Chavez vs Cotto on October 1 or October 8, Says Arum

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

According to Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, a potential Mexico vs. Puerto Rico pay-per-view  grudge fight, between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Miguel Cotto, would take place on either October 1 or October 8, with Las Vegas as the likely location. On Saturday in Los Angeles, Chavez captured the WBC middleweight title with a twelve round decision over Sebastian Zbik. Cotto is the current 154-pound champion of the WBA. No information was specified on whether Cotto will go up to the full middleweight limit.

Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. said his son would have to train even harder for such a contest. He doesn't believe Cotto is on the slide and expects a very tough challenge for Julio Jr.

"[Julio] will have to work even harder for that commitment. Everybody knows that Cotto has improved greatly and the last thing we want to do is go in there being overconfident," Chavez Sr. said.
