Julio Cesar Chavez v Andy Lee – preview

Posted: June 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

WBC World Middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez will defend his title against Irishman Andy Lee on Saturday evening.

Mexican hero Chavez, son of the legend, makes the third defence of the title against the tough Irishman at the Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas.

The 26-year-old from Culiacan is unbeaten in 47 fights and has made two exciting defences against Marco Antonio Rubio and Peter Manfredo.

Lee, originally from Limerick, is now based in Detroit, USA, where he is trained by Emmanuel Steward at  Kronk Gym.

With only one loss on his 29-fight record to Brian Vera, which he avenged last year, Lee is unbeaten in a 13 fight run that includes inflicting the first loss on Scottish rival Craig McEwan’s career. 

With a combined record of 73-1-1 (51 KOs), a winning percentage of 97% and a victory by knockout ratio of 70% it’s set to be an explosive fight.
