By Osiris Mendez Cruz,

According to World Boxing Organization President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32KOs) could have the opportunity to challenge for the WBO title at 168-pounds in 2014.

The belt is going to be at stake on March 1 in Germany, when champion Robert Stieglitz (46-3, 26KOs) defends the title against Arthur Abraham (38-4, 28KOs) in a trilogy clash.

Chavez will return to action on March 15th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, when he faces Bryan Vera in a rematch. 

"Chavez could fight the champion of the division if he wants, but he'll have to wait for outcome of the fight between Abraham and Stieglitz, and they are fighting in March. Chavez would have the option to go for that title now that he is ranked at super middleweight," Valcarcel said.

Abraham is shot imo but he could knock Chavez out, let's not pretend he doesn't have the power. Chavez's defence is not exactly great and has never fought a SMW at 168. If Abraham doesn't get a KO, he would lose as Chavez is semi-effective on the backfoot. Stieglitz v Chavez is also a good fig...

[QUOTE=lopez36]what organization wouldn't want him? not talking about how good he is or anything like that,just his popularity and the money he brings,no wonder the wbo is offering him the chance[/QUOTE] Becuase chavez Jr.'s Godfather runs the WBC

comment by House of Stone, on 01-01-2014
Stieglitz bombards him through 12 rounds possibly for a late tko. An Abraham fight would be closer but I think Abraham wins a close decision. Also froch, Groves and degale also beat him and ward obviously does. His only shot for a title would be against Bika but I wouldn't be surprised if B...
