Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was looking spectacular with his decision win against Bryan Vera on Saturday night at the Alamodome. Chavez decisively outslugged Vera in a brutal super middleweight rematch, reported ESPN on March 2, 2014. Chavez, who is a former middleweight titleholder, won a well fought unanimous decision in this rematch with Vera.
Five months ago Chavez had won a highly controversial decision in a fight in which Chavez was clearly out of shape and had to pay Vera six figures to agree to a weight limit increase from 168 to 173 pounds. In this 10 round bout on Sept. 28, 2013, most observers thought Vera was the winner. However, the judges had it by shocking scores of 98-92, 97-93, 96-94 and even Chavez's own fans booed this decision.
In the second time around against Vera, Chavez Jr. looked more like his Hall of Fame father than ever, reports USA Today on March 2, 2014. The 28-year-old former middleweight champion from Mexico left no doubt who the better fighter was in this rematch. Chavez came away from the 12-round super middleweight non-title fight with an indisputable unanimous decision, while his famous father was sitting ringside as a broadcaster. Chavez says this time he clearly proved he is a better fighter than Vera.
