Hearn on Froch Possibly Facing Chavez Jr. in Las Vegas

By Luke Furman

On Saturday night, BoxingScene.com posted a statement from Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32KOs), who made it known that he was ready to fight IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24KOs) in the fall. Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, would like for Chavez to return in a major fight on September 13.

Following his dramatic one-punch knockout of George Groves before 80,000 fans in Wembley Stadium, Froch expressed his dream of headlining a big event in Las Vegas.

Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, is very interested in putting together a big fight between Froch and Chavez in Las Vegas - but Froch has the final say on what he does next.

"[Froch] deserves a big night in Vegas. And the Chavez fight, we looked at it even prior to this fight [with Groves]. And always the opportunity to do pay-per-view always wets the appetite of the promoter and I know it wets the appetite of Carl Froch.....and HBO Pay-Per-View and Sky Box Office Pay-Per-View. It's a decision for Carl and [trainer] Rob [McCracken]. It's my job to present the opportunities. Chavez is still a big name," Hearn said.

Chavez Jr. might price himself out again.

fk chavez. there is literally no point in that fight, except a payday. If Froch truly wants to be considered a great, he should go to Vegas and fight Ward again. He has nothing left to prove at 168 now.…

Honest question, why did Ward get so much sh*t for seeking a money fight with Chavez Jr but no one seems to complain when Froch and GGG ask for the same fight?

Neither can beat GGG. Both get knocked out by Gennady.

[QUOTE=Rudiamonds;14612807]Ward must be mad[/QUOTE] Depends... if Froch win as I believe he will, then Ward might be a little upset, but if Chavez wins, then that makes things even better for Ward.
