Lou DiBella, promoter for middleweight king Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs), confirmed BoxingScene.com's report from early this morning , indicating that minor discussions have taken place with respect to a fall clash between Martinez and WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs). Martinez became the mandatory challenger at last December's WBC convention in Las Vegas.

Before any serious negotiations take place, Martinez has to beat Matthew Macklin later tonight at New York's Madison Square Garden. If Martinez is victorious, DiBella plans to start serious discussions with Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, on Monday.

"I hope that it happens. Sergio has a real tough fight tonight. If Sergio pulls through, I will be calling Bob on Monday to discuss that fight," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

According to Julio's father, the legendary Chavez Sr., the tentative date on hold for a Martinez fight is September 15th in Las Vegas.

On his end, Chavez Jr. has a scheduled defense on June 16th in El Paso, Texas, likely against British challenger Martin Murray.

DiBella doesn't rule out the possibility of Martinez taking another fight before a potentional meeting with Chavez in the fall.

"Sergio may take a fight in-between then. It depends on how things go tonight," DiBella said.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]WTF is your problem with Ward?[/QUOTE] Actually, I have no problem with Ward at all. I like Andre Ward. I respect Andre Ward, I like the way he carries himself as well. And, I think he get a horrible rep for being boring and a dirty(in terms of headbutts, elbows, roughhouse...

Chavez is going to continue to get milked by Arum himself.. No way he feeds Martinez his cash cow.

WTF is your problem with Ward? He has come out and straight out said that he is willing to do OST (and did it for years already during the amateurs on his road to the gold medal.) If it didn't happen for the Abraham fight it was because AA didn't push for it strongly enough. There were other...
