WTF, is the only response in the stadium and on social media when the scores was annocned for this fight. After ten rounds in which former middleweight champion and son of the legend Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (47-1-1, 32 KOs) looked slow, lethargic and was just plain inactive, he was awarded a highly controversial unanimous decision over WBO #1 middleweight Brian Vera (23-7, 14 KOs) in a non-title ten rounder fought at a catch weight of 173lbs. on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Scores were 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94. Vera threw and landed more punches as he scored multi-punch combinations to the head and body of the stationary Chavez Jr. Despite landing the harder punches including devastating right hands to the chin and left hooks to the body, Chavez Jr spent more time complaining of low blows and head butts than scoring as Vera just kept punching. Chavez Jr mentioned that he fractured his hand in the fifth round.
