Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) returns to the ring this Saturday night against hard-hitting Marco “Dorado” Reyes (33-2, 24 KOs) at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas.
The fight is part of a tripleheader and will be broadcast live on Showtime Championship Boxing at 10:00 pm, EST/7:00 pm, PST.
If their respective previous bouts are any indication of what viewers will see come Saturday night, both fighters have a lot to prove in what may be a classic Mexican brawl.
Chavez Jr. looks to bounce back from a TKO loss in April at the StubHub Center in Carson, California at the hands of Andrzej Fonfara. Since that defeat, Chavez Jr. has added former world champion and now veteran trainer Robert Garcia to his team as his lead trainer.
As important it is to note that Chavez Jr. has found a fitting coach, it’s also important to note that Reyes has been training with Boxing Hall of Fame trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain for this bout. Although Reyes won his most recent bout, he did it in unimpressive fashion and looks to add a different element to his game with Nacho in his corner.
Both fighters look to cement their names in the Super Middleweight division and have taken all measures necessary to accomplish that.
