CHAVEZ JR. GETS SPANKING FROM “NEW” DADDY
San Francisco, CA
Chavez Whacked By Fonfara
- Although Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
has some ability, he cannot beat up bigger men as Andrzej Fonfara
proved Saturday night when Fonfara from the start until the end, lit Chavez Jr. up like the White House Christmas Tree
in a light heavyweight (special weight 172 lb.) contest at the Stub Hub Center

“SON OF LEGEND” BEATEN UP BAD
Chavez’s only plus was Fonfara had a point taken for a “shoulder butt” by referee Jerry Cantu in the seventh. The Chavez Jr. low light for his devout Mexican fans was his whining to the referee because his own weight woes put him in with a natural bigger and obviously stronger guy.
LARRY MERCHANT PREDICTED UPSET
On “Ring Talk,” the Saturday edition, Larry Merchant picked Andrzej to upset Chavez Jr., taking into account the natural size (body mass) advantage Fonfara has and that he went the route with linear champ Adonis Stevenson in 2014. Post fight, the Hall of Famer said. “The fight went about the way I thought it would. At 160 he had a size advantage. What I can’t believe is that Jr. turned down a $10 million deal to fight Gennady Golovkin from Top Rank (Bob Arum).
AL HEYMON LOSES WITH CHAVEZ
Having cherry picked opponents for years, Chavez Jr., undisciplined, a middleweight (160) if he were semi-dedicated, had been as high as a rumored 215, before making 171 plus change Friday. Fonfara in the upset threw a wrench at a potential Chavez-Stevenson or any Chavez-Gennady Golovkin fight.
