Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) is back on HBO this Saturday in a fight at 168 against middleweight contender Brian Vera (23-6, 14 KO’s) at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Chavez Jr. is one of those guys that do well when he has a huge weight advantage over his opponents, and in putting him in the 168 lb. division, the weight advantage isn’t quite as much.
Vera, 31, guarantees that the fight will have a lot of slugging and very little in the way of defense. It’s just too bad that HBO didn’t push for Chavez Jr. to fight someone a little better than this.
