This Saturday night on HBO, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Peter Manfredo will fight for Chavez's middleweight strap. In preparation for the bout, the two fighters held public workout sessions, and you can view a video clip of the action right here.
Clearly, both guys look to be in good condition. It's a huge chance for Manfredo, and he's certainly a major underdog to upset the rising Chavez Jr. But he's a tough guy and he'll give it his all in the ring, and it looks as if both men are ready to put on a good show.
Enjoy the video clip above of Chavez Jr. and Manfredo training and check back soon for more fight week updates.

This Saturday it's Chavez; next weekend...
