  • Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. misses weight, will lose $1 million

    After being cleared Tuesday by a Nevada State Court judge to fight Daniel Jacobs, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. weighed in nearly 5 pounds over the super middleweight division limit of 168 pounds for the Friday night bout in Phoenix.

    The 12-round fight will go on at Talking Stick Resort Arena (DAZN, 9 p.m. ET), but Chavez's roughly $3 million paycheck will be $1 million lighter.

    Chavez won a court-ordered temporary restraining order that forced the Nevada State Athletic Commission to lift his suspension for refusing a random drug test in October and paved the way for him to oppose former middleweight titlist Jacobs.

    Chavez weighed in Thursday at 172.7 pounds. The fight was contracted at 168
