Andre Ward Willing To Face Chavez Jr. in Mexico Clash

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

During his recent visit to Mexico, the super middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KOs), said that there are many big fights out there for him - including a future battle with current WBC middleweight king Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs). Chavez is still fighting at 160-pounds, but his massive frame suggests a move to 168 in the near future. Chavez is known to gain as much as 20 pounds between the day of the weigh-in and the time of the actual fight.

"In 2012 I hope to continue having big fights and beating the best. Among the opponents that I can have is Julio Cesar Chavez. I know about his career, and what would be better than fighting him in Mexico. I know he's the world champion at middleweight, but there is not a big difference between his division and mine," Ward said.

Editor's Note: Ward has stated that he was misquoted in the Mexican press. Ward told the Mexican media that he was "open" to a future fight with Chavez, but never said he was targeting Chavez or looking to fight him in Mexico.

Ward just admitted in a follow-up interview that he was only responding to leading questions when mentioning Chavez..... that fight will never happen.

[QUOTE=Iceta Lives;11640052]Where are all the Ward nut huggers trying to defend this garbage? [B]Ward is a certified punk [B]b[/B]itch in my book.[/B] I will admit that Bute's comp has been weak for the most part. But so has Ward's. [B]Kessler,…
