Arum: Chavez Jr. Presented With Golovkin Deal For 7/12

By Miguel Rivera

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs) has been presented with an offer to face WBA/WBO middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs). The fight would take place on July 12th, on HBO Pay-Per-View, from the Forum in Los Angeles, according to Chavez's promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank. Given Chavez's struggles with making weight, the fight match would require that Golovkin move up to the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds.

"I spoke with Chavez Jr. on Saturday and presented a proposal to face Golovkin. It's a fight we would do on July 12 at the Forum in Los Angeles," Arum told Carlos Narvaez.

Another potential option for Chavez is popular light heavyweight contender Jean Pascal, but Golovkin is the frontrunner for Arum, because of the heavy interest for the match from HBO.

[QUOTE=just the facts;14348508]Nobody is questioning Jrs grit, it's his skill level that's lacking. No jab, slow plodding footwork, and leaky defense are Jrs problems. A dedicated body attack, solid chin, and good power are enough to overcome these faults vs…

[QUOTE=Weebler I;14345327]I'd prefer Golovkin didn't take this fight. He's a 160lb fighter and that's where he should box. A loss to Chavez at a weight class above could be very damaging for his career, physically and financially.[/QUOTE] He wouldn't lose,…

[QUOTE=Still Burner;14347437]OMG sign me up. Anyone who thinks GGG takes this easily is insane. Jr is about that brawl life. Hes no bytch. This a WAR.[/QUOTE] Nobody is questioning Jrs grit, it's his skill level that's lacking. No jab, slow…

[QUOTE=mathed;14348321]Time for GGG to get broken down into submission.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't go that far. I think Golovkin probably outboxes Chavez. I'm not sure how Chavez will take Golovkin's body shots. But then again, I'm not sure how Golovkin takes Chavez's…
