On July 18, 2015, Chavez, Jr. will stepping back into the ring after the whipping his received from Andrzej Fonfara to try and win the boxing world over again by putting on an impressive showing against Marcos Reyes.
Everything was fine up until the weigh-in of the fight when Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. failed to make the 170 pound catch-weight fight limit when he stepped on the scales yesterday. The fight is still scheduled to go on as planned, but it has to sting Chavez, Jr. just a little given how he let the boxing world know that he is more serious about boxing.
