Jorge Paez Has No Interest in an Omar Chavez Rematch

By Miguel Rivera

A few weeks ago at Tuxtla Gutierrez, welterweight contender Jorge 'Maromerito' Paez won a ten round majority decision over previously undefeated Omar 'Businessman' Chavez in the 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, but the two boxers are not on the same page as it relates to a rematch. Omar, the son of legendary Mexican boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, is pushing for a rematch to avenge his first career defeat, but Paez has other plans in mind. Paez wants to face opponents who are going to assist his goal of obtaining a higher ranking for a title shot opportunity.

Paez has nothing to win in a rematch with Omar. If the fight would have been a close decision then it would be good for him to have a rematch, however he completely dominated Omar and won at least 8…

Paez surprised many, myself included but he tuff, durable w/some skill but I thought the difference was Chavez fought far inferior opposition...Jr's better, not sayiing much...

Paez looked great in there. If he can keep up the motivation he can make some fun fights.
