Chavez Jr. out til 2016 fractured left hand

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.'s left hand was fracture in his last fight against Marcos Reyes @ Don Haskins Convention Center, El Paso, Texas, USA. The injury was more serious then thought. He was scheduled to have surgery Thursday to repair the fracture. He was hoping to get back in action lat this Fall but now he needs another three more months to recover. This will likely push Chavez Jr.'s return back to 2016.

"I was supposed to be back in the gym by the end of this month, but the hand kept bothering me, and I was referred to this doctor, who evaluated me again and told me that surgery was necessary, which changes my plans, but I hope to come out of this stronger," Chavez said.
