The special event, slated to air live on HBO World Championship Boxing, will feature a doubleheader highlighting WBC Middleweight Champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (40-0-1, 31 KO) versus #1 WBC mandatory opponent Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46 KO), and Pound for Pound fighter Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18 KO), competing for his first world title in the Super Bantamweight division, against former WBO Champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr (21-1-1, 18KO).

The current WBC Middleweight Champ is coming off of his strongest performance in knocking out the always game Peter Manfredo Jr. on November 19th, but will be up against a very tough and experienced fighter in Marco Antonio Rubio.

In what is now being dubbed as "The Great Twitter War", Filipino favorite Nonito Donaire will clash with former WBO Super Bantamweight Champ Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. for the aforementioned vacated title.

Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. lost the highly coveted WBO strap to Jorge Arce last May in a very entertaining "Fight of the Year" candidate and is looking to regain his Championship status.
