The 27-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) was initially slated to battle Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) September 7 at the Staples Center in Tinseltown.
Unfortunately, Chavez suffered a cut above his right eye last week during a sparring session and was deemed unfit to meet the 31-year-old Vera.
“It’s great that we were able to reschedule this fight in a timely manner,” Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti said. “Chavez-Vera should be an excellent fight in the ring. I know Vera has a big chip on his shoulder with the complications in getting this fight put together. Junior better bring his A-game to the ring that night.”
Reportedly set to make the 168-pound limit with ease, Chavez will “bring his A-game” and 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).
Chavez last exited the squared circle in September as a unanimous decision loser to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight king Sergio Martinez.
Despite possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s, the former middleweight titlist will overwhelm Brian Vera later next month.
Subsequently, expect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to trump Marco Antonio Rubio for a second time in the spring.by
