Photos: Chavez Beats Vera, Salido Shocks Lomachenko

Former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. unanimously outpointed Bryan Vera in a super middleweight rematch Saturday night at the Alamodome, rebounding from perhaps the worst performance of his career. Chavez (48-1-1) had winning scores of 114-113, 114-113 and 117-110. In September, Chavez struggled while outpointing Vera (23-8) in a disputed ten round unanimous decision in Carson, California. Chavez failed to make weight, forfeited a six-figure portion of his purse and appeared to allow Vera to win the later rounds. Photos by Chris Farina and Eric Gray.

Mexico's Orlando Salido outpointed two-time Olympic champion Vasyl Lomachenko in a featherweight bout Saturday night at the Alamodome after losing his WBO title when he failed to make weight. Salido (41-12-2) had winning scores of 116-112 and 115-113, and the third judge scored it 115-113 for Lomachenko. Lomachenko, from the Ukraine, could have won the WBO title in his second pro fight, but it remained vacant his loss.

Lomachenko, 1-1 as a pro after going 397-1 as an amateur, earned an extra $15,000 for keeping the fight after Salido came in over the 126-pound class limit.
