Julio Cesar Chavez Jr Next Fight vs Marco Reyes

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr Next Fight vs Marco Reyes

Saturday night marks the return to the ring of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2, 32KO's) as he takes on Marco Reyes (33-2, 24KO's). In his last outing, Chavez Jr. was stunned at the hands of Andrjz Fonfara in a fight that left many questioning not only his potential as a fighter, but also his dedication and ability to remain prominent amongst a division full of budding stars. From day one, critics viewed Chavez Jr. as a "built up" fighter, living off the name and efforts of his Father who was able to reach legendary status in the sport. Eager to create his own legacy, Chavez Jr. was able to rack up a record of over 40 victories in a row, each coming against greatly inferior talent.

Hit or miss, one thing you get in a Chavez jr fight is a ton of action, as the warrior spirit of his Father is ever present each time he enters the ring. Both tough and extremely durable, rarely will you lose interest when he enters the ring. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Reyes will be no different, as most experts expect fireworks from the very first bell to the very last. Boxing betting odds have Chavez Jr. as the lead on favorite, but is there a chance of upset when the two square off that those experts aren't talking of? Reyes will enter the ring under the radar with very little promotional support, which has many looking down the road at Cesar Chavez Jr.'s next fight, which is already being set up as a big one.

If the past is any indication, all bets are off until he handles business here, as Chavez jr. has shown in the past that he can arrive very flat in the ring when his opponent isn't considered to be a great threat. Not too long ago, the Mexican warrior picked up a DUI during training camp, and was also cited for smoking pot in another camp. Such occurrences have led to the continued perspective of his critics that perhaps Chavez Jr. is content making self supporting paydays that do very little else for him in the sport.

Saturday night, Chavez jr. will aim to change that yet again, and knowing that his days of big paydays against limited opposition are soon to come to an end, perhaps we can expect fireworks from him. Typically, Chavez jr. starts out fast and despite slowing up down the stretch, he has always found a way to keep his competitive edge and fight til the end. That warrior spirit is why he remains one of the biggest attractions on the Mexican fight fan landscape, despite his many critics.

When the bell rings, it would be wise to expect the same thing. A Chavez jr fight will always be high in action, even if it is (for whatever reason) low in quality opposition. This fight will be no different. Chavez jr. will come out with guns blazing, eager to make an early impact in the mind of his opponent. Reyes won't lay down, so without question, fans can expect a fire fight to play out until some starts to wear down. It'll be a battle of attrition with both men going hard until one is unable to go any more. If you're putting money on it, the safe pick is Chavez jr on points, although he could very well get the late stoppage. Reyes is pretty durable, so he may not go easy.
