The fight will take @ Gimnasio Nuevo Leon Unido Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and air live on Mexico Azteca & USA beIN Sports en Espanol.

This is a fight that both fighters need to prove that their careers still have some life left. They are looking to make a statement and move up once again to fight some top level guys. Chavez hopes that a victory over Garcia will bring him closer to a title shot at 154 pounds. Its Chavez most dangerous fight of his career.

Omar Chavez fought this past April against Ramon Alvarez winning by a TKO in round two. He has three loses on his record, Ramon Alvarez, and twice to Jorge Paez Jr . He started his professional career in 2006 that looked very promising until his lost again Jorge Paez Jr in 2011. This seemed to have triggered a couple of questionable fights. Chavez lost again to Jorge Paez Jr in 2012. After seeming to bounce back fighting a few decent names like Joachim Alcine & Daniel Sandoval. His last fight in a rematch with Alvarez he scored a spectacular stoppage.

Roberto Garcia is on a 12 consecutive win streak since 2010 when he lost to Antonio Margarito. Before the Margarito he had not lost since 2004. Roberto Garcia is a dangerous puncher that can end a fight quickly.
