Fight Hub’s Marcos Villegas reports that regardless of having fun with the most important weight allowance of his skilled profession, Julio Cesar Chavez got here in at 184 kilos for his 182-pound match with former UFC champion Anderson Silva tomorrow evening. He should now give up $100,000 to “The Spider,” who fights beneath 185 for the primary time in over 15 years however nonetheless made weight with out challenge.
That is clearly nothing new for Chavez (52-5-1, 34 KO), who famously missed the super middleweight limit by almost five pounds forward of his December 2019 battle with Daniel Jacobs. I’ll, nonetheless, say that “tanking your weight reduce on a card during which your father options prominently” could be a brand new low for this gargantuan waste.
The factor is, he has no incentive to cease. Yeah, he missed out on 5 figures, however he’s clearly not hurting for cash. If he can hold getting these big-name, big-money alternatives regardless of half-assing actually each side of the game, why on Earth would he put in any effort? Each frog on the earth appears dead-set on carrying this scorpion throughout the river.
