After a possible fight with Martin Murray fell through, former WBC middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) will face Brian Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) in a bout contracted at 165 pounds. The question is when and where? Initially the fight looked pretty solid to land at the new Mexico City Arena on August 3, in fact “presale” tickets have already been sold for that date. However there is now a possibility that Chavez-Vera could end up at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 7. A final decision should be nailed down by next week.
