Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. weighed in at 172.4 lbs., for his bout against WBO #1 middleweight Bryan “King of the Upset” Vera on Friday afternoon at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Vera scaled in at 171.2.

The fight was originally contracted at 168 lbs., but Chavez, coming off a year out of the ring, had problems making the weight, and organizers arranged for a new maximum weight of 173.
