Diego Chaves is Close To Signing Pact With Top Rank
By Ryan Burton
Shortly after his disqualification loss to Brandon Rios in Saturday night in Las Vegas, rugged Argentine slugger Diego Chaves advised BoxingScene.com that his team was negotiating a promotional pact with Top Rank. Chaves career is guided by Osvaldo Ribero and his children Sebastian and Natalia.
Chaves also said that he deserves either a rematch with Rios or another big fight on American soil.
"My team is working on that. They are talking to Top Rank about a deal," Chaves stated in reference to his promotional status.
"I don't count this as a loss. It was two against one in the ring," said Chaves who felt the referee gave preferential treatment to Rios. "I want a rematch or go right back into another big fight."
