Brian Vera has ‘to be better’ against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Speaking to World Boxing News on Tuesday, Brian Vera said he has “to be better” against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in their upcoming rematch.

The 27-year-old Chavez (47-1-1-1, 32 KOs) and Vera (23-7, 14 KOs) will fight for a second time on March 1 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

In their original bout in September, Chavez won a controversial unanimous decision over Vera.

Chavez was overweight and listless and many onlookers felt Vera deserved to triumph on the cards.

“I know I won the fight,” said Vera, 32, who in 2007 participated in “The Contender” reality series.

“I controlled the ring and backed Chavez up the entire fight. The public was very positive towards me and they are the reason I got this rematch with Chavez. I have gained a lot of fans since the first fight. The public knew I won the fight and that’s very important to me. As far as the rematch, what people can expect is a determined Bryan Vera. I was good the last fight but this fight I have to be better.”

Born into wealth, Chavez has been pinched juicing, arrested driving drunk, and suspended for a positive marijuana test over the past four years.

Despite possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s, “The Son of the Legend” is blessed with cement fists and a granite chin.

Although Vera is tough and brimming with testicular fortitude, it’s hard to envision that Chavez will have another substandard performance versus a journeyman pugilist.

Accordingly, expect “a determined” Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to rebound and knock Brian Vera onto Queer Street roughly 11 days from now.
