Canelo's Manager: Chavez Still Possible, Only at 160

By Miguel Rivera

According to manager/co-trainer Edison Reynoso, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 32KOs) could still face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs) - but only if the fight takes place at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.

Canelo-Chavez is still the biggest fight in Mexican boxing. At one point the two fighters were a division apart but the match became more distant when Chavez moved up to 168-pounds late last year. Canelo's last two fights have taken place at 155-pounds.

While it's very unlikely, Chavez claims he can still make the middleweight limit.

"A possible confrontation between Chavez and Alvarez has been mentioned for quite some time and it would only be possible at 160-pounds, where there is no advantage for anyone," said Reynoso.

Chavez's return is uknown. Canelo and his team will meet with Golden Boy Promotions next week to discuss a return on a date in December.

There's no way fat Chavez Jr can still make 160, this fight is no longer possible.

[QUOTE=Lords;14886802]If Canelo is willing to go to 160 why not fight GGG?
