The promoters of Saturday night's middleweight title fight between WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and challenger Andy Lee are certain that any controversy surrounding the venue in El Paso, Texas, has been resolved.
 
    
They're also hopeful no more trouble arises if the fight goes to the judges.
 
    
The bout between Mexico's favorite son and Ireland's top contender will take place at the University of Texas-El Paso's Sun Bowl Stadium, just across the border from Ciudad Juarez, where drug and gang violence has made the city one of the most dangerous in Mexico.
 
    
University of Texas system Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa briefly canceled the fight in April, citing a "higher than normal" risk assessment.
 
    
The moved created uproar in El Paso, statistically among the safest cities in the U.S.
