Chavez Jr. Eyes Move To 168, Ward - If No Martinez II
Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) is possibly going to debut next year in the super middleweight division.
In his last fight, on September 15th in Las Vegas, Chavez was decisioned over twelve rounds by Sergio Martinez. In the final round he dropped Martinez and came close to a miracle knockout.
He then tested positive for marijuana and now faces at least a six month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Upon returning he wants an immediate rematch with Martinez. If Martinez decides to do something else, then Chavez will move up to 168-pounds and named WBC/WBA champion Andre Ward as the ultimate target at the weight.
Chavez's trainer, Freddie Roach, has often called for his boxer to move up. Chavez resorts to starving himself to make the middleweight limit of 160. He makes the weight but then rehydrates to at least 180-pounds and beyond.
"I would like the rematch, I think would be a good fight. If not, I'll go up to 168, and there I'll develop to my full potential and I will be physically complete," Chavez stated.
