Chavez Jr: No Rematch, I Won Seven or Eight Rounds

By Miguel Rivera

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1) does not see any reason to give Bryan Vera a rematch after winning a controversial ten round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The scores were 97-93, 96-94 and 98-92. Chavez-Vera took place at a catch-weight of 173-pounds. Vera wants a rematch at 168-pounds, but that isn't going to happen says Chavez.

"I think it's not a good night because people expect the knockout, but I think it was good fight," Chavez said. "A rematch is not necessary. I can't see him winning. I definitely won seven or eight rounds of the fight. I was very close to knocking him out like three times in the fight. He did throw a lot of punches, but his punches were not effective. All he does was use his head against me and throw low blows. I hurt my right hand early or else I would have knocked him out."

Maybe on "fight night" the game or something. But not last night. I'm a fan but son, you got outworked and outfought.
