at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.
We are ringside tonight to bring you all the live updates from what the view is on tonight's fights which also includes the comeback of the exciting, undefeated American powerhouse James Kirkland returning to the ring since being released from prison and Ponce De Leon vs Broner.
To get everyone up to speed, Canelo came in almost two pounds over weight to the agreed upon catchweight, so he will be paying a hefty penalty to Hatton. However, the 154lbs belt is still on the line since both fighters did come in under the 154lb limit.
A bit of controversy already surrounding the main event but in all honestly, it will most likely be Hatton's final chance to make some big money seeing he never really had what it takes to make that big brother Ricky Hatton money.
The Honda Center is one of the best venues to watch the fights as a fan, however, as part of the media many have complained about certain issues they have had covering a fight here such as the unstable internet connection and the lack of complimentary media buffet. Hopefully these issues will not be a problem tonight.

New WBO jr. lightweight intercontinental champion: Adrien Broner UD. All these Mexicans are booing like its Showtime at the Apollo.
Im glad the judges werent swayed by the crowd.
Crowd on their feet cheering not sure why maybe they are drunk. This fight was pretty mediocre. 10th final round ends with some trading back and forth however Broner looked to land the cleaner more effective shots. This Mexican crowd boos Broner when he gets on the ropes but screams when PDL gets up on the ropes.
We are waiting for the judges to tally up their scores.
Oh no the crappy annoying band right behind me are beginning to play again. PLEASE NO MAS!
Going into the 10th and final round PDL is the fighter exciting the crowd. It is a close fight and if the judges are swayed by this loud wild crowd then I can see PDL getting the decision.
Crowd is booing because Broner keeps sticking and moving out of harms way. Everytime PDL lands even if its not clean or effective this sold out Mexican dominating crowd goes nuts. However the crowds not judging this fight the judges are.
We are now in round 8. In round 7 Broner was doing a very sloppy poor mans version of PBF's shoulder roll and get tagged.
However I personally still have Broner winning this fight by a few rounds. He's comfortably outboxing PDL who seems to be just too small for him.
They just showed Canelo's mug on the jumbo tron and the crowd just fainted.
