BoxingScene.com was advised that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has withdrawn from this coming Saturday's fight with Pawel Wolak. Chavez was battling flu-like symptoms for the last few days. Chavez missed a few days of training and tried to move forward with the fight. Because he missed a few days of training, the agreed-upon weight was even raised to 165-pounds.
Chavez worked out on Monday at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California. He seemed fine, but sources tell BoxingScene that he woke up Tuesday morning with a fever "that was over 100-degrees."
Chavez-Wolak was the headliner of Top Rank's pay-per-view taking place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Nonito Donaire's bantamweight bout with former champ Wladimir Sidorenko has been moved to the main event position.
Wolak will remain on the show in an eight round contest against Jose Pinzon of Mexico.
