Chavez vs Vera 2 full fight video highlights from HBO boxing rematch in San Antonio

Check out highlights of all the action from last night's marquee match-up in "The Lone Star State."

Sweet science!

Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. defeated Brian Vera during last night's (March 1, 2014) WBC Continental Americas super middleweight title bout, as part of the HBO boxing extravaganza inside the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Yes, that's a real title.

Despite the controversy surrounding their first bout nearly five months ago, Chavez Jr. took this one in convincing fashion, notching scores of 114-113 and 117-110 (x2). While Vera wasn't exactly kicking and screaming over the decision, he did feel it should have been scored a little closer.

From his post-fight comments (via HBO):

"I thought the fight was really close. A lot closer than it was on the scorecards. I thought the fight should have been scored closer. I'm a fighter and I always give people great fights. I've got a tough chin. We grew up rough. My mom and dad raised us to be tough kids. I'm too hard-headed and I need to work on things to be a smarter fighter to get where I want to get."

Chavez Jr., who improves to 48-1-1 with 32 knockouts, was likely aided by his ability to make weight, something that eluded him in their first go-round.

Any MMA fans out there happen to catch the fight?
