Cazares Won't Chase KO, Confident of Beating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Mario Cazares will not be chasing a knockout victory when he faces former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

The fight is scheduled for the light heavyweight limit on September 25 in Mexico.

The card is headlined by a trilogy exhibition clash between Mexican legends Julio César Chávez and Jorge Arce.


The two fighters were haggling over the weight, but everything appears to be on track for a contest over the ten round distance.

Cazares (11-0, 5 KOs) views the contest as the big opportunity that he needs to make a name for himself in the sport.

The unbeaten contender is best known for his win in the amateurs over Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

He expects Chavez Jr. to be the much bigger fighter at the weight, which is why he plans to be very cautious in the contest with his game plan.

“One thing I've learned is that when you go for the knockout, you stop doing your job. But when you do your job well, the knockout appears by itself. Obviously I will have to be very clear with the way in which I develop in the fight, to avoid surprises, but I am willing to take Chávez to a terrain that he does not know," Cazares told Erika Montoya.

"A teacher told me that with this fight they will not only know me in Sinaloa, but also in the whole world and that's what I want. I have dedicated a lot of time and effort to this career and I am not going to waste it, that is why I am willing to do my job well from start to finish so that there are no doubts and although I know that Chávez Jr. will try to do tricky things, I will not fall for his game. I will be focused on my fight plan."

Chavez will still be stoned for the first 5 or 6 rounds but when those dressing room joints wear off, Cazares is getting it. Possibly :439:

Chase a ko?? Almost everyone he has fought has a losing record and his ko% is less than 50. The only way he gets a ko is if Chavez trips and breaks a leg.
