Chavez (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs), who constantly landed overhand rights, officially trumped Vera (23-8, 14 KOs) by scores of 114-113, 117-110 and 117-110.
"I made a better fight this time and we won more clearly. I proved to all the people I'm a better fighter than Bryan Vera,” said Chavez, 27, who was overweight and listless in their original bout in September. "(As for Golovkin), I like the fight because Gennady Golovkin is a great, strong fighter. I'd like to fight Gennady Golovkin next.”
The 31-year-old Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) last exited the squared circle on February 1 after successfully defending the WBA and IBO middleweight belts with a seventh round TKO victory over Osumanu Adama.
Golovkin, the recorder of 16 consecutive knockouts, floored the 33-year-old Adama (22-4, 16 KOs) in the first and sixth rounds.
Sensing a beaten man, “GGG” mercilessly stalked Adama and again bullied the challenger to the canvas with a savage hook in the seventh frame.
Referee Louis Pabon compassionately halted the lopsided beating at 1:20 of the decisive round.
A punishing, ferocious and accurate slugger, Golovkin has never been toppled in over 375 scraps.
In stark contrast to the Kazakh bruiser, Chavez Jr. is notorious for possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s.
Born into wealth, Chavez has been pinched juicing, arrested driving drunk, and suspended for a positive marijuana test over the past four years.
Strictly because “The Son of the Legend” is blessed with cement fists and a granite chin, a match pitting Chavez Jr. against Golovkin would be intriguing.
Irishman Andy Lee is tentatively slated to get knocked onto Queer Street by Golovkin on April 26 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Subsequently, perhaps at some point in the autumn, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. may learn to rue the words, “I'd like to fight Gennady Golovkin next.”
