As was the case earlier this year, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs) and Top Rank are holding ground on certain aspects on a proposed deal to face WBA/IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch on January 24th.

Chavez owes one more fight to Top Rank, and once completed the Mexican star will become a free agent. When Top Rank tried to make a fight between Chavez and Gennady Golovkin, their talks hit a wall after Chavez rejected any deal which included a contract extension. Top Rank did counter with modified a offer for a single fight with no future options, but Chavez was unhappy with the money.

Now a similar issues, says Chavez, is taking place for the fight with Froch. Chavez's manager, Billy Keane, has indicated to his fighter that Top Rank is a offering a lucrative deal with a contract extension or a one fight deal for a much lower sum.

"My manager told me they want the extension and I just want a fight," Chavez said. "I'm ready to fight whenever they tell me. I hope everything will be resolved soon in order to get into the ring and fight."

Does that make any sense to y...

[QUOTE=Dinamita 03]Yeah two fights for a minimum of 12 million. Those are slave wages right there Arum is a crook.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't use the term slave wages, but If he can get 20 to 25 million for those same two fights, then it is unfair. Are you stupid enough to think that Arum is doing ...

[QUOTE=***1048;ATAS;14837001]Depends on the fighter. Bradley signed a multi fight deal because he wanted that security. For some guys, especially if they aren't super marketable, knowing they will guaranteed make X amount of dollars for X amount of time is important to them. In this case we aren'...

This is precisely why Mayweather Jr. left Arum -- because Arum was trying to screw him the same way he is trying to screw Chavez. If the fight is worth $7 million, it is worth $7 million, whether he signs an extension or not. Arum is basically a dictator who is using dictator-like tactics to cont...
