Boxing Recap: Imam scores flashy KO, Chavez Jr. wins but doesn’t impress

By. Gayle Falkenthal*

July 19, 2015

Another episode of the Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. telenovela aired Saturday on Showtime; AKA his bout with Marcos Reyes of Mexico.

Chavez Jr. won. This means nothing good for boxing. He entered and left the ring to a chorus of boos. What a shock that must have been to his father who accompanied him to the ring, something he never heard in his entire career.

Chavez Jr. (49-2-1. 32 KOs) refused to get on the scale Saturday after failing to make weight Friday. He was clearly the bigger man, north of 180 pounds. This is a light heavyweight fighting a middleweight, a repeat of the outrageous situation in his first bout with Brian Vera two years ago. Chavez Jr. won a controversial decision in that bout; observers felt Vera should have gotten the decision for making it competitive.

Reyes (33-3-0, 24 KOs), a natural middleweight, gave a good effort, but as he said after the fight, it was simply too difficult fighting a much bigger man. Reyes estimated he weighed 172 at fight time. It would have been nearly impossible for anyone. I’d bet Gennady Golovkin could do it, but it’s an unfair comparison. No wonder Chavez Jr. didn’t want to fight Triple G.

Judges agreed on only four of the ten rounds on the scorecards. Reyes threw and landed more punches than Chavez Jr. according to ShoStats, 164 of 690 total for Reyes (24 percent); 149 of 340 for Chavez Jr. (149 of 340). Power shots were nearly even, 117 for Chavez Jr. to 115 for Reyes. Reyes simply couldn’t muster enough force. It wasn’t an even match by any stretch.

With such a size advantage, Chavez Jr. should have performed far better. He didn’t, and the fans let him know it. Even the Showtime announcing team leveled much deserved criticism at Chavez Jr.

After the bout, Chavez Jr. said he would have done better, but said he hurt his left hand in the third round. “If I hadn’t hurt my hand, I would have knocked him out,” Chavez Jr. told Showtime’s Jim Gray. “He never hurt me… I can work better than I did tonight. But I win the fight, this is the most important thing.”

Chavez Jr.’s trainer Robert Garcia put the most positive outlook on the fight he could, saying “I think we could have done much better, more jabs. But it’s a process, little by little. I couldn’t do everything with just one fight,” said Garcia.

Reyes said after the fight, “I made the weigh in, and they don’t make the weight. He’s like a light heavyweight fighting to a middleweight. I did a pretty good fight, I think I won the fight.”

Chavez Jr. says he is working his way back to super middleweight at 168 pounds. That will be the day. His refusal to own his problems and rectify them is why fans have lost all respect for Chavez Jr. He makes promises he can’t keep. He doesn’t even seem to try. People are incredibly forgiving of foibles when someone makes a genuine effort to change. There is little evidence of this with Chavez Jr. I wish Robert Garcia a lot of luck with this rehab effort.

Unbeaten junior-welterweight contender Amir Imam (18-0, 15 KOs) of New York saved the broadcast, scoring an impressive fourth round knockout of Fernando Angulo (29-10-0, 16 KOs) of Venezuela. Imam made a real statement with the stoppage.

Imam had plenty to say after the bout too, calling out all the current title holders in the 140 pound weight division as “fake,” specifically Danny Garcia when asked. Garcia responded on Twitter and he wasn’t amused by the young challenger’s attitude. “You young fighter better keep my name out your mouth. If you wanna have a long career, I suggest you shut up cause I’ll end it. #TeamDSG” he wrote. Imam is young with plenty to learn, but he has everything it takes in and out of the ring to be a real star attraction. Keep your eye on him.

The less said about the dull super flyweight bout McJoe Arroyo (17-0, 8 KOs) of Puerto Rico and Arthur Villanueva (27-1, 14 KOs) of the Philippines, the better. It was stopped by the ring physician due to cuts and went to the cards, putting fans out of their misery. Arroyo won a decision that was so out of line on the scorecards to be suspect. Can’t we institute a rule in boxing that if a fight sucks as bad as this one did, no one gets the belt up for grabs?
