Andy Lee-Bryan Vera Rematch Could Be The Reward

By Rick Reeno

Middleweight contender Bryan Vera (18-5, 11KOs) may receive a well deserved reward for his upset win over former champion Sergio Mora (22-2-2, 6KOs). Vera won a close ten round split decision to become only the second man, with the late Vernon Forrest being the other, to beat Mora. The scores were 96-94 on two cards for Vera, with the third judge scoring 96-94 for Mora.

Promoter Lou DiBella advised BoxingScene.com that if Andy Lee (24-1, 18KOs) is able to beat undefeated Craig McEwan (19-0, 10KOs) on March 12, then he would explore the possibility of making a Lee-Vera rematch.

In 2007, Vera got off the floor in the first round to stop Lee within seven. Lee has won nine in a row since the loss. The fight with McEwan is the HBO-televised co-feature to Sergio Martinez-Sergei Dzinziruk at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Has Lee signed with Dibella?

Lee vs Vera reminds me of Dawson vs Pascal because in both fights imo the better fighter did not win and in rematches i think both fights have different outcomes.
