Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Mario Cazares Finalized as Official Fight, Sept. 25

The return of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has been finalized.

Chavez Jr. will be in a supporting role to the exhibition that involves his father, Julio César Chávez, who is scheduled to face fellow Mexican legend Jorge “Travieso” Arce.

The event is scheduled for Friday, September 25 in Tijuana as part of a live streaming gala where you can buy tickets at

But Chavez Jr. will not take part in an exhibition fight. The contest will be sanctioned as an official contest.

Chavez Jr. (51-4-1, 33 KO's) will face Mario Abel Cazares (12-0, 6 KO's) over ten rounds at light heavyweight, in a duel where fireworks are expected between rivals from the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa.

Chavez Jr. was last in action back in December in Phoenix, where he was stopped in the fifth round by Daniel Jacobs.

Chávez Jr. still wants to fight for a world championship and has decided to share the scheduled card with his father.

His opponent is going through a great moment in his career. Last year, of his three victories, two were achieved by knockout in the first round in spectacular fashion.

Cázares, in his amateur career, defeated Mexican superstar Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. He's been calling for a showdown with Chavez Jr. and now he has it.

Chávez Jr. has not fought in Tijuana since March 2009, when he defeated Argentine Luciano Leonel Cuello by unanimous decision to become the WBC Latino super welterweight champion before a sold-out crowd at the Playas Bullring.

The clash between Chávez Jr and Mario Cázares will be the headline bout among the official fights. There will also be bouts involving younger brother Omar Chavez, and Arce's young nephew, the undefeated prospect Karim Arce.
