Chavez-Vera Rematch Being Pushed To February 2014

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Bryan Vera (23-7) will have to wait until next February to get a chance at avenging last month's decision loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32Kos). The fight was going to happen on a date in December, but Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum said he met with HBO and it was determined that Chavez-Vera II would get pushed to next year.

Chavez plans to continue his career at super middleweight. He failed to make the 168 limit for the match with Vera, which led to the contract weight being increased to 173-pounds. The fight ended in a controversial ten round unanimous decision in favor of Chavez. Most observers felt Vera had done enough to win.

"I feel very strong at super middleweight, and that's where I will continue my career. I will give a rematch to Bryan Vera, a brave fighter and then I want to face Andre Ward and Carl Froch, I want to be the best in the world at this weight," Chavez Jr. said.

Chavez Jr will look like Butterbean at the weigh in for that rematch.

Respect is earned not given so Chavez Jr is irrelevant in any weight division right now.
