Chavez Sr. Says His Son Can Make 160 For Cotto

By Salvador Rodriguez

Legendary Mexican boxer Julio Cesar Chavez, believes his son, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs), could make 160 pounds for a major fight with WBC middleweight champion Miguel Angel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) of Puerto Rico. Chavez Sr. says everyone loves the idea of a fight between his son and Cotto.

Chavez Jr. has been fighting as of late at super middleweight, eight pounds north of Cotto, and most don't expect him to return to 160. Cotto is small for the middleweight division and he is not expected to stay there for too much longer. Chavez Jr. is also still trying to work out his promotional issues with Top Rank.

"Many do not believe that Julio can make 160 pounds. Right now he weighs less than 180 pounds. He can make 160 and he's always willing to go down there if the opportunity is worth it," Chavez Sr. said. 

"I particularly like the fight [with Cotto] and my son loves the fight. Cotto loves to fight and we'll see how things progress. Julio has many options, but he is willing [to go down there].

"Julio has changed with the arrival of my granddaughter Julia. He is training every day. It would take a lot more work to make 160 pounds but he would do it."

Margs most likely used the plaster for the most part of his career but even without the plaster he was coming on strong in the Cotto rematch. If manny hadn't Fawked up his eye we probably would have seen a…
