Jorge Paez Jr. Shocks Omar Chavez With a Majority Nod

By Rafael Soto

Tuxtla Gutierrez - In a very electrifying atmosphere at the Arena Jorge Cuesy of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas - Jorge 'Maromerito' Paez won a ten round majority decision over previously undefeated Omar 'Businessman' Chavez in the welterweight main event of a special card called - 'Legacy of Legends'.

Chávez (27-1-1, 20 KOs) and Paez Jr. (30-4-1, 18 KOs) had a thrilling battle in a fight where Chavez tried to get a knockout but couldn't secure one. Paez controlled the early action with his boxing ability and managed to avoid the big punches of an incoming Chavez.

In the co-feature, former WBO flyweight world champion Julio Cesar "Pingo" Miranda won a ten round decision over Cecilio "Boga" Santos.
