A few days ago, Mexican brawler Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24 KOs) said he was very doubtful that Julio Chavez, Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) would be able to make the contract weight of 169-pounds. There was a max weight of 169, and it was raised to 170-pounds, and Chavez Jr. still came in at 170.8-pounds, and has to lose the additional weight unless a monetary agreement is reached between both sides. He was stripped down on the scale. Reyes was on point, at 168.4-pounds.

The fight will headline a Showtime televised card on Saturday night at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas.
