If I could only borrow the eyes of boxing judges’ Gwen Adair, Carla Caiz and Martha Denkin so that I will understand how they scored the fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Brian Vera. I just don’t understand how.
Chavez escaped a unanimous decision win on Saturday night’s HBO main event, at the StubHub Center, Carson, California after 10 rounds of supposed to be 163 pounds contracted weight limit. Then later on was changed to 165–these weights still under the super middleweight range. But again changed to 173 pounds–two pounds short to reach the light heavyweight limit.
This is the weight issues of Chavez prior to the fight.
Vera clearly the underdog in size so with power, I supposed. But was able to established enough difference between who won and who lost in the fight, which were not determined by our judges.
I thought the Mayweather-Canelo was the last controversial judging that will happen this September, which started early this month, with Beltran-Burns fight. I’m mistaken.
After all, this is what Vera could say in his tweet on tweeter, “I appreciate all the love and support… I did everything I could possibly to do win. At the end of the day I’m happy with my performance”
What to do? This is what it is man!
I appreciate all the love and support… I did everything I could possibly to do win. At the end of the day I’m happy with my performance
