Mora Gives Vera No Shot, Tabs Chavez Jr. By KO

By Rick Reeno

Former champion Sergio Mora (24-3-2, 7KOs) lost two very close decisions to Brian Vera (23-6, 14KOs) in the last three years. On September 7th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Vera will face former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) at the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds.

Chavez returns for the first time since suffering his first career defeat at the hands of Sergio Martinez last September in Las Vegas. In January, Vera defeated another former champ when he knocked out Sergei Dzinziruk.

At the end of the day, Mora expects Vera to bring the fight to Chavez, but he also expects Chavez to win by knockout in impressive fashion.

"Absolutely not [I don't give Vera a shot to win]. He's going to get knocked out with a bodyshot. It's going to get [Chavez] in the win column in exciting fashion because Brian Vera comes to fight. He has a very, very strong chin and a hard head. He's going to come very well prepared for this fight and wanting to win. With that said, Chavez will win an exciting fight by knockout with a bodyshot," Mora said.

I agree with him, even if it's not a body shot, I see Chavez walking through Vera.
