Chavez Jr: I Can Beat Golovkin and Knock Him Out!

By Rene Umanzor

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) is getting ready for his ring return on September 7th against Brian Vera at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Chavez has no problem with WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin, but he wants the fight to take place at the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds or a catch-weight. The fight with Vera is going to happen at a catch-weight of 165.

"Golovkin and [Daniel] Geale are the best at 160-pounds, Sergio Martinez is out. I believe that if Golovkin wanted to fight me at 168-pounds, I could knock him out. There is nobody else who could beat him out right now. I can also fight [Golovkin] at middleweight, but it would be better to fight him in the middle or at 168, because if I don't have to struggle with the weight and I go in the ring strong - I can knock him out," Chavez said.

Chavez would also like to face the new WBC champion at 168, Sakio Bika.

“I would like a fight with Bika because he is a super middleweight champion, but we are going to evaluate everything. It really depends on the offers and who they tell me to fight," Chavez said.
