Saturday March 1, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Bryan Vera II. HBO World Championship Boxing Chavez vs. Vera II airs live on HBO this Saturday, March 1, with a fight time of 9:45 p.m. ET / PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.

This rematch stems from one of the most controversial fights of 2012. That fight started with a ridiculous series of changes to the weight limit in order to accommodate Chavez, and ended with a Chavez split decision win that virtually every observer felt was a robbery. There's no question that the lack of discipline shown by Chavez in recent years has burned his bridges with many boxing fans - expect Vera to be the big favorite with fans here. The lead-up to this rematch has been, thankfully, much more straightforward, with none of the now to be expected Chavez drama. Expect this to be a hard hitting fight made more exciting by the passionate response of the fans.

Opening the HBO broadcast will be Orlando Salido vs. Vasyl Lomachenko in an incredibly intriguing fight. It's hard to envision a 1-0 boxer facing the tough veteran Salido, much less being favored by many in that fight, but then again, it's tough to envision many fighters of Lomachenko's caliber. The two time Olympic gold medalist is taking an insane step up in his professional career here. If he can beat Salido (and that's a very real possibility), he'll be one of the top boxers in the world after just 2 fights.

CHAVEZ VS. VERA FIGHT CARD:

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1; 32 KOs) vs. Bryan Vera (23-7; 14 KOs) - Super Middleweight (168 lbs)

Orlando Salido (40-12-2; 28 KOs) vs. Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0; 1 KO) - Featherweight (126 lbs)

Bad Left Hook has the results:

Vera (23-8, 14 KO) was as game as ever, and took some really big shots from Chavez (48-1-1, 32 KO) over the course of tonight's fight, always moving forward in his normal style, but this time around, Chavez was in better shape and able to keep a much crisper pace. He was clearly quicker out of the gates this time, and didn't fade much more than any fighter might over 12 rounds with this kind of two-way action.

Scores for the fight were 117-110, 117-110, and 114-113, with Vera deducted a point along the way, which ultimately didn't matter, but it was a point that didn't need to be taken by referee Rafael Ramos. BLH had it 115-112 for Chavez.
