Chavez Sr vs Camacho Jr. Fight Preview
When Mike Tyson made his return to the ring last November, he showed that someone in their mid-50s can still bring it in the ring. Now, as the main event of a night that honors his own historic career, Chavez Sr. is stepping back into the arena he dominated for so long. A multiple-time world champion in three divisions and just weeks from turning 59 years old, he enters his 115th professional bout 16 years after his retirement; Saturday night won’t officially count of course.
Touching gloves with Chavez Sr. is Hector Camacho Jr., a former title-holder himself, and much more recently than his counterpart. In fact, Camacho Jr. last fought professionally in 2019, winning by knockout against Victor Abreu. The major draw for this bout is the storyline of a son avenging his father; in 1992 Chavez Sr. defeated Hector Camacho Sr. in a WBC Super Light title fight by unanimous decision.

Chavez Jr. vs Silva Fight Live
MMA fighters, it seems, have been entering the boxing ring more frequently in recent years, maybe none more high profile than when Conor McGregor challenged Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017. This isn’t the boxing debut for Silva, another legend of the Octagon, though it has been quite a while. Silva first entered the rin in a losing effort against Osmar Luis Teixeira in 1998. His only other boxing match was in 2005 when he defeated Julio Cesar De Jesus by knockout before making his UFC debut in June of 2006.
Chavez Jr. had a lot to live up to, being a legend of the sport and for the most part did. After making his professional debut at the age of 17 years old, he picked up his first of 23 consecutive victories. 18 of his wins during the streak were by knockout.
