Former WBC middleweight champ Julio Cesar Chavez is in his final days of training camp in México as he prepares for his 12-round super middleweight rematch against Bryan Vera from Texas on March 1(March 1).
Chávez Jr. – Vera II takes place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, and Chavez is looking forward to proving he is the better man following the controversial decision in the first fight.
“I have been training for four months for this fight because I need to be at my best to win this fight and win it in an impressive fashion. I must eliminate all doubts about the outcome,” said Chavez Jr at a media workout earlier this week.
"I know that I will be much better than the first fight. I believe that Bryan Vera will come very confident after what happened in our first fight which will make this fight much better than the first one and one that the fans will remember for a long time.
Chavez Jr added: "I owe the fans a great performance and that is what they will get on March 1 at th Alamodome and on HBO. I have had a lot of success in San Antonio and I look forward to going there and putting on a good show for them.
Regarding making weight for this highly anticipated rematch, Chavez Jr said: "I will make the 168 pound limit with no problem and I will be able to do the things I could not do in first fight. I will have better movement, I will be more consistent and I will fight 12 hard rounds if that is what it takes to win this second fight. Vera is a tough guy with a good chin, but I will do my best to send him home early.
"I know that we are fighting in his home state but inside the ring is just the two of us and the fans can stay in the stands and enjoy a great battle between two guys that will not give an inch in the ring.
