Saturday night, HBO presented World Championship Boxing Chavez vs. Vera II. In the night's main event. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. took on Bryan Vera. The fight was a rematch from their highly controversial 2012 encounter. Chavez took that first fight with a terrible decision win after manipulating things in his favor through a series of pre-fight weight changes. In the rematch, both men had something to prove. For Chavez, a win was absolutely essential if he wanted to show that he was anywhere close to a contender. For Vera, it was a chance to right a wrong and get the win he felt he deserved last year.
