Chavez's Options: Cotto-Margarito Winner, Felix Sturm

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Co-promoters Fernando Beltran and Bob Arum of Top Rank are interested in matching WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. against the winner of the upcoming rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito, scheduled for December 3rd. Chavez vs. Cotto was once being explored in 2010, but the fight never happened. Another fight of interest is a unification with WBA champion Felix Sturm of Germany. Sturm is going to be a much tougher fight to put together, as he makes a lot of money to stage his fights in Germany.

"I think the most interesting fight would come against the winner of Cotto and Margarito," Arum told Sal Rodriguez.

Beltran said - "Cotto and Margarito sounds good, but there is also Felix Sturm, a fighter who is known in the United States and has a title. We'll have a good Christmas and good New Year and then we'll talk about [the next fight] in April or May."
