Three title fights on one card
Alvarez (24-0, 12 KOs), 34, a Colombia native fighting out of Montreal, challenged Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KOs) for his 175-pound world title on Aug. 4 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in an HBO-televised main event and was trailing on all three scorecards -- 59-55, 59-55 and 58-56 -- when he rallied to knock Kovalev down three times in the seventh round for an upset victory by knockout.
Featherweight world title holder Oscar Valdez after nearly a year out of action due to injury in a defense against Carmine Tommasone; blue-chip lightweight prospect Teofimo Lopez Jr. in a 10-rounder; and, as expected, the vacant lightweight title bout between Richard Commey and Isa Chaniev.
