The 27-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) weighed 172.4 pounds and the 31-year-old Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) went 171.2 pounds.
Chavez and Vera were slated to battle on September 7 at the Staples Center in Tinseltown.
Unfortunately, “The Son of the Legend” suffered a cut above his right eye during a summertime sparring session and was deemed unfit to box.
Chavez last exited the squared circle in September 2012 as a unanimous decision loser to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight king Sergio Martinez.
Comparatively, Vera most recently left the ring on March 29 with a controversial seventh round TKO victory over Donatas Bondorovas.
Although excessive rest often causes rustiness, Chavez should be fresh and ready to throw fists.
Plus, despite possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s, the popular Mexican is surely motivated following such a long layoff.
Accordingly, expect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to finish Brian Vera within eight rounds roughly 21 hours from now.by
