The former middleweight Chavez Jr. flashed some of his explosiveness in spots but looked unfocused and low on energy after a year layoff. The crude but effective Vera took Chavez Jr.’s best punches and kept the pressure on the younger fighter from the opening bell. In the boxing news rumor mill, a possible Sergio Martinez vs Julio Cesar Chavez II bout on HBO Boxing has been proposed. Chavez Jr. is expected to be a 3 to 1 boxing betting underdog against Martinez, 49-2-2, 28 KO’s.

“Sugar” Shane Mosley looked sharp after a long layoff to outpoint top-20 contender Pablo Cesar Cano by scores of 115-113 on all three scorecards. Mosley vs Cano Fight Odds had Mosley as a 6 to 5 betting favorite. Mosley, 41, took a sound beating from #1 contender Canelo Alvarez 1-year ago but against Cano, 23, he was able to find his target with huge overhand rights and crunching left hooks. Cano showed a good chin and shook Mosley a few times with big left hands but he didn’t have enough speed to keep up. Cano faded down the stretch and ate too many big shots for a world-class contender. “Sugar” Shane looked very strong and wore down the young Mexican with debilitating body shots. Mosley improves to 47-8-1, 39 KO’s while Cano drops to 26-2-1, 20 KO’s . Wager on the Manny Pacquiao vs Brando Rios Fight Odds at BOVADA CASINO!!!!
