Garcia-Matthysse may clash with Chavez-Vera on September 7th

September 7th might be another one of those nights where boxing fans will be flipping the channels back and forth between HBO and Showtime. The return of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr against Brian Vera that was scheduled for August 3rd may be moving back for a second time to September 7th. The Chavez-Vera fight was orginally scheduled for June 22nd. This would be the second time it has been pushed back making it one year since Chavez Jr last stepped into the ring where he was defeated by Sergio Martinez. 


If the Chavez-Vera fight does move back to Septemeber 7th it will be going head to head with a junior welterweight showdown between champion Danny Swift Garcia and the hard hitting Lucas Matthysse. While the fight between Garcia and Matthysse isn't done yet, Schaefer has confirmed that he is confident the fight will be done and that September 7th is his day to do it.
