Both Top Rank and Lou DiBella have confirmed that a deal has been reached for Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs) to defend his WBC middleweight title against Andy Lee (28-1, 20KOs) in an HBO televised main event on June 16th at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas.

"I like Andy Lee as the opponent. I think it's a great fight," Arum told BoxingScene.com on Sunday when the deal was close to being finalized.

While Chavez-Lee has been agreed upon, a deal is also close for the winner to face WBC mandatory challenger Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) on an HBO pay-per-view date in September.

Lou DiBella, who promotes both Lee and Martinez, is confident a deal will get finalized for the Chavez-Lee winner to face Martinez.

"This is a great opportunity for Andy. And right now we're trying to get a deal done for the winner to fight Sergio Martinez. The major terms have been agreed on, between me and [Top Rank CEO] Bob Arum. We just have to work out some minor obstacles. But even Arum will tell you the same thing I said, there shouldn't be any problems with getting it done [a deal for Chavez-Lee winner to face Martinez]," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=El Angel]Lee does crack harder than Chavez's previous three opponents and when he throws in combination, he is a very fluid boxer. Pressure does alot of things to a fighter though, like Margarito's did to Cotto. I'm not saying Chavez can apply the same kind of pressure, but being forced to...

cool.....Martinez gets the winner

comment by El Angel, on 04-04-2012
[QUOTE=Mikhnienko]What range the fight is fought at is the big question. I think the combination of Lee's size, jab, power (his left cross and right hook are great) and footwook will be able to keep Chavez off of him and make it mostly a boxing match from the outside. Lee does neglect his jab ...
