Omar Chavez scores KO in return

Super middleweight Omar “The Businessman” Chavez (40-8-1, 27 KOs) returned to the ring Friday night after a little over a year since his last fight. The event took place in his and his father Julio’s native hometown of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Chavez stopped journeyman Javier Carrerra Tinajero (15-11, 12 KOs) in round seven of their scheduled for 10 round main event. Chavez controlled the action and landed the heavier punches. Carrerra was game and actually had a good round six as Chavez seemed to be tiring. Chavez gained a second wind late in round seven and begin to work over Carrerra in the latter’s corner prompting the corner to throw in the towel. The official stoppage time was 2:35 seconds of round seven.

  • Always thought Omar would be the better of the two brothers and do much better than he ended up doing. He just took things more serious. But he seems to not be as talented as I thought he could be.

    • I thought so too. Maybe the Nazareth fight damaged him mentally. Remember after the fight Nazareth went into a coma and later passed away from Injuries of their fight? This was when Omar was still undefeated. Do t k ow for sure but have to respect all who enter the ring and out their lives on the line.
