They’ve officially run out of memes to describe the beating Julio César Chávez Jr. took from Canelo Álvarez on Saturday night.
At least Chávez Jr. went the distance, which is all Rocky wanted, too. Maybe that counts for something. But in the end, dude was Papa Doc in the final battle, with Álvarez dropping bomb after bomb.
Ain’t no such things as halfway crooks.

From one ring to another, some pro wrestling legends took fans to school at Las Vegas’ Fantasy Slam. Among the attendees at the $3,500-per-ticket fantasy camp: WWE Hall of Famers Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Sinn Bodhi, D’Lo Brown and “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart.
Of all the Saved by the Bell alums, Mario Lopez is … one of them.
The entertainment show host and his wife Courtney arrived in Vegas for the Cinco de Mayo weekend and took in Britney Spears’ Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood on Friday night.

Guess they couldn’t get tickets to Dave Chappelle.
Speaking of Chappelle, the comedian decided to stick around for a bit following Friday night’s show at Mandalay Bay.
And why not? When it’s fight weekend in Vegas you don’t split before the fight.
Chappelle was seen snapping pics with fans on Saturday, including ring announcer Michael Buffer, who tweeted a picture of himself with Chappelle at a post-fight dinner.
One of the best tweets of the night actually came from promoter and ringside fan Oscar De La Hoya, who threw shade at America’s game show host-turned president.

And a nation cheered.
Meanwhile, Mario and Courtney Lopez enjoyed their post-fight dinner at Beauty & Essex inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. We’re told the couple dined on the yellowtail sashimi, tomato soup dumplings and tuna poke tacos.
That all sounds good right now.
Also spotted on the Strip: reality television show participant Ronnie Magro, who took in DJ Eric D-Lux’s performance at Tao Nightclub. Magro’s Jersey Shore show ended almost five years ago, but somehow he still got to hang out in the VIP section.
It’s not like he’s Mario Lopez.
You’d think people would be exhausted from drinking and partying and drinking some more and watching a fight and drinking.
No. They were ready to go. Unfortunately, Sunday’s rain and clouds spoiled the pool party for some.
Kaskade, who was set to blow up Wet Republic’s Endless Sundays party, was forced to cancel on account of rain and 53 degree temperatures.
Don’t cry too long. He’ll be back May 20 and again on May 27 for the dayclub’s monster Memorial Day weekend celebration.
