Arum: Golovkin First Choice For Chavez, Then Carl Froch

By Salvador Rodriguez

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is preparing a new deal for Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to return in September or October, but he only wants to negotiate through Chavez's father, the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez and not through manager Billy Keane.

There are two lucrative possibilities for Chavez. Arum revealed that WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (as long as he beats Daniel Geale on July 26) and IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch are good opponents for Chavez's return.

Golovkin is still the first choice. If Chavez rejects a deal to face Golovkin, then Arum will try to make a deal with Froch.

"Of course Carl Froch is a possibility, but I want to make [the fight] through his father. Gennady Golovkin will continue to be the first choice assuming he beats Geale, and if [Chavez Jr.] says no [to Golovkin], then we'll look to Froch," Arum said.

Yea, I don't get what trying to negotiate through his dad will do.....maybe because he thinks Chavez will listen to his dad.... other than that, dunno
