Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. warned that the future of his career is at risk in the fight against Argentine opponent Nicolas Masseroni, whom he will face on November 21
"This fight is very important because it represents what is going to happen with my career, which has been questioned in the last two fights. This fight represents everything for me and the future of my career," Chavez Jr. said.
Chávez Jr. tasted defeat in back to back fights. He lost by technical decision to his compatriot Mario Cázares this past September and back in December 2019 he was stopped by Daniel Jacobs.
This will be the third fight in less than a year for the former world middleweight champion, who at 34-years-old had a record of 55 wins, five losses and a draw.
The Mexican said that the battle against Masseroni, 28 and with a record of 19 wins and one loss.
Chavez Jr. expects a spectacular bout because of the styles of both fighters.
"I think it will be a very action-packed match, something that people are going to enjoy because of our styles of exchanging punches and people like that," Chavez Jr. said.
In addition, he said he was prepared for everything (against Masseroni) - even head butts and elbows.
"I have prepared very strongly and I know that everything can happen, but I am going to win by knockout, I am going to knock him out quickly so that there is no controversy," Chavez Jr. said.
"I'm going to look good, better than in my last two fights. I have taken great care of myself. I have fought with the best in the world and he has not. I have been more constant in my preparation. I have stayed at 168 pounds, that was not what he did. They are going to see my best version. I do not fight with criticism, I do not pay attention to it, it is part of my job. It is better that they talk about me, it does not matter if it is good or bad, but it is better than not speaking about me at all."
