Chavez vs Manfredo May Get Pushed To November 19

By Lem Satterfield

BoxingScene.com spoke to legendary Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum regarding the futures of newly crowned WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. In June, the 25-year-old Chavez (43-0-1, 30 KOs) of Culiacon, Mex., dethroned Germany's 29-year-old Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) by unanimous decision and appears to be in line to meet 30-year-old contender Peter Manfredo (37-6, 20 KOs) in the fall.

When Chavez-Manfredo takes place, said Arum, depends on the schedule of five-time Trainer of the Year, Freddie Roach, who is working with southpaw eight-division champion and WBO welterweight belt-holder Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs), who will face WBA and WBO lightweight king Juan Manuel Marquez (52-5-1, 38 KOs) on November 12.

"Right at this time, it's Peter Manfredo [as the opponent in line]. Darren Barker was one of the guys being considered, but apparently he's fighting Sergio Martinez. A lot of when they fight depends on the schedules of Freddie Roach and Manny. So the date that we're probably looking at is November 19," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

The joke is that there's a "World Championship" title at stake, but this is a good matchup. Manfredo is going to give this kid all he can handle. Peter is a pretty good inside fighter and that's where Chavez does…
