Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Bryan Vera: Preview and Prediction for Upcoming Bout
Associated Press

On Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, tough Texan Bryan Vera gets his second shot at the legend's son, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., as the two meet in a rematch of their fight last September, which Chavez won by controversial unanimous decision. 

I consider that decision the second worst of 2013, trailing only Ricky Burns' draw with Raymundo Beltran. The once-extremely popular Chavez was booed loudly when the scores were announced. 

For the veteran Vera, a win will provide vindication and should secure him a world title shot. Chavez will meanwhile be looking to win decisively and make a statement, to prove he's more than an overhyped fraud getting by on his old man's reputation.
