Once again, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has failed to make weight ahead of a highly-critical matchup vs. the very formidable Marcos Reyes. Chavez (48-2-1, 32 KO’s) and Reyes (33-2, 24 KO’s) agreed to a catch-weight limit of 169 pounds for their SHOWTIME-televised brawl, yet the son of the Mexican legend of the same name came in weighing 170.8 pounds.

Reyes was under the limit at 168.4 pounds, and despite Chavez not coming back to the scale to attempt to make the weight, the fight will still push forward. Check out the photos below for more photos.
