Photos: Omar Chavez, Roberto Garcia - Go Face To Face

By Rafael Soto

Omar "Businessman" Chavez and Roberto Garcia will collide in a very interesting 10 round super welterweight fight on Saturday, August 12 at the Nuevo Leon Gym at Manuel L. Barragán Avenue in Monterrey, in a Zanfer promotion - which will be broadcast by Azteca 7 and in the United States by Bein Sports.

The official announcement was made Thursday in the city of Monterrey before a very busy and lively press conference in which both contenders expressed their confidence and there was a division of opinions among the representatives of the media.

Executive Director of promotions Zanfer Juan Carlos Torres said that the clash between Chavez and Garcia will mark the future for both.

"It's definitely an explosive fight, both are very strong and have power in both hands, but Garcia takes advantage of experience, has faced several world champions and most of his fights have been on the large stages in the United States. He's never been knocked out and Omar had no amateur career and his professional development has gone on a slower pace. For Omar to fight with Garcia, it represents a lot and it show if he will make the jump to world title fights and the talent Omar has," said Torres.

Omar ¨Businessman¨ Chávez reiterated that a triumph against García will put him in line to dispute for a world title this year.

"It's the kind of opponents I've asked my company for and it's time to show what we're made of. I want to fight the best, to be world champion and Roberto Garcia is the first step. We are doing a great preparation and on August 12 people will see a great fight and will see an Omar Chavez at his maximum capacity," said the youngest son of Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.

Omar comes back from a spectacular knockout of Ramon Alvarez, the older brother of Canelo.

For his part, García said Zanfer made a wrong move by picking him to face Chavez.

"I'm in a big moment, if they think that because of my age I'm finished - they are wrong. The same was thought by the people behind Santos Benavides, Breidis Prescott, Víctor Cayó, Norberto González and others who believed that it would be an easy victory for their fighters, and I beat them, and I will do the same to Omar Chávez. If he wants to reach something big, it will not be by using me as a springboard," said Garcia.

To get tickets for Omar Chavez (36-3-1, 24 KO's) vs. Roberto Garcia (40-3-0, 24 KO's), you can go online through the site www.globalticket.com.mx and in one week at the box office at the Nuevo Leon de Barragán Gym for fans interested in attending the function.

I think the plan is for Chavez to win so he can fight Margo next but Garcia isn't going to be a gimmie win. I wouldn't be surprised if Garcia gets the W
