You know, I just can't walk past a mirror without taking a self portrait.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr / Brian Vera ; 2013.09.28
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr's highly anticipated return to the rink was a controversial one at that. Not only did he have trouble making weight (not making, and having to fight at a heavier weight class), but his seemingly safe opponent was everything but safe. Brian Vera fought an aggressive fight, had Chavez baking up for most of it and appeared to have won the fight. Chavez Jr to his credit did score some power punches which stunned Vera, and in the end was awarded the victory by way of a unanimous decision. Here are my images from that fight. All images were shot with Canon 1Dx and 600mm lens (Canon 300mm 2.8 w/ 2x extender).
