Julio Cesar Chavez Jr Retains Title With 7th Round TKO
The fight began with Vegas flair including stretch limo’s and pyrotechnics.
Michael Buffer was there to get the crowd hyped but this crowd, a loud and rowdy crowd didn’t need Buffer or beer for that matter. They were ready.
When the fight started, it was an awkward and overdone sizing up by both fighters. Chavez Jr. took an extra round to get comfortable and Andy Lee won the first two rounds.
The 3rd round is when the fight started to change. Chavez Jr.’s plan was starting to come together. It was like watching a lumberjack chop down a tree with all the body shots he was throwing.
Chavez Jr reeled of the next 4 rounds and in the 7th, he was just to much for a winded and beaten Andy Lee.
After the fight, Chavez Jr thanked everyone in his camp along with HBO, Bob Arum (Top Rank) and the city of El Paso.
The only question left was “Does his dad now consider him a man?”, Everyone in the room looked toward a beaming Julio Cesar Chavez Sr and all he could do was smile and shake his head yes.
With the KO, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. goes to 46-0-1 (KO’s 32) and Andy Lee falls to 28-2 (20 KO’s).
