Gennady Golovkin's Trainer: Chavez Fight is '99% Done'

By Mike Coppinger

A proposed super middleweight fight between Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs) has been discussed for weeks now, but negotiations have dragged on.

However, those talks should be wrapping up within a week, and the fight should signed, sealed and delivered for July 19 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., according to Golovkin's trainer Abel Sanchez.

"The fight's about 99 percent done," Sanchez told BoxingScene.com on Wednesday at the fights in Santa Monica, Calif. "There's one or two little issues that are really insignificant, it should be done by Monday. Bob (Arum), I think, gets back from a trip on Sunday, so (the fight) should be done by Monday or Tuesday."

The bout will headline HBO Pay Per View and will represent Golovkin's first HBO appearance of the year. He was scheduled to fight Andy Lee on April 26, but withdrew from the proposed bout after his father died. Golovkin beat Osumanu Adama in February in a non-televised bout.

Chavez is coming off a convincing win over Bryan Vera in the rematch in March, which was shown on HBO.

Jr will be in up to his neck and won't be able to step up. B fighter with a chin and B+ power. No skill.
