Arum Talks Cotto-Margarito Rematch, Chavez-Foreman

By Lem Satterfield

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., for the moment, has a showdown with WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto in his future. Chavez is going to face Alfonso Gomez on December 4 in California. According to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, those plans could be altered based on the outcome of Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito, scheduled for November 13 at Cowboys Stadium in Texas.

If Margarito wins, he has a choice of having a rematch with Pacquiao or Cotto. But even if Margarito loses, but looks good in the fight, Arum says a rematch with Cotto could happen in the first half of 2011. If a Cotto-Margarito rematch were to happen, Arum says Chavez could end up facing someone along the lines of a Yuri Foreman.

"The fight with Chavez and Cotto is what is on the drawing board for right now. But, if, for example, Margarito lost to Pacquiao, but looked very, very good in losing the fight, then, maybe, the fight to make is a Cotto-Margarito rematch. And then, you might have Chavez fight somebody like a Yuri Foreman. We'll have to get one fight at a time done. We have a lot of options in those weight classes," Arum said.

[QUOTE=BoxeoBoriqua;9475329]He def gets his credit if he beats him in the rematch and this fight should be on the East Coast. We went out 2 the West Coast already.[/QUOTE] That's cool, bro. Much props. That's what I wanted to hear.…

[QUOTE=Big Chorizo;9475231]I agree. If Margo... or should I say, when Margo wins again... will you finally give the man his credit? Sorry buddy but I read someplace that the Yankee stadium will not host a boxing event again. Guess it…
