Arum: If Cotto Wants Chavez Jr. Next, I Will Get it Done

By Miguel Rivera

WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29KOs) might have another major showdown already on the sidelines. If Cotto defeats Mexican rival Antonio Margarito on December 3rd at New York's Madison Square Garden, he has the ability to secure a lucrative bout with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs). Their mutual promoter, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, is willing to get the fight done - if Cotto demands a Chavez clash, which the two boxers previously discussed for the tail-end of 2010 but the bout never took place.

"If Miguel Cotto wins this fight against Antonio Margarito, and wants to fight Julio Chavez, for the middleweight title - I will get that done. But, Miguel and his people have to want that, so I don't know. I've talked to Chavez and I've talked to my co-promoter with Chavez, Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, and that fight could be delivered," Arum said.

In a past interview with BoxingScene.com, Cotto expressed a lot of interest in facing Chavez, which allows Cotto the opportunity to become the first Puerto Rican fighter in boxing history to win four world titles in four weight divisions. Besides the current title at 154, Cotto is a former WBO champion at 140 and 147.

[QUOTE=BIGPOPPAPUMP;11470431]I'm sure Cotto will demand a reasonable catch-weight (158) likely and same day weigh-in requirement where Chavez can't go over 165-170.[/QUOTE] 36-2 Cotto? We tossing those Pac and May losses out the window.
