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.

It looks like former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) will be finishing up his preparation for his forthcoming bout against Brian Vera (23-6, 14 KO’s) out of the Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The news came courtesy of welterweight prospect Chase “Checkmate” Corbin shortly after he finished sparring six rounds with the Mexican star.

Corbin has been a fixture around the Las Vegas scene for a few years after relocating from Philadelphia in late 2009. Working under the guidance of trainer Jeff Mayweather, Corbin (8-0, 7 KO’s) is a lanky boxer-puncher who has been involved in some memorable gym battles at the Mayweather Boxing Club and other locales in the city.

However, when sparring with Chavez, Corbin admitted that the classic bout between his fellow Philadelphian Meldrick Taylor and Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. was in the back of his mind.
