Vera Eyes Quillin-Rosado Winner if No Chavez Rematch

By Luis Sandoval

Brian Vera's four fight win streak and career resurgence came to a halt Saturday night as the three judges scoring the fight were about the only people in the Stub Hub Center that felt Julio Cesar Chavez Jr won the contracted 173 pound bout. Vera was extremely happy feeling he had won the fight but his mood changed once the score cards started being announced.

"When I heard 98-92 I kind of got sick to my stomach. I said 'Oh sh*t'. But still in my mind, I thought I won" Vera would tell BoxingScene.

Fighters in attendance such as Timothy Bradley and Mikey Garcia felt Vera deserved the nod which was a small consolation for Vera who was given the 7th loss of his professional career. Chavez said in the post fight press conference that he felt Vera did not deserve a rematch as he felt he won the fight convincingly.

Vera just smiled when Chavez's comments were relayed to him as he points to the damage on both men's face as even more proof as to who won the battle.

"I mean you look at [his face] and you look at me and you know what happened. I feel like I deserve a [rematch]. It's just he don't want it. Obviously he knows that happened in there. Anytime you fight someone the second time and you feel they beat you the first time, its only going to worse for him so he may not want it" said Vera.

If a rematch with Chavez  doesn't happen, Vera is ready to go down 13 pounds south and back to the middleweight division where he normally campaigns. It was never Vera's intention to return to the Super Middleweight division but given the circumstances, he found himself almost two weight classes above middleweight.

"We only came up to super middleweight because he was a middleweight coming up. I'd like to go back down to my number one ranking and fight Peter Quillin or somebody like that. That's where I was fighting at. Only reason I came up to 173 was because this lazy ass dude can't make weight so I went with it. Even though we fought at 173, I backed him up the whole night. Physically I felt I was stronger than him" informed Vera.

Vera would definitely be interested in the winner of Peter Quillin vs. Gabe Rosado which is taking place on October 26th and is actually tabbing Quillin to be victorious.

[QUOTE=davidw9785;13796160]Vera won the fight at least 6 rounds to 4 imho. That being said, his general fighting style and fundamentals looked terrible! Me and my girl were groaning every time he threw those wide, off-balance combos and was still there…

[QUOTE=oscar9992;13796344]Sturm, Geale, Murray, Barker and other euro bums[/QUOTE] Didn't know about Murray and Barker. Can understand Sturm and Geale since it's a lose/lose situation for them. GGG beats them all except Murray.

Chavez is one thing, calling out Kid Chocolate is a bit over the top.
