Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Reacts To Loss Against Mario Cazares
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. doesn’t agree with the decision of his bout with Mario Cazares.
On Friday, September 25, Chavez Jr. and Cazares shared the boxing ring in Tijuana, Mexico. Chavez was hoping to rebound from his TKO loss to Daniel Jacobs back on December 20, 2019. It wasn’t meant to be.
Chavez complained of a cut above his eye caused by an accidental headbutt. As a result, the score totals were read early before the sixth round could end. All three judges had Cazares up in the fight at this point, so he was awarded the technical decision.
After the bout, Chavez expressed his dismay with the decision (via BoxingScene.com).
“I don’t know what he beat me with, I don’t know what they saw. He’s a guy who didn’t come to fight. I was putting my face on him, saying: ‘come fight me, hit me’, he didn’t even attack me.”
With the loss, Chavez’s pro boxing falls to 51-5-1, 1 NC. He hasn’t won a bout since August 10, 2019. That was a first-round knockout victory over Evert Bravo. As for Cazares, he improves his pro boxing record to 12-0.
