Due to a cut suffered by former WBC Middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., the twelve round Super Middleweight bout between Chavez Jr. and WBO number-one ranked Middleweight Bryan Vera has been pushed back to Saturday September 28th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The bout, which was originally announced for September 7th is promoted by Top Rank and Banner Promotions and will be seen live on HBO. Chavez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) suffered the cut earlier this week while sparring and forcing the bout to be moved back three weeks. Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) of Austin, Texas has been training intensely in Houston.
The fight between former Olympians Demetrius Andrade (19-0, 13 KOs) and Vanes Martirosyan (33-0-1, 21 KOs) for the vacant WBO Jr. Middleweight title WILL NOT take place on the September 28th card. Details on the rescheduled date for Andrade-Martirosyan clash will be announced shortly.
