The energy was so charged in there with the mariachis and whatever. “Fans were lined up at the MGM ticket office will contact us to pick up their reserved tickets considering that about 8 a.m. Those who didn’t get tickets early needed to wait in a different line that twisted around

the outside of the arena and stretched more than 200 feet down the street. There were fans wearing face paint, boxing gloves and Mexican flags curtained over their shoulders. Some in mariachi gear took out instruments to captivate those desperately waiting hours for a glimpse of Alvarez

and Chavez Jr.” It was all worth it, “said Eddie Velasquez, who also drove from Los Angeles. He will be watching the battle at one of the MGM Grand’s closed-circuit television celebrations Saturday night.” It’s going to be an excellent fight.
