Saturday September 28, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Bryan Vera and Adonis Stevenson vs. Tavoris Cloud in a big double-header. HBO World Championship Boxing Chavez vs Vera airs live this Saturday, September 28 with a fight time of 10:15 p.m. ET / PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion.
The selling point behind Saturday's intriguing main event is the return of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. The highly talented, highly frustrating Chavez makes his return to the ring after his 2012 battle with Sergio Martinez. It's been a tough road back here, with a drug suspension, change in training camps, and weight issues that even now threaten to derail Saturday's fight. Which all sadly feel par for the course for Chavez these days.
Here, rather than focus on those issues (we'll do that later), let's focus on the boxing with a look at Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.'s Greatest Hits.
Featured in this video is Chavez's close fight against Sebastian Zbik, his KO of Peter Manfredo, the 2012 win over Marco Antonio Rubio, and the KO of Andy Lee that I think stands as his best performance to date. Interestingly, you also have his last fight - the bout with Sergio Martinez. Eleven rounds of that fight were anything but a "Greatest Hit" for Chavez, but his oh-so-close to a miracle comeback in round 12 may go down as the defining moment of his career. If you want to relive those epic 3 minutes, you can watch the full Sergio Martinez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Round 12 right here.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow Saturday night for HBO Boxing Chavez vs Vera live fight night coverage.
