"When they told me (that the fight would be at Staples Center) I was very happy and excited, because this is my first opportunity to fulfill my dream of becoming a world champion and to fight in a place like this is impressive," established Chavez.

"Fighting in Los Angeles, where fans always supported my dad and where I have always been supported will be a plus, because that night I will have the opportunity to be crowned before a lot of Mexicans."

Let's hope we'll see a good fight this time. It's been a while since we saw Jr. do anything spectacular. Let's give him a break.

So is this why the WBC stripped Sergio? So they could get a son of a HOF Mexican champion who beat the legendary John Duddy to win a championship the easy way?
