With a well-respected physicist, former WBC middleweight world champion Julio César Chávez Jr. took the first step towards a first level comeback: He overcame the process of the scale not only without problems, but demonstrating that he is back in boxing with the hunger and desire to transcend.
Chávez Jr (50-3-1, 32 KO's) will face Colombian Evert Bravo (25-10-1, 19 KO's) this Saturday, at the “Antonio R. Márquez” stadium in San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco.
The event will be presented by Zanfer Promotions with the support of the Hotels and Motels Trust of San Juan, the Municipality and Government of Jalisco, Code Jalisco and Mega Code events. The card will be televised by TV Azteca in Mexico.
Chavez Jr. and Bravo posed for the photos, and the son of the Mexican legend showed his confidence, his motivation and his desire to win. Chavez Jr. admits that a loss would mark the end of his career.
The fight was thought to have been taking place at super middleweight, but it appears the contest is going to happen at the light heavyweight limit of 175-pounds.
