Bryan Vera: When I heard the score 98-92 I felt like I was gonna be robbed

“I think y’all know what happened,” said middleweight Bryan Vera following his controversial decision loss to “Son of the Legend” Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in Saturday night in Carson, California. “I think I won. I think I outboxed him. I think I outworked him inside and out. He caught me with a few shots because I was being so aggressive. I felt I had to be to win the fight here, where he’s somewhat from. He trains in LA and stuff, so I felt like it was more his hometown than mine. I felt I did enough to win. I’m just disappointed right now, but I’m just hoping we do it again.”

On fighting at a higher weight: “I felt like I was the bigger man and stronger because who was going back? I felt like I was putting the pressure on him. Nobody in here thought I wound be pushing him back, but I’m a warrior like they call me. You saw what you saw. I don’t have much to say about it.”

On the scoring: “When I heard the score 98-92 I felt like I was gonna be robbed. I just had a feeling. It made me sick to my stomach before they even said what was gonna happen.”

On a rematch: “I’d love to fight him again. My team wants to do it. I just think he’s not going to want to do it again.”
