According to Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., a potential fight between his son, WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs), and mandatory challenger Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs), is currently being explored and a fall date of September 15th has been placed on hold for the fight. The fight will take place in Las Vegas, says Chavez Sr.

Chavez Sr. told BoxingScene.com that his son's promoters, Zanfer Promotions and Top Rank, advised him of the ongoing discussions and reportedly a tentative agreement, in terms of staging the fight in September, was reached.

Additional sources confirmed to BoxingScene that Chavez-Martinez is certainly being discussed. Staging the match in September would allow Chavez to move forward with a planned fight against British boxer Martin Murray on June 16th in El Paso, Texas.

The WBC ordered Chavez-Martinez last December at their 49th annual convention in Las Vegas. Provided Martinez defeats Matthew Macklin later tonight in New York City, the WBC will expect the two sides to reach an agreement within 30 days before a purse bid is scheduled.

"Everything is ready. They told me there is already an agreement to fight in September. We hope that Martinez wins [tonight] and that Julio wins his fight against Martin Murray on June 16 in El Paso, Texas - [so Julio can] fulfil the wishes of so many people - and once and for all to shut a lot of mouths," said Chávez Sr.

The people who wants to see this fight just wanted to have another Bob hyped fighter go down, just like people who wanted floyd to lose pay in hopes of seeing floyd lose. But obviously, Floyd ain't gonna lose and JCC will surely lose, my point here is just to explain why people wanted to see this...

Tired of hearing Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. talk on behalf of his son. Julio jr. is my opinion a blown up fighter who just doesn't have the credentials to be a legit world champion, all of his opponents have been hand picked and to this day I haven't seen him fight a worthy opponent. His father knows...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]You're comparing this to Mayweather-Pac :rofl:[/QUOTE] You would think that.... You say it won't be competitive, you're opinion is irrelevant. Just like mine is towards Mayweather vs Pac not being competitive. At the end of the day it is a Champion vs a Champion ...

[QUOTE=WESS]I don't think Mayweather vs Pac would be a competitive fight. Are you saying that fight shouldn't happen either just because I personally think it won't be competitive?[/QUOTE] You're comparing this to Mayweather-Pac :rofl:

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]This would not be a competitive fight. You want to see it. And you want to see it to spite a promoter :rofl:[/QUOTE] I don't think Mayweather vs Pac would be a competitive fight. Are you saying that fight shouldn't happen either just because I personally think it won't b...
