Default Julio Cesar

I am a great fan of Julio Cesar Chavez. I think that he has one of the best records of all time. But I noticed a very strange thing in his record.

On the 13th of December 1991, he fought a guy named Ignacio Pedromo in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico in a 10 round fight. It was JCC's 67th fight. The really strange part is that his opponent, Ignacio Pedromo, had a record of 1-0-0 coming into the Chavez fight. Almost as strange is that Pedromo lasted a full seven rounds and could not come out for the 8th. The fight is listed as an 8th round TKO for JCC.

What do you guys think about a champion like Chavez, in his prime, fighting a guy with only one fight under his belt?

Chavez had a lot of "stay-busy" fights while he was a champion.

Also, boxrec records often aren't complete for lesser known fighters.

That is what I thought too. It is not likely that a fighter with only one fight under his belt is going to last up to the 8th round against a champion with power like Julio Cesar.

I actually might have that fight...Doesnt ring a bell but Ive got a fair few of these Chavez tune ups fights that I dont think Ive ever really bothered watching...they just came on a dvd that had more important fights of his.

Its tweaked my interest now...Id like to see how that fight actually panned out.

Good. If you have the fight, let me know how it panned out.
