what the **** are people talking about.... chavez has no pop whatsoever, he can't punch.... he's huge... sure.... but he's never stopped growing since turning pro.... so he basically turned pro too young and never let himself grow and mature…

i give Chavez credit for fixing the weight issues but this being a world championship fight is a joke...ive seen kids at my gym wit more defensive skills than both guys...should be a good scrap though both are club fighters

[QUOTE=.::|ULTIMATE|::.;11444831]Chavez Jr. looks solid and has lots of pop. He is going to win a stoppage imo.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't say he has lots of pop. Not at 160. Perhaps a little heavy handed.

This is good fight. It'll be competitive and will have good action. Jr. has a solid chin and is a decent pressure fighter, but he doesn't have the skills, power, or strength to make Manfredo clam up and his defense…
