Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Evert Bravo Set For August 10

By Rafael Soto

The son of a legend, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., will return to the ring after more than two years of inactivity, on August 10.

The expected return could land at Puerto Vallarta, Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco or the Tijuana border. What is confirmed is that his opponent will be Colombian fighter Evert Bravo, and the event will be carried by Azteca 7.

Chavez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KO’s), former WBC middleweight world champion, will fight at super middleweight, and will return to the ring for the first time since his loss to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, in May 2017 in Las Vegas - which took place at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.

His opponent, Evert Bravo (25-10-1, 19 KO’s), is a fighter with a lot of experience, 34 years old, and physically measures up to Chavez Jr.

He's had fights against Sean Monaghan, Junior Younan and Alfredo Angulo, and Roamer Alexis Angulo.

Chavez Jr. has had an intense preparation of more than three months in Tijuana, under the orders of coach Romulo Quirarte, and the boxer says he is fully motivated to give everything of himself with one final run.

The details of the fight, and the event, will be announced by Zanfer promotions during the week.

Also on the card, the reappearance of former world champion, Jose “Bolivita” Uzcategui. And seeing them on the same card could be a build towards a future bout.

I imagine the WBC will sanction an non existent title with a ridiculous catch weight,
