Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (44-0-1, 30 KO) faces Peter Manfredo (37-6, 20 KO) this Saturday evening at Reliant Arena in the Houston, Texas.
With HBO broadcasting the fight and Chavez's WBC middleweight (160 lbs) title on the line, a great show can be guaranteed as the 25-year-old son of a legend plans to make a name for himself.
Manfredo is a 30-year-old slugger with a hell of a career. He plans to give it his all against Chavez Jr and vows to retire if he cannot beat him. Strong words, but this is boxing.
Let's see if he lives up to them.
