Major Update On Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s Next Fight
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (51-4-1) is back.
Chavez’s return to the boxing ring has been made official. He will be competing on the same card as his father. Chavez Sr. is set to meet fellow Mexican boxing legend Jorge Arce in an exhibition bout on September 25. On that same night, his son will collide with Mario Abel Cazares in a sanctioned professional fight. The action will take place in Tijuana, Mexico. It’ll be contested at 175 pounds.
The last time Chavez was seen in the boxing ring was back on December 20, 2019. He was stopped by Daniel Jacobs in the fifth round. Chavez decided he wasn’t going back out for the sixth round. He missed weight prior to the contest.
His opponent, Cazares, has a perfect pro boxing record of 11-0. Cazares last fought Eduardo Tercero back on December 15, 2019. He scored the knockout victory over Tercero. It’s the fifth knockout victory of his career.
The event in Tijuana will be held for charity. The aim is to assist families in need in Tijuana and Hermosillo. One way of accomplishing this goal is to provide scholarships in an effort to help children who are battling addiction. The card will also showcase bouts featuring Omar Chavez and Karim Arce.
