Despite losing to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Marcos Reyes was still confident that he won the fight Saturday night by outboxing Chavez Jr. At times Reyes looked like he was fairing well against the bigger fighter but size and weight seemed to be the downfall of Reyes throughout the fight.
"I feel I won the fight. I showed him how I box," Reyes said. "I made the weight at 168 and he didn't make weight. He's like a light heavyweight fighting a middleweight.
"I was against all odds - the referee, the weight, everything. I think I won the fight. He came in at like 200 pounds. I was at 174, just a few pounds from what I weighed yesterday. It's OK - I did my best."
