Chavez Jr. Takes on MMA’s Darren Till in a Theatrical Jake Paul – Mike Tyson Undercard Fiasco

By Tim Smith - 05/15/2024 - No comments

Witness the marvel that is the aging former middleweight champ, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., as he attempts to reclaim some semblance of relevance against UFC’s own frequently defeated Darren Till. This spectacle unfolds on July 20th at the majestic AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, setting the stage for an undercard that feels more like a sideshow act to the main event circus of Jake Paul vs. 58-year-old Mike Tyson.

Chavez Jr.’s Remarkable Decline

BarbosaBox leaked the news, if we can call it that, of Chavez Jr. joining the Paul-Tyson extravaganza. Bringing Chavez Jr. to this already bizarre fight card is like adding a flat soda to an already stale party — it doesn’t make it worse, but why bother? Three years post his last ho-hum victory against the virtually unknown David Zegarra, Chavez Jr. is now dipping his toes back into the boxing waters. Thrilling, isn’t it?

A Faint Glimmer of Hope? Nope, Just a Fading Star

Chavez Jr., with a record that reads like a litany of missteps (53-6-1, 34 KOs), is set to throw down with Darren Till, a UFC fighter whose recent claim to fame is a string of losses (five out of his last six, but who’s counting?). This will be Till’s grand debut in a boxing ring, where the only thing thinner than his boxing resume is probably his chances of winning.

The Undercard That No One Asked For

It’s clear that Chavez Jr.’s career trajectory has been less about soaring heights and more about free-falling from grace. Remember his losses to big names like Anderson Silva, Daniel Jacobs, and Canelo Alvarez? Yeah, those were the days. Now, he’s been relegated to undercard status on a fight card that’s headlined by a YouTube star and an almost sexagenarian. How the mighty have fallen.
