Julio Cesar Chavez Jr
November 22, 2011 by staff
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. is the son of a legend. While Chavez, Jr. doesn’t have the mystique or the aura of his father, the young 25 year-old Mexicican is trying to establish his own legacy.
Obviously, HBO must like Chavez, Jr. because, not only did the network giant televise his title-winning effort against an unknown Sebastian Zbik to claim the WBC middleweight title in June, but also aired his first title defense.
Chavez, Jr., (44-0-1, 31 KOs) in front of a packed house at the Reliant Stadium, the home of the NFL’s popular Houston Texans, scorched Rhode Island native, Peter Manfedo, Jr. (37-7, 20 KOs) at 1:52 seconds of the fifth round last Saturday to retain his 160-pound belt.
Chavez, Jr. appeared much too powerful a puncher for Manfredo, a popular fighter from Rhode Island, who never really took his career to the next level as a serious contender in the sport. Manfedo has previous opportunities in recent years but was blown out by a now-retired Joe Calzaghe, knocked out at home by world title challenger Sakio Bika. Also, former world champion Jeff Lacy beat Manfredo with basically one arm when they fought.
