Chavez Jr vs Vera II set for March 1

ESPN's Dan Rafael has reported that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Brian Vera is a go for March 1st at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. The fight will be televised by HBO. The contracted weight is 168 and a 250K fine will be set if Chavez Jr comes in overweight. The first fight provided a circus to the fans as the rescheduled bout jumped from what was originally a contracted 160 fight, to 168, and then days before the fight 173. If the prefight antics weren't enough to set the fans off in a frenzy, the controversial conclusion to the bout put on the final uproar as Chavez Jr found himself on the positive side of a controversial win. Many saw Vera dominating the fight. The controversy of both the prefight, and fight, in their first meeting should provide some good hype as they are set to meet again.
