Mario Cazares: It was a clean punch to the head

By Hesiquio Balderas

Against the odds, light heavyweight Mario Cazares defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr by technical unanimous decision in Tijuana, Mexico. There was controversy about the cut on Julio Jr’s eyebrow.

“Julio says that it was a headbutt. In reality, it was an uppercut that caused the gash on his eye,” stated Cazares. “I first landed the right hand and then the uppercut.

“More importantly, I knew that this was my big opportunity and I couldn’t pass it by. The result is due to discipline, hard work, and a great, solid team. I respect Julio Jr. He’s a very humble man and I offer my friendship. If I can do something for him, I will gladly do it.”

    Great Job, Mario. I am so proud of you.

    A+. You did not get the knock out I wanted, but a win is a win is a win.

  • So was the headbutt, but i found that quite hilarious being that it was at Chavez jr. Cazares cld have used that jab all night and i dont think Chavez wld have landed not even 1 punch. The jab was on point. That is for sure

  • Jr has changed. He seems like a boxer tired of 3-somes and now looking to go out with dudes with his hair and outfit. “Not that there is anything wrong with that.”–Seinfeld
