Chavez Jr. injured!

Undefeated super welterweight contender and The Son of The Legend, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., has been forced off the card for the upcoming “Latin Fury 10” due to a training camp injury. “Latin Fury 10” will proceed as scheduled headlined by the two world championship fights featuring undefeated #1 super featherweight contender Urbano Antillon (26-0, 19 KOs) and top ten contender Miguel “Aguacerito” Acosta (25-9-2, 19 KOs) battling for the vacant WBA interim lightweight title and WBA light flyweight champion Giovani Segura (20-1-1, 16 KOs) defending his title against Sonny Boy Jaro (30-7-5, 19 KOs).

Chavez Jr. (39-0-1, 29 KOs) suffered a rib injury last Wednesday during training camp in Big Bear.
