Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Chavez Jr Calling People Out Already??? “Desperate” To Redeem Himself?

On twitter this morning I came across a tweet from Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-2-1, 32ko) that simply read,

@jcchavezjr vs @MartinMurrayBox next?”

It took me by surprise anyway! Barely 10 days on from the embarrassing “quit” episode against Andrzej Fonfara, and the scathing online criticism of his performance, Chavez Jr seems to be seeking a chance at retribution.

Brits will be more than familiar with Martin Murray (29-2-1, 12ko), who we last saw bravely take GGG 11 rounds before finally being stopped. American’s will most probably be aware of him from his two world title challenges. Continue reading

Andrzej Fonfara Stops Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Confident and determined, Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara (27-3, 16 KOs) spoiled the ring return of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) in resounding fashion Saturday night, flooring the former middleweight champion one time en route to a one-sided ninth-round TKO in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING live on SHOWTIME.

Fonfara, of Chicago by way of Radon, Poland, dropped Chavez, of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, with a wide left hook 50 seconds into the ninth round before a boisterous crowd of 8,636 predominately-Chavez fans at StubHub Center. It was the first time in 52 professional fights that Chavez had hit the canvas from a punch. Continue reading

Fonfara destroys Julio Cesar Chavez Jr

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr’s career took a major hit tonight with him getting stopped at the end of the 9th round by the big punching light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (27-3, 16 KOs) in their fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Fighting at a catch-weight of 172 pounds, Chavez Jr. was shockingly dropped the 9th round by Fonfara. Chavez Jr. was really hurt to the extent that he wasn’t going to be able to recover after the round ended. In between rounds, Chavez Jr. quit on his stool instead of coming out for the 10th and taking more punishment.

Fonfara was deducted a point in the 7th for the use of his shoulder. It was kind of a petty foul to be called by the referee Jerry Cantu, but thankfully the point deduction didn’t have any effect on the result of the fight. Continue reading

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in must win situation on 18th April

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr was once a top contender, and even a good champion. In 2011, he won his 43rd contest and captured the WBC world middleweight title from the previously unbeaten Sebastian Zbik. He would then make 3 consecutive defences before taking on Sergio Martinez, and losing.

In the fight with Martinez he went in with a record of 46-0-1 but was really dominated in the fight. Martinez was simply the better man in every department and the only thing that went Chavez Jr’s was a knockdown in the twelfth round. Continue reading

Froch still on course to face Chavez Jr

Rob McCracken, the trainer for IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs), says that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-1-1, 32 KOs) is still a target for them for their next fight. McCracken says that they’re in talks with Chavez Jr for a fight. This is news because Chavez Jr’s promoter Bob Arum recently said that there is no Chavez Jr-Froch fight.

This means that if Froch’s promoter is having talks with Chavez Jr about a fight, then they’re doing it without Arum’s Top Rank company being part of the talks. If Arum and Top Rank aren’t going to be involved then it’s unknown if a fight between Chavez Jr and Froch can take place. Continue reading
