JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ RUMORS

Weekend Afterthoughts On Nonito Donaire, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., More

When’s the last time we had any Weekend Afterthoughts around here? Maybe enough time to let neogrunge fashion become a thing. This past weekend had few U.S. televised fights of any note, with most of the most meaningful fights off TV. There was this knockout by Amir Imam of Fernando Angulo, which has the final visuals of a major knockout and dynamic of a momentous knockout for...

Chavez Jr. Wins In Lackluster Fashion

TEXAS — Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. continue his boxing journey with a win over Marcos Reyes. A win yes but, something to write home about? Definitely not.
