That’s going to be a tough ask for the boxing public to pay to see Chavez Jr. and Vera do it again after the controversy of their fight last Saturday night in Carson, California. Arum might have to really stack the undercard to entice boxing fans to want to pay to see Chavez Jr. and Vera do it again.
If the fans had faith that Vera would get a fair shot at winning the fight this time, they might be open to paying to see the fight. But last Saturday, the card stacked against Vera in a huge way with the weigh-in for the fight going from 162 to 173 lbs., and then Vera getting the shaft from the three judges with them giving Chavez Jr. the win.
