Chavez Jr. Prefers Golovkin or Ward Next, Not Martinez

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) does not appear interested in rematch, at least for the moment, with current champion Sergio Martinez.

Chavez would rather have fights with boxers who he believes will stand in front of him and fight - like WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23KOs) or WBA/WBC super middleweight titleholder Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs).

"Martinez has placed too many conditions, has said many things, as always he is a bit talkative and lacks humility. There are great middleweight champions, like Golovkin. I can also fight with Andre Ward. These fights are much more interesting and I think they would present a better show for the people, so I would have to look at the possibility of making these big fights after June 22," Chavez said.

Chavez, who lost a twelve round decision to Martinez in September, will return to the ring on June 22 against Darren Barker or Brian Vera.

Ward would frustrate Chavez and make him look very average IMO. I really doubt Chavez will get in there with Ward- at least not this year.

Funny, Jr saying Martinez isn't humble. Wow, what a laugh. This coming from the most arrogant and kokky spoiled brat ever in boxing. Ward would probably box his ears off, and GGG would probably take him out... because he is…

This is good news, regardless of Chavez Jr's idiotic reasoning. Wouldn't mind seeing either fight, though I think Ward dominates him (Chavez would finally be fighting closer to his natural weight range). Would be a good fight for GGG (money-wise)…
