In what will be one of the most high-profile fights of 2017, Mexican warriors Canelo Alavrez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr will do battle on May 6, Cinco de Mayo Weekend.

Boxing needs big fights that generate mainstream interest. And if the fighters have crowd-pleasing styles, like Alvarez and Chavez Jr, even better.

Elite trainer Robert Garcia recently told, "It's [Canelo vs Chavez] a huge fight." It's going to be, probably, one of the biggest fights since Pacquiao vs Mayweather."

"It can be a hell of a fight."

"It's going to be pretty interesting...both of them are hungry to get that's about not only himself, but pride...the whole country...his family, the last name means a lot..."

Despite what some boxing purists say, superfights, regardless of whether they make sense, are good for the health for the sport because they a) generate a lot of mainstream buzz and attract new fans b) generate a lot of money and c) sometimes help create stars.
