Photos: Omar Chavez Presser To Announce 3/17 Return

By Rafael Soto

Culiacan, Sinaloa - Omar "Businessman" Chavez is convinced that this defeat to Jorge "Maromerito" Paez was not only a bad night, but he also learned that boxing should be taken more seriously and he is now committed to get back on track with more discipline as he hunts for a championship.

Chavez (27-1-1, 20 KOs) will reappear in the ring on Saturday March 17 in his hometown of Culiacan. According to Zanfer the show will be broadcast by TV Azteca, as he faces Colombian fighter Emilio Julio (20-7 -2, 13 KOs).

A press conference took place in Tuesday, officially announcing the fight with Omar's father, the legendary former triple world champion Julio Cesar Chavez. Also present, Francisco Franco of Zanfer and Manuel Perez of Corpox.

"I'm happy to fight in Culiacan for the third time in my career. I plan to have a good year, which includes a rematch with Paez and an eliminator for a world title fight [in 2013]," said the son of the Mexican legend.

"I think it will be a great battle, and it offers me the chance to redeem myself after the loss to Paez. I like fighting at home, but also I have the commitment to win and convince the public.

Chavez Sr. said - "I already saw it coming, because [Omar] was not disciplined. I was surprised with the way he was being prepared by Kochul Montiel, and I dare to point out that we will see a very different and more aggressive [Omar]. He suffered and he grieved over that loss. But again, it left a lot to learn. Maromerito didn't win, it was Omar who lost. We are waiting for the rematch.

In the co-feature, Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez will defend his WBA flyweight title against Mexico's Raul "Rayito" Garcia.
