Chavez's Brother Wants a Piece of Saul Alvarez, Cotto

By Miguel Rivera

On March 29th in Culiacan, junior middleweight Omar "Businessman" Chavez (31-2-1, 22KOs) will face the biggest challenge of his career, dangerous puncher Daniel Sandoval (34-2, 30KOs), who fought ten times in the last two years and has a unbeaten streak that stretches back to November 2010.

Chavez says that took such a dangerous fight to prove that he's ready for the biggest names at 154-pounds - including countryman Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto.

For years there was talk of a fight between Canelo and Omar's older brother, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Now Canelo and Julio Jr. are too far apart in weight.

"I would love to fight with Canelo, but I would also love to fight Cotto, and any other fighter who is affiliated with HBO or Showtime. I'm looking for a world title fight. The fight with [Sandoval] was taken to give me credibility so [my career] can take off afterwards. I took this fight because I feel ready to accomplish what I've dreamed of," Chavez said.

Chavez Jr is an over weight bum. The guy can never make weight. He does not train. Smokes pot. He has no respect for the sport and should stay out. Stop living off of your father's name !

When I hear people say he's more talented then Jr. I get a good laugh. Omar is a straight up bum. Say what u want about Jr but he's at the very least a serious challenger or was one.

[QUOTE=Box-Office;14245721]Gifted fiters dont have to rematch Brian Veras. Unless they get caught like Andy Lee which is one thing but Chavez lost over 12 rounds. Also he won a gift title through a manufactured situation. I still think Chavez being…
