Colonna: Fonfara-Chavez Jr will be a brutal fight

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“Sometimes Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. don’t make weight, they fine him and he’s content with that. I wish he would make weight for April 18. It’s not about the money right here. I know he’ll get a big fine if he doesn’t make it but if we have to make this 172 mark, I want him to make it.” said Sam Colonna, trainer of Andrzej Fonfara (26-3, 15 KOs), who faces former WBC middleweight champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (46-1, 32 KOs) on April 18 in a Showtime-televised bout at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
