Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Dominik Britsch on December 10

By Rick Reeno has been advised that former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (49-2-1, 32KOs) will fight Germany's Dominik Britsch (32-2-1, 11KOs) on December 10th in the city of Monterrey, Mexico.

The fight was originally targeted for December 3rd, but Zanfer Promotions - who are promoting the event - secured a better venue, which had an opening for the 10th of that month.

Some fans might be familiar with Britsch's name. He was the scheduled first defense opponent for WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez, as part of the HBO pay-per-view undercard to Terence Crawford vs. Viktor Postol back in July. The fight fell apart when Ramirez withdrew with a serious hand injury.

According to Chavez's attorney, Guadalupe Valencia, the fight with Britsch has been agreed upon for a catch-weight of 169-pounds, which is one pound north of the super middleweight limit. Chavez's last two outings took place above 170-pounds.

Julio's younger Omar Chavez will be featured on the undercard, and undefeated prospect Alejandro Luna is also slated to see action on the card.

Chavez Jr. has been out of the ring since last July when he won a ten round decision over Marcos Reyes. During that win, he suffered a hand injury which required surgery and kept him out for the remainder of 2015.

Then he was being position for an April fight with WBC 168-pound champion Badou Jack, but Chavez injured his heel in training camp.

Once he healed up, he resumed his relationship with former trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. During a sparring session he reinjured his hand and had to wait a few weeks to start using it again.

He's been training for the last few weeks with his uncle, Rodolfo Chavez, in Culiacan, Mexico.

IMO he is kinda average... more interested how much jr. Has to pay if he doesn't make weight...

Not sure anyone but The Smash still worships this turd but the reality is a bum like Britsch is really Chavez's speed. No need having him get beat up by top 10 guys at 170-180

Wasn't Ramirez supposed to fight this dude before his injury? He's like 100 something ranked MW isnt he? Guess not bad for Jr - and that's sad.
