Chavez Jr. Smiles: Jacobs Fight is Perfect For Me, I Will Deliver!

Former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (51-3-1 33 KOs) views Daniel Jacobs as the perfect opponent.

It was announced on Friday that Chavez Jr. would face Jacobs, also a former champ at 160-pounds, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday December 20. The bout has been agreed upon for the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds.

This will be Chavez's second fight since losing a lopsided twelve round decision to Canelo Alvarez back in May of 2017. Jacobs (35-3 29 KOs) was last seen in action back in May, also losing a twelve round decision to Canelo.

Chavez snapped his long layoff back in August and picked up a quick first round knockout in Mexico.

While almost everyone views him as a big underdog, Chavez Jr. has promised to upset the long odds.

“Going against Daniel Jacobs is the perfect fight for me because there is so much on the line,” said Chavez Jr. “A victory gets me one step closer to a world championship and I’m not going to let anyone stand in my way.

“I know that Danny Jacobs is a former world champion and is a strong fighter with very good boxing skills. Those are the kind of boxers that bring out the best in me. I’ve been working hard in the gym and can’t wait to let everyone see what I’ve been working on. I’m very motivated to get the win and at the end of the night I will have my hand raised in victory.  I ask my fans to believe in me.  I will deliver.”

As previously reported, the fight could be dependent on a hearing that Chavez Jr. must attend on November 20th with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Chavez Jr. is in hot water, because he refused to take part in a random drug test when an VADA agent arrived a few weeks ago at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood. Chavez Jr. claims the testing agent had no credentials to verify his identity.

Should Chavez Jr. get suspended, then Arizona could potentially follow their lead. If that happens, Gabe Rosado is waiting in the wings as a backup opponent

Chavez somehow beating Jacobs would say a ton, though Jacobs is faded, and fades in fights.

This fight should be easy money for Danny Jacobs. Chavez Jr. is strong, but he is too slow and has been too inactive. He will take a serious beating in this one. A good comeback fight for Jr. would be…
