Chavez-Vera faceoff at the final presser

At the final presser for Chavez Jr.-Vera both fighters spoke to the media and posed for photos. After that they did interviews with the media. Ronnie Shields the trainer for Vera was not to happy with Chavez Jr.'s weight issue. Bryan Vera on the other hand was on weight which was at 167. In the end both fighters agree to come in at 173 pounds to make the fight happen rather than having it get canceled. Imagine if the Vera camp decides to cancel the bout. If they did that, lots of fans and media would be upset about that. Especially me, because I was looking forward to seeing Chavez's comeback after serving a 9 month suspension due to a positive post fight drug test against his fight with Sergio Martinez.
Here is me asking Ronnie Shields about Bryan Vera and before that he talked about Chavez Jr.'s weight issue.
Next one is my quick interview with Joesph Agbeko.
Finally here is my interview with Jose Ramirez.
Overall, the final press conference was really chill. I was at first kind of scared to ask Ronnie my question because he looked upset regarding Chavez Jr.'s weight issue. But when I decided to ask him my question, I went for it and ask him. Looking forward to September 28, 2013.
