Chavez makes weight

 

Bob Arum was exasperated even before he came to San Antonio this week and finished off the promotion for today’s super middleweight rematch between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Bryan Vera (6:45 p.m., HBO). “I am past being able to analyze and figure out Junior,” the promoter complained. There are still plenty of questions about Chavez, who won their first fight in a controversial decision. He has had his career stall with one fight in the last 17 months along with one drug suspension (marijuana) and one DUI since 2012. Chavez made the 168-pound limit at Friday’s weigh-in, and avoided forfeiting $250,000 from his purse to Vera. –AP
