For the third time this weekend, an all-time boxing legend has lost to an undistinguished opponent. Saturday in Phoenix, the great Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr. was defeated by journeyman Grover Wiley when his corner stopped the bout after round five. Chavez appeared to have broken his right hand. Chavez looked good in the first two rounds, throwing and landing his traditional left hook to the body. But the hand injury led him to call it quits against Wiley, who is 30-6-1 but lost his previous fight by stoppage against Luciano Perez. The bout capped a sad week for the all time legends as Johnny Tapia and Christy Martin also suffered defeats this weekend to two fighters who wouldnt have had a prayer against them in their primes. Want a shocking statistic? Chavez is 108-6-2 and the only fighters to have officially beaten him are Oscar De La Hoya, Kostya Tszyu, Frankie Randall... and Willie Wise and Grover Riley (Pernell Whitaker's name should be on this short list, but his fight against Chavez was unfairly scored a draw). Afterwards, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. said he wanted to face Wiley to get revenge for his father and promoter Bob Arum said that fight would take place on November 12 on the undercard of the Hasim Rahman-Vitali Klitschko fight.
