Chavez-Froch Showdown Eyed For January in Vegas

By Miguel Rivera

Top Rank VP Carl Moretti confirms that his company is still very interested in making a fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. of Mexico and WBC/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch.

On Monday, Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, told BoxingScene.com's Shaun Brown that discussions restarted for the potential match.

One date being looked at is January 24th in Las Vegas. Moretti stresses that his discussions for Chavez-Froch are still in the very early stages.

"It's what we're talking about, but there is still a lot of work to do. We talked about it for late January in Las Vegas. But it was only a conversation without any agreements on money," Moretti told Carlos Narvaez.

Moretti also labeled inaccurate reports of a Chavez-Miguel Cotto clash for December 6th as being "crazy."

Chavez would need to push Froch back and try and get inside, but will find it difficult due to Froch's jab and reach. Froch wins a 8-2/9-3 kind decision

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;14810279]I was never a big Froch fan but, I will have to admit that lately, he has really grown on me. I also believe that Junior is one of the most overrated fighters in the history of the sport.…
