Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Stops Andy Lee in Seven Rounds

Sun Bowl, El Paso, Texas - WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32KOs) stopped Andy Lee (28-2, 20KOs) in the seventh round.

Lee started the fight by shooting a good jab to keep Chavez on the outside. In the second, Lee landed several hard punches but Chavez continued to come forward and he was walking through Lee's shots. They were trading very big shots at the end of the fourth. Chavez was starting to hurt Lee in the fifth with hard punches to the head and body.

Chavez was working Lee over in the sixth and started leaning on Lee in the seventh and working over his body with hard hooks. As Lee was against the ropes, Chavez drilled him with a massive bomb and then worked him over with combinations until referee Laurence Cole stepped in to wave it off. Lee was out on his feet when the fight was stopped.

Lee was controling the fight for the first couple of rounds then started to stand and trade which was his downfall what happens when JR fights someone who can box for 12 rounds and keep distance like..... Sergio

[QUOTE=RapidFire26;12252962]It's a lot harder to push around Carl Froch than it is Andy Lee.[/QUOTE]This is spot on. Jr. impressed me against Lee, especially his body work; but he was markedly the bigger man. His stint at MW will be short.…

Great performance from Chavez. It was a relief to have a tko and be spared from the fear of judges making dumb decisions.

Just saw a replay. WOW Chavez Jr. is learning well from his father. If he comes at Sergio like he did in the 7th round He will stop him. I believe Chavez will hit his prime after he defeats Sergio.
