Chavez Jr. Could Get Margarito or Mundine if No Cotto

By Rick Reeno

An all-Mexican showdown between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs) and Antonio Margarito (38-8, 27KOs)? The fight is possible, according to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. First, several things would need to happen.

Chavez would have to get past his most dangerous test, Marco Antonio Rubio, on February 4th in San Antonio, Texas. Top Rank is interested in a July fight between Chavez and WBA 154-pound champion Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico. But, if Cotto is selected for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao on June 9th - then Margarito is a possible opponent.

Another possible opponent for Chavez is Australian star Anthony Mundine (43-4, 35KOs), a former champion at 160, 168 and the current WBA interim-champion at 154. Mundine recently traveled to Las Vegas and sat down with Top Rank to discuss a future working relationship.

"If we can't do Cotto, we could do Antonio Margarito. That's a possibility. There is also Mundine, who brings a lot to the table with the Australian TV," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

He's 1-3 post plaster and all 3 losses have been in world title bouts. Now he might be getting another shot for a title in a 3rd weight division??....that's disgraceful.

pacquiao has no intentions on fighting mayweather.period.the june 9th date speaks for itself.all that mayweather is obtion A junk is a lie. arum is using smaller fighters for chavez jr to continue to duck martinez.

I wouldnt mind seeing a Chavez jr. vs Margarita fight. If Margarita loses he should then retire. If he somehow wins, he could be in for a Martinez rematch.
