On September 28, 2013 Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will be fighting Brian Vera at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California. The fight will air on HBO. The fight was originally suppose to take place on September 7, 2013 at Staples Center but Chavez Jr. had a small cut on his right eyelid during a sparring session. I attended the Chavez Jr.-Vera press conference on August 29, 2013 in Los Angeles. Both fighters spoke to the media and did one on one interviews with the media and the press. Also Oscar Valdez was at the press conference and I was able to do two interviews with him as well. I did my interviews with both fighters but for the Chavez one, I did a group interview in English. Chavez Jr. answered two of my questions during the group interview. I did interviews with Brian Vera and Oscar Valdez.
Here are the interviews from the press conference.

Overall I enjoyed the Chavez Jr.-Vera press conference. I look forward to attending the fight on September 28, 2013. Questions you have to keep in mind is How will Chavez, Jr. perform after his nine month suspension? If Chavez Jr. does win will be move up and fight Andre Ward who is calling him out? How will Chavez Jr. do without Freddie Roach in his corner since Coach Roach is busy training Miguel Cotto, then be heading out to the Philippines to train both Manny Pacquiao and Zou Shiming? These questions will be answered on September 28, 2013.
