Review: 2013-09-28, very close fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Brian Vera: it gets three stars. Brian Vera ranked as the No.12 middleweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 23-6-0 (14 knockouts) while Julio Cesar Chavez Jr had a record of 46-1-1 (32 knockouts – Chavez Jr is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since September 15, 2012 when he was defeated by Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez). Chavez Jr vs Vera had been signed at the super middleweight limit of 168 pounds but this week the weight was increased to 173 pounds because Chavez had some problems making 168; moreover the fight has been reduced from a scheduled 12-round bout to a 10-round and Vera got extra money for changing the weight (approximate $400,000)..

Review: 2011-06-04, both undefeated, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Sebastian Zbik fought a tough and really nice match. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr defeated Sebastian Zbik and won the WBC middleweight title, even if the final punchstat said that Zbik thrown more punches (834 against 796) and with a higher percentage (47% against 32%), congratulations also to Sebastian Zbik at his first fight in the USA.

Review: Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last weekend faced Billy Lyell for the WBC Silver middleweight title. The son of the famous Julio Cesar Chavez, however, has not convinced all his fans and especially his trainer Freddie Roach, the principal cause was the good performance of Billy Lyell. It will not be the fight of the year of 2011 but is a good fight to watch. Watch the video!
