Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. warms up during media day amidst the weight controversy surrounding Vera bout

Exclusives updates from the Azteca Boxing Club in Bell, CA as former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) warms up during his media day ahead of his clash with Brian Vera this Saturday night.

Word leaked on Tuesday afternoon that Chavez mentioned he would not be able to make the contracted weight of 168 pounds for the Vera fight, as he stated he could only come in as low as 173 pounds. This news didn’t sit too well with Vera’s team, including his trainer Ronnie Shields.
