The so-called middleweight in a heavyweight body, Julio Cesar Chavez, JR., 47-1-1, 32 KO’s, got a victory in one of the worst decisions in boxing history. Bryan Vera, 23-7, 14 KO’s, clearly won this fight, but the judges, all of which may have been on the take, seriously, and scored it 96-94, 97-93 and 98-92 for Chavez JR. This was absolutely disgusting. Chavez JR is given a pass on the policies of boxing because of his name and this gift decision is another example. He comes into his 160 pound weight limit fights well over the limit, giving him an advantage over his opponents.
Chavez JR complained the entire fight about “low blows” that were not low and complained after the fight was over. Boxing takes another blow here as yet another terrible decision proves the better man is not allowed to win. For the record, RSR had it 98-92 for Vera…the rightful winner.
