Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) will fight the 31-year-old Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) on September 28 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
The two prizefighters were initially slated to battle September 7 at the Staples Center in Tinseltown.
Unfortunately, Chavez suffered a cut above his right eye a few weeks ago during a sparring session and was deemed unfit to box.
“I’m very excited to be coming back. It’s like a dream. I’ve been thinking about the comeback and it’s finally here and it’s a reality now,” said Chavez, 27, who last exited the squared circle in September 2012 as a unanimous decision loser to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight king Sergio Martinez. “I see this as the beginning of the second part of my career, I’m coming with everything, very motivated. I’m going to show everyone that I want to be the best fighter in the world pound-for-pound.”
Reportedly set to make the 168-pound limit with ease, a “very motivated” Chavez will batter the 2007 participant in “The Contender” reality series.
After manhandling Vera, as ordered by the WBC, Chavez is tentatively scheduled to again throw fists with veteran bruiser Marco Antonio Rubio for the interim middleweight title.
In their first match in February 2012, “The Legend Continues” universally outscored the 33-year-old Rubio (57-6-1, 49 KOs).
Despite possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s, the former middleweight titlist will overwhelm Brian Vera in roughly a month.
Subsequently, expect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to trump Marco Antonio Rubio for a second time in the spring.by
