The Stats - Julio Cesar Chavez Jr Vs Brian Vera 2

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (47(32)-1(0)-1) - Height 6'1'' - Reach 73'' - 28 years old
Brian Vera (23(14)-7(2)-0) - Height 5'11'' - Reach 73'' - 32 years old

A number of high level rematches are taking place this year, one of those being Julio Cesar Chavez Jr taking on Brian Vera on March 1 for the second time after winning a close fight on points in September last year.

Cesar Chavez Jr has had an impressive career to date, winning a world middleweight strap in 2011 and defending it three times before losing to Sergio Martinez by unanimous decision, despite dropping the pound-4-pound rated Argentine.

Vera has had a mixed career, suffering several loses between 2007 and 2011, before getting back on track with three solid wins before the Cesar Chavez Jr loss.

Vera has been stopped twice but not since 2008 and both times he was up against very heavy handed opponents. Cesar Chavez Jr has an impressive ko% rate but he has avoided big names for most of his career and he hasn't looked as destructive against more talented opposition.
