Chavez vs Manfredo: DiBella Very Receptive To The Fight

By Rick Reeno

Promoter Lou DiBella is very receptive to a possible fight between Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-6, 20KOs) and the new WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (43-0, 30KOs). Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, has named Manfredo as one of the three frontrunners to face Chavez Jr. in the fall. Unbeaten Brit Darren Barker and mandatory challenger Marco Antonio Rubio are the other two possibilities for the 25-year-old Mexican champion.

Arum is trying to secure a late September date, on HBO, for Chavez's first defense of the WBC crown.

"Manfredo is ready for the fight. I think it's a very good fight and I think Manfredo can beat him. I haven't received a formal offer from Top Rank, but I expect to receive one in the next couple of days," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

This fight makes sense. We know Manfredo so he's actually fighting a name fighter who has been in with he best. This fight will be a good measuring stick fight. Can he outdo Calzaghe? Haha jk but still this should…

I feel bad for Sergio Martinez... Dibella is not interested making things happen for him. I know that every promoter must take every opportunity he has to make money for his fighters but at this point dibella should understand that…

Chavez Jr will be a horrible champion! I look forward to the day when he fights a B class fighter & puts a beating on him, but seem like Chavez will stick w the C & D fighters.
