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."

[QUOTE=KTFO]Wow, I could probably speak for half the people on this site, but I'm speechless. Fightingest champion in history? What the f*ck is that supposed to mean? He just got handed a belt from the WBC, HBO and Bob Arum. Let's not forget that HBO basically got Martinez stripped of JCC Jr's ne...

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 winning that "belt" he's subjugated himself to the notion of being ...
