Julio Cesar Chavez Jr's Hand Injury (Video)

Here's a video look at the hand injury that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr recently suffered, which reportedly happened when he stretched his arms into a ceiling fan, canceling his drama-filled September 17 date with Ronald Hearns. (Thanks to Ismael Rubio for pointing this out to us.)


It's a little grainy, and I know it's fun to bash Chavez and he's given plenty of reason to doubt the legitimacy of this being a fight-canceling injury, but no, it doesn't look great on the video, which does give a better indication than the photos he posted on Twitter right after the cancellation.

Chavez (43-0-1, 30 KO) is out of the fight no matter what you think of it, and while it can be pretty easily argued as an unprofessional move, and it's something that a lot of people are not going to buy as the real reason the fight was canceled, that's not changing. And I can say honestly that I don't feel it's any huge loss. The 25-year-old Chavez now looks ahead to a scheduled November 19 date on HBO against Peter Manfredo Jr, taking the spot that comes with a bumped viewership on HBO the week after a major fight, as that will be the Saturday night of the Pacquiao vs Marquez III replay.
