Chavez Jr. Hopes Issues Can Solved For Froch Fight

By Salvador Rodriguez

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."

[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…

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…
