Tonight is the fight that nobody has been waiting for. Boxing’s version of Kim Kardashian will once again be showcased in an HBO main event. Brian Vera will get another opportunity to face the underachieving Julio Cesar Chavez jr. The fight is a rematch of possibly the worst decision of 2013. Neither man has the skill or resume to warrant an HBO main event. Luckily for jr though he posses the most important thing.. a famous last name.
Lets get right into it. This is a pointless rematch of a pointless match in 2013. Brian Vera easily outboxed the fat and unmotivated jr last year. No reason to expect anything different. That goes for the decision as well however. If Chavez finishes the fight with a pulse he will get the win. Chavez by robbery.
On the under-card Olympic Gold Medalist Vasyl Lomachenko challenges the rugged but limited Orlando Salido for his WBO featherweight title. Salido failed to make weight yesterday and will not be able to keep his title even if he is victorious. This is a tough fight to call considering Lomachenko’s lack of pro experience. Lomachenko should have enough to get by Salido, but he will have to gut through some shaky moments early on. Lomachenko by decision.
