Team Vera: Chavez Rematch Would Have To Be at 160

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Promoter Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions has stated that a rematch between his boxer, Bryan Vera, and former champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., would have to take place at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.

Vera faces Chavez on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

The weight for the fight has been a controversial matter, as Vera's team watched the weight limit rise from 163 to 173 over the last few weeks. They were going to fight at super middleweight, but Chavez is having some weight struggles and the match was moved closer to the light heavyweight limit.

Pelullo believes the stage could be set for an upset and he doesn't want Vera, a top rated middleweight, to be put in this kind of disadvantage again.

"Chavez has been training at 10 at night, only to lose weight', while Bryan is better prepared than ever....so it is best that Julio is ready. Vera is hungry and motivated. These are the kind of fights that define the career of a boxer. Since the moment Bryan was offered the fight with Julio, he's been ready. I think that it will be a very interesting match. Everything in this life is a matter of time. If Vera beats Julio, of course we would offer him a rematch, although it would have to be at 160-pounds," Pelullo said.
