Jacobs vs. Chavez Jr to be announced today

A December 20 clash between former middleweight champions Daniel Jacobs and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will be announced today in Los Angeles. The bout is rumored to headed to Arizona after Chavez received a temporary suspension in Nevada for declining to be sampled in a random VADA collection prior to agreeing to the fight. The clash is expected to be fought at the super middleweight limit.

  • This would be a great way to end 2019. I’m not sure the fight will go on because of Chave’z jr’s weight issues, but if it does happen, I believe Jacobs wins most likely by stoppage in the late rounds.

  • Jacobs is the fresher, more athletic, and proven fighter than Chavez Jr. Chavez Jr. never had the drive to be like his father as a boxer. Chavez Jr. thought he was more of an entitled fighter since his father’s background is in his DNA. Chavez Jr. enjoyed partying, talking big, and acting cool more than putting the work in the gym. Daniel Jacobs will batter Chavez Jr. all thru the fight with his counter punching. Wait and see…

  • I have never been particularly interested in Chavez Jr. fights, but to his credit, he already has a 16 year pro career. Lots of fights, but he lost practically every time he had top tier opposition. Why should this time be different?

    Jr. didn’t fight at all in 2018, and only once in 2017 and 2019 (a meaningless win against Evert Bravo, who was ranked somewhere between #300 and 500). In other words, he has been barely active for the past 3 years.

    Jacobs is still sharp and I can’t see him losing to Chavez Jr.

    Jacobs by KO in the late rounds.

  • Chavez jr has a gift. Well lots of gifts. Its unfortunate he has never used them due to lack of discipline, laziness and everything else u can think of. Having the dad he does, he cld have had the best camp in the world. Its too bad. But maybe the saying is true, that it skips a generation.. we will see

  • After the Chavez Jr gifted payday against Canelo may 2017 I thought fair enough he has earned one and Saul carrying him without trying to finish it. Now another against Jacobs the fine fighter …really ?
