Chavez Jr vs Vera heads to 168

The scheduled fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Brian Vera on September 7th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles is going to be held at 168. Chavez Jr who usually fights at 160, will be making his first appearance as a super middleweight. Photos leaked last week of an overweight Chavez Jr possibly walking around over 200 pounds. Speculation arose after the sightings that Chavez Jr didn't seem to be training, and people were questioning whether or not he would be able to make 160 on September 7th. There was no reason given for the moving up in weightclass.
