By Miguel Rivera
Two more names are being mentioned as possible candidates to fight WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez (43-0-1, 30KOs) on September 24 in Mexico City. Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20KOs), the son of boxing legend Thomas Hearns, has been mentioned, as well as Japanese boxer Nobuhiro Ishida (23-6-2, 8KOs). Hearns was last seen in February, getting stopped in seven rounds by WBA champion Felix Sturm. Ishida was last seen in April, stopping unbeaten James Kirkland in one round. The name of Peter Manfredo Jr. is still being mentioned, but for Chavez's next scheduled fight on November 19.
