Middleweight contender David Lemieux (39-3, 33 KOs) tried his best to score a quick knockout over high level journeyman Marcos Reyes (35-5, 26 KOs) tonight, but it failed to happen so he had to settle for winning a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision on Saturday night on the undercard of the Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A very heavy looking Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (49-2-1, 32 KOs) put in an uneven performance in beating Marcos Reyes (33-3, 24 KOs) by a 10 round unanimous decision on Saturday night in Chavez Jr’s bounce back fight at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. Chavez Jr. lost his last fight to Andrze Fonfara last April. But Chavez Jr. had nothing to fear tonight in dragging a weak-punching middleweight in 27-year-old Reyes up to super middleweight in order to enjoy a weight advantage.
Chavez Jr. was cut over his left eye in the 9th round from a clash of heads. After being cut, Chavez Jr. marched around the ring complaining about the head-butt until the referee took a cut and took a point away from Reyes. It looked very strange; as if the referee did this in response to Chavez Jr’s complaining rather than doing it based on what he felt was the right thing to do.
