The expected comeback fight of former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. now has a location, a date, opponent and venue.

After more than two years of absence, the son of the legend, Chávez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KO's) will face Colombian veteran Evert Bravo (25-10-1, 19 KO's) on Saturday, August 10.

The card will be televised by Azteca 7, and promoted by Zanfer Promotions.

The contest will be based at the Premier Diamond Salon in San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco. The site agreement was reached on Thursday, thanks to the efforts of the director of Mega Events, Héctor Garcia and the Government of Jalisco.

Chavez Jr. will fight for the first time since May 2017, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Now at what he feels is his natural weight, super middleweight, and with a new corner, Chavez feels confident of being able to capture another world title. Chavez Jr. is training with experienced coach Romulo Quirarte in Tijuana.

Chavez Jr. was the first Mexican to become a world middleweight champion, when in June 2011 he defeated Sebastian Zbik for the WBC title. By accomplishing this, Chavez Jr. and his father became the second Mexican father-son duo to become world champions, after Guty Espada and Guty Espada Jr.

It will be the first time that Chávez Jr. fights in the Mexican state of Jalisco.

His opponent, Bravo (25-10-1, 19 KO’s), is a fighter with great experience and international experience. He's 34 years old, and has spent around 15 years as a professional boxer. The Colombian veteran stacks up in size to Julio Jr. and in his most recent fight he, knocked out Luis Gonzalez in four rounds.

Throughout his career he's fought in several countries and faced opponents such as Sean Monaghan, Junior Younan and Alfredo Angulo. In his only fight in Mexico, he was knocked out by Roamer Alexis Angulo.
