Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) has no objection with the the recent order by the World Boxing Council, which directs him to face Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio (57-6-1, 49KOs) in a rematch for the vacant interim-middleweight title. Chavez won a twelve round unanimous decision over Rubio in early 2012. The winner would become the mandatory challenger to the full champion Argentina's Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez, who is recovering from several injuries.

"If the World Boxing Council believes Rubio deserves another championship fight, that's fine. I'm ready for it, so if Rubio is the one in front of me then I'm going to beat Rubio...more easily this time," Chavez said. "Rubio is very cautious, hopefully he wants to win this time and make a much better fight."

Although Chavez appeared to be very heavy last week at a show in Mexico, he believes the weight limit of 160 can still be made.

"[My weight] has been a very controversial subject for me. I have problems, everyone knows that I have to take care of myself and go through a very a strict diet and work very hard in order to make 160 pounds," Chavez said.

Chavez will return on September 7th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. He will face Brian Vera at the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds.

"I'm working with Vladimir Baldenebro on the mitts, and with Alex Ariza on physical training, and we're doing a bit of strategy for the fight with Vera. I've almost always worked with them. Vera is a dangerous fighter from the beginning. He has always been in good fights. I will prepare 100 percent. I think I'm a smarter fighter, but I believe our styles will make for a very exciting fight for the public. I think there will bea  knockout, I do not see it going past eight rounds," Chavez said.

[QUOTE=giacomino]Love how this says Jr. "has no objection" to this fight. He loses by a mile to Martinez, gets fined and suspended, then gets to fight a guy he already beat for another title. Why would he object to being handed another title?[/QUOTE] Typical Bob Arum fighter....
