Chavez Jr. defeated Vera last weekend at the StubHub Center in Carson, California on a controversial scorecard decision.
The location in Texas has not been determined, but San Antonio looks to be the front runner for this event. Lester Bedford, the man who has been instrumental in bringing major boxing events to Texas, says San Antonio is the best venue for this event. Dallas and Houston have the NFL right now and Austin has college football going on.
For Vera, he was clearly robbed of win and deserves a rematch. Having the rematch in Texas makes sense, Vera lives in Austin and Chavez is popular in Texas. The value in having the fight in Texas would make this match neutral territory from a fight stand point.
HBO reported that the fight last weekend had a draw of 1.416 million viewers, making it the largest viewed fight this year.
The fact is this, this fight must happen and it must be done right to settle the score. Vera deserves to win or lose fairly, Chavez needs this fight to move forward.
