With 37 KO victories between them and a world title shot at stake, HUMBERTO SOTO and BOBBY PACQUIAO, world-rated No. 3 and 6 by the World Boxing Council, respectively, will go at it with fists blazing.
Revenge is the theme for the immensely-popular undefeated welterweight contender JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ Jr. when he tangles with family nemesis GROVER WILEY in a 10-round welterweight bout. Chavez (31-0, 24 KOs), from Culiacan, Mexico, world-rated No. 11 by the WBC, is the son of Mexican icon and four-time world champion Julio Cesar Chavez. Two years ago Wiley (30-9-1, 14 KOs), from Omaha, Neb., tagged a loss on the elder Chavez in the final bout of his Hall of Fame caliber career. Chavez will be in his son's corner for this fight.
