El Malo Returns: Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. Defeats Bryan Vera By Unanimous Decision

****

Somehow Vera, now 23-8 with 14 knockouts, stood up to the punishment and returned fire as often as possible. It was another gutsy performance by a fighter whose limited skill is overshadowed most of the time by his incredible heart and determination. As a member of the scuffling underclass that makes up most of boxing, Vera has the kind of hunger that can serve as an equalizer against an opponent with an edge in talent. Unfortunately for Vera, desire was not enough to slow down Chavez, who looked like he was in peak condition for the first time since he demolished Andy Lee almost two years ago.
