In his first title defense, “Son of the Legend” and WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (44-0-1, 31 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over former Contender winner Peter Manfredo Jr (37-7, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas. In one of his best performances, Chavez was in command the whole way and got the stoppage from referee Laurence Cole in round five after rocking Manfredo and following up with a barrage of unanswered punches. Time was 1:52. After the fight, Chavez Jr. said he fears no one and will fight whoever his promoter says including Sergio Martinez and Canelo Alvarez.
