LOS ANGELES (September 25, 2013) -- Hall of Fame promoter and Jenny Craig acolyte Bob Arum concluded his remarks at today's final Julio César Chávez Jr. - Bryan Vera press conference at the Millennium Biltmore hotel with the proclamation, "Wait for the Weight!"

What would a Chávez Jr. fight week be without a concern about his official weight? It took up the majority of the questions during Tuesday's media conference call that he and Arum hosted.

The contract weight for Saturday's super middleweight rumble is a maximum of 168 pounds for the two fighters.

"Julio must be a Union man because he seems to be working for scale for this event," said Arum with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

A member of Team Vera suggested that Tecate Light sponsor the official weigh-in and that Chávez change his middle name from César to Cerveza.

Friday's official weigh-in will be streamed live from the Gold Room at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel(506 South Grand Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. 90071-2607), beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. PT via www.toprank.tv.

that guy is a freaking joke! Vera will be out weight by 30 lbs on fight night, where the hell is king Sulaiman preaching fairness in his sermon, I'm hoping Chavez gets ko'd. dude is got no respect, He claims he is got everything to loose and nothing to gain??? what about Vera?? he is standing idle looking for a paycheck and will be fighting a heavy weight on fight night.

Me too the weight has been hiked all the way up to light-heavyweight status.(173lbs)
......Junior might as well be fighting Travori Cloud...or Shumenov.... Can't blame Vera for taking the bait...I mean the fight.
I'm sure the Bob Father has sweetened the pot for Vera's sacrificial offering.

Six-figure sweetening, baby!

Nuff said

Stevenson-Cloud will be the fight of the night. Too bad Haye got cut. Jr will win. Vera is in over his head AND the deck is stacked against him. If Vera lands a big shot on Jr. he will get hit by a trank dart from the rafters. This is all about Jr. We've seen this before. Vera gets a nice payday and Jr gets to feel good about himself. As Linda Ellerbee said, "And so it goes"
What happened to deepwater and Ali? I HATE when guys go missing...
