Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) is interested in captured the same title, only at 168-pounds, from Sakio Bika (32-5-2, 21KOs). Chavez returns on September 7th, at super middleweight, against Brian Vera at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The WBC recently ordered Chavez to face Marco Antonio Rubio in a rematch for the interim-title at 160-pounds, with the winner getting a mandatory shot at full champion Sergio Martinez. Chavez seems more interested in sticking at 168. No final decision has been made on his part, but few people expect him to return to the middleweight ranks.

"We've been talking within the team and we have not made a decision," Chavez said.
"Let's see what the body tells us. If we feel that there is no problem with the weight, we may go back to middleweight. But if we feel we're good at this weight we could stay here and look for a fight with Bika, who is the champion of the world boxing council. With him it would be a more attractive fight, even more than it would be with Rubio. That's what we're looking at, but for now the only thing on my mind is Vera and looking to give a good impression to everyone in Los Angeles who expects the best of me," Chavez said.

[QUOTE=Bushbaby]No it wouldn't. It would be Pappa Froch schooling his (Meho).[/QUOTE] I'm not THAT high on Froch to see him schooling any durable fighter.

I'm glad dude has FINALLY come to his senses, leave 160 alone and move up. Bika is as durable as they come and would provide a solid test.
