Julio Cesar Chavez Jr returns July 20th on Tyson-Paul Card

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is set to make his boxing comeback on July 20, appearing on the highly anticipated Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson undercard in Texas, streamed on Netflix.

Chavez Faces MMA Veteran Darren Till

Chavez will square off against MMA veteran Darren Till, a former UFC title challenger. This matchup marks Chavez's first fight since his victory over David Zegarra in December 2021 in Culiacan. At 38 years old, Chavez (53-6-1, 34 KO) has struggled to remain relevant in the boxing world, especially following his notable defeat to Canelo Alvarez in 2017.

Chavez's Recent Performance

Since his loss to Alvarez, Chavez has maintained a mixed record of 3-3. His defeat to Daniel Jacobs in 2019, where he controversially quit after five rounds, sparked a minor fan riot in Phoenix. Promoter Eddie Hearn's efforts to revive Chavez's career have largely been forgotten. Chavez also faced losses to Mario Cazares in 2020 and MMA legend Anderson Silva in 2021. Despite these setbacks, Chavez's name still resonates with Mexican boxing fans, potentially boosting subscriptions for the event.

Darren Till's Boxing Debut

Darren Till, 31, will be making his boxing debut. The Liverpool native boasts an MMA record of 18-5, with his last fight ending in a loss to Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 282 in December 2022. This marked his third consecutive defeat and fifth loss in six fights.

Fight Details

Chavez vs. Till is scheduled for six rounds, either at cruiserweight or at a catchweight between light heavyweight and cruiserweight. This intriguing matchup adds to the excitement of an already star-studded undercard, promising fans an unforgettable night of combat sports action.
