Hearn Sets Talks With Arum For Froch-Chavez in Vegas

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is targeting late November or December to stage a Las Vegas event featuring the return of IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch. After drawing 80,000 fans to Wembley Stadium for his rematch with George Groves, Froch's dream is to headline a big card in Las Vegas.

The three options for Froch are Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Mikkel Kessler and James DeGale. Chavez Jr. is the only opponent capable of headlining against Froch in Vegas.

Hearn told Daily Mail: "There are three realistic options – Mikkel Kessler III, James DeGale and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. I don’t think Carl is in any rush to fight again and I don’t think in his mind he is 100 percent about coming back. It is all about the opportunity. The fight in Vegas is what he really wants to do. If the right offer doesn’t come up then I am quite confident he will hang up his gloves."

"All three are good opportunities and it will come down to the specifics but Vegas really is the big draw for Carl. It’s what he wants. Right now I am going over the options and have already spoken to DeGale and plan to talk to Bob Arum (Chavez’s promoter) on Tuesday night. We will start talks and see what can be done and what is possible. I would like to look at the end of November or December in Vegas."

Am I the only one who doesn't want to see Froch vs Chavez Jr? Don't get me wrong I understand the finances but this is a horrific mismatch IMO.
