Description : Here we have the super rare original onsite poster from the Light/Welterweight championship match where Julio Cesar Chavez was hoping to turn back the clock at the age of 38 against the reigning defending champion from Russia via Australia the superb Kostya Tszyu. No turning back the clock here I'm afraid, as the aging Mexican legend Chavez lost the bout via 6th round TKO.

Chavez is considered by many as the greatest fighter ever to come out of Mexico.

He is a six-time world champion in three weight divisions, and for several years he was considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world. In a career that spanned over 25 years, Chavez won five world titles in three weight divisions: WBC Super Featherweight in 1984, WBA Lightweight in 1987, WBC Lightweight in 1988, WBC Light Welterweight in 1989, IBF Light Welterweight in 1990, and WBC Light Welterweight in 1994.

He holds records for most successful defenses of world titles (27), most title fight victories (31), most title fights (37), and he is after Joe Louis with (23) for most title defenses won by knockout (21). Chavez also has the longest undefeated streak in boxing history, 13 years. His record was 89-0-1 going into his first official loss to Frankie Randall and had an 87 fight win streak until his draw with Whitaker. Julio Cesar Chavez was known for his outstanding punching power, devastating body attack, remarkably strong chin and the relentless stalking of his opponents. He ranks #24 on ESPN's 50 Greatest Boxers Of All Time. On December 7, 2010, he was inducted in the prestigious International Boxing Hall of Fame for the Class of 2011.
