Chavez Jr. Motivated By Winning a World Title at 168

Ambitious contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32KOs) declares he's still young, has remaining goals to conquer and aims to win another title above middleweight. It's been almost a year since he lost the WBC middleweight crown to Sergio Martinez. In his return fight against  Brian Vera, he had to shed a bucket load of ring rust to win a controversial ten round decision. Much has been said about a rematch against Vera, but Julio confirmed pen have not been put to paper.
“I haven’t signed anything yet, I can’t speak about a rematch with Vera, but I’ve heard that it might take place in February. The truth is that there are other fights that I want."

Chavez Jr. said that he’s motivated by the idea of conquering the super middleweight title.
“I still have a lot to achieve in boxing. I’m 27 and I want to conquer the super middleweight title. To become the first Mexican in doing it, like I did with the middleweight title. Let’s see how far I can reach.”
Regarding his fight against Vera, Julio said that the fight helped him a lot to regrout and regain ring rhythm.

“I regained this, so the fight was helpful, I can’t stop fighting for this long again. I want to thank God, because TV ratings show that people still follow me and I want justify their confidence.”
