Cotto vs. Chavez Will Not Happen in 2011, Says Arum

By Lem Satterfield

Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, advised BoxingScene.com that he will not go through with a rumored bout matching promotional stablemates WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs), who is 30, and newly-crowned, 25-year-old WBC middleeweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (43-0-1, 30 KOs).

Chavez is coming off of last weekend's unanimous decision that dethroned Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs).

"Cotto is not going to fight Julio Cesar Chavez this year, because, again, Chavez is not ready," said Arum told BoxingScene.com. "Chavez is going to need some more developmental fights before he can get into the ring with somebody like Miguel Cotto."

Well I called this one. Makes sense considering how Jr's been handled, though. This fight has had every chance to prosper 2-3x over now, but I agree with Bobs assessment that Chavez isn't up to snuff just yet. Unfortunately since…
