Description : Here we have an original rare official HBO boxing closed circuit fight poster for the WBC world middleweight championship title bout held at the Sun Bowl, El Paso, Texas, USA, 16th June 2012.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. recovered from a slow start he blamed on leg cramps and stopped Andy Lee at 2:21 of the seventh round to retain the WBC middleweight title. A right uppercut by Chavez snapped Lee's head upwards and sideways, and Chavez connected on a barrage of punches before referee Laurence Cole intervened and waved an end to the fight. "I began by studying him," Chavez said. "I saw he had nothing, and I dove in."

Chavez (46-0-1, 32 KOs) began tentatively, not even throwing his first punch until 75 seconds had elapsed in the first round, and initially was outboxed by Lee (28-2), a much taller challenger than Chavez previously had faced. But as the next two rounds passed, the Mexican champion began to stalk Lee, blasting him with right-cross counterpunches. "He's strong, he's young, he's big," Chavez said of Lee. "He gave me everything he had, but he couldn't do anything to me."

In the fifth round, Chavez openly taunted Lee's punching power, dropping his gloves, grinning wildly and pretending to have wobbly knees. From there, Chavez's strength put Lee in retreat, and Chavez punished him with left hooks to the body and right uppercuts to his head.

"I couldn't hold him off," Lee said. "He was too big and too strong." Lee's trainer Emmanuel Steward concurred with his fighter's assessment, saying, "Junior fought a smart fight. He's very strong. He passed the test."
