Since Conor cashed his usual giant cheque, I'd bet they're still there.

Oh, and as a reminder since none of the stories mention it: Brock passed his first five drugs tests after his re-instatement.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. finally signs to fight Canelo Alvarez in May. Should be great spectacle even if it's nothing much of a fight. This is a cash-out bout for Chavez Jr., who long since pissed away any of the credibility he got from daddy's name on a series of mismatches, blown weigh-ins, shitty catchweight fights, and questionable decision wins. Alvarez will stop him even if he misses weight, which he probably will.

It's not that JCC, Jr. grew up wealthy - Barrera came up in an affluent family and he's one of the toughest sumbitches ever to draw breath. Jr. was sheltered too early and for too long. He didn't spend any time in the meatgrinder of the Mexican amateur circuit, and he made so much money knocking over tomato cans that he went right to the hookers, blow and buffets without even a layover at "great fighter".

As a rule I don't recommend Joe Rogan Experience but this is Mauro and Bas (who is looking better than he has in years.)

update: first line I've seen has Chavez +600 and Canelo -900.

Hold if you want to make money on the upset. That'll shift even more to Canelo for the first bit.

Shit, you may as well go down to the mini-mart and blow it all on scratch tickets.

I wanna say the recent report was that 94% of Golden Boy's income in 2016 came by way of Canelo. They're not putting him in spitting range of a fight he has any chance of losing.

I know, but that's going to end up +1500 or more.

Now, it still might be a canny move to bet the over on rounds, because unless Chavez is drained to the point of semi-consciousness by the weight cut he may still be too big and resilient for Alvarez to knock him out.
