Chavez Jr. Has No Problem Facing Martin Murray Next

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0, 31KOs) is going to return on June 2 in Los Angeles, with HBO televising in the United States. One of the opponents being mentioned for Chavez is undefeated British contender Martin Murray (23-0, 10KOs), who fought WBA champion Felix Sturm to a close twelve round draw last December.

Chavez promises to face Sergio Martinez in the near future, should Martinez win his March bout against Matthew Macklin. Chavez wants the same treatment as the other WBC champions, like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who are rarely required to make mandatory defenses.

"I want to make an optional defense in June. My opponent could be English boxer Martin Murray in Los Angeles, but after that - and if Martinez wins his fight - then I'll fight him, "Chavez said.

"I assure you that I will fight Martinez. I just hope that as a champiom, they [the WBC] will allow me to take some voluntaries, which they allow all of their champions to do, even more so with Canelo, who never made a mandatory defense since he won the title."

[QUOTE=-Kev-;11820807]I don't think he has a problem facing anyone as long as it prolongs him facing Martinez. Chavez Jr would face the devil before getting in the ring with Martinez, he'd rather die than to get in the ring with…
