None of this was specifically an excellent program, yet the 46-year-old Silva’s unpleasant rhythms upset Chavez (52-6-1, 34 KO) severely. Chavez really did not toss sufficient, really did not land sufficient, and also Silva had the ability to regulate the pace and also location of the battle. It was a clear win for Silva, and also one more tumble down the ladder for Chavez, with due regard to a real battle sporting activities tale, a bona fider all-timer inAnderson Silva As level and also drab as Chavez was, Silva plainly took this seriously, involved win, and also won.

Via job interviewer Claudia Trejos, Chavez supposedly claimed it must have been a draw, which he really felt excellent. He suggested that he really feels at 35, with his job at the most affordable factor it’s ever before been, that he thinks he’s improving and also prepared to return quickly.
In all fact, any kind of appeal of or attraction with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is entirely gone. It’s simply really clear that he’s done as a competitor, has no actual decision once the bell rings any longer, and also he can not also be depended on to make weight. Ever before. Regardless of what the limitation. Chavez can miss out on weight at heavyweight in some way.
Ramon Alvarez UD-8 Omar Chavez
Ratings were 79-73, 80-73, 80-78. Omar (Julio’s “other” child in boxing) had not dealt with in 2 years and also really did not truly appear that purchased being right here, in all sincerity. He won the preliminary, once Ramon (Canelo’s bro) began starting, it was basically all Alvarez.
And also it was clear that Residence Alvarez took this trilogy combat a great deal extra seriously than Residence Chavez performed in prep work, and also throughout the battle. You can see Canelo passionately heckling his bro in between basically every round.
We scored this battle 78-74 for Alvarez (29-8-3, 16 KO), that simply had extra power and also decision. However Chavez (38-7-1, 25 KO) battled with a great deal of grit, as well.

There was some quirkiness late, where plainly both believed the 7th round– the very best of the battle– was completion. When it had not been, neither of them did a lot whatsoever in the 8th and also real last round.
Neither Omar neither Ramon have actually ever before been major challengers, yet they offered a hard battle right here, really enjoyable in places, worth seeing. Alvarez won the 2014 and also 2021 battles by decision, Chavez the 2017 center battle by 2nd round blockage. It’s not specifically mosting likely to drop as one of the terrific boxing trilogies, yet they offered what they had in this for certain, and also it was possibly the very best of their battles.

One court had it 96-94 for Mina, a 28-year-old from Ecuador that was taking a large action up right here and also plainly won the battle. That’s as close as you can fairly have actually scored it. The various other 2 had it 96-94 and also 95-94 for Sosa, the last card is really unusual since there was most definitely no 10-8 round in this battle. Mina (13-1, 7 KO) must have obtained a should have win and also a possibility to locate one more respectable battle. Rather, he obtained shafted after out-boxing Sosa (18-1, 10 KO) for most of the initial 8 rounds. Unquestionably, he extra made it through the last 2 than anything, he was quite faded therein, yet he did endure them. He won this battle. They burglarized him.
- Jorge Luis Melendez UD-8 Kevin Torres: A small trouble right here. Melendez (14-7-2, 8 KO) is a gatekeeper kind, and also he’s maintained a pair gateways. Torres (17-2-1, 14 KO) isn’t some terrific possibility or anything, yet was most definitely the A-side right here and also the preferred. Torres began well in the opening round, yet likewise obtained gone down, and also the 27-year-old Melendez simply harassed him for way too much of the battle, not allowing Torres, 24, construct any kind of heavy steam, and also defeating him to the strike a great deal of the moment.
