Chavez Jr. Says Vera Fight Being Pushed To July 13

By Salvador Rodriguez

According to former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs), his anticipated ring return is being moved from June 22 to July 13th, against Brian Vera (23-6, 14KOs) and most likely at the Mexico City Arena.

"It is virtually a change of three weeks that I feel is necessary to get better prepared and that's a good date," Chavez said. "The fight is against Brian Vera, who is a dangerous opponent and one of the two options we had. We hope to announce it soon."

Chavez notes the Vera fight will be held at a catch-weight above the middleweight limit, likely at 165-pounds. He says there is no problem getting down to the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.

Pathetic opponent again. and no weight discipline mindset.why don't this idiot just move up to 168. with this 165 catch weight crap.he'll enter the ring dam near 200lbs. He's pathetic. and stop ducking GGG

**** fight, but I'm sure it'll be entertaining while it lasts. Sergio should still fight this kid @ 160 so he'll be weight drained come fight night. He's too much and it's getting harder and harder for him to make…
