Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs. Hector Camacho Jr in November?

By Mark Vester

Last Saturday in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, Hector Camacho Jr. (46-3, 26KOs) fought for the third time in 2008, stopping overmatched Roel Salinas in one-round. Camacho is being eyed for a year-end bout with undefeated junior middleweight prospect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (36-0, 29KOs).

According to a few people who spoke to Camacho after the bout was over, the rumored date being thrown around for the fight is November 20 in Mexico City.

Their two famous fathers took part in a very publicized bout in 1992 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. won an easy twelve-round decision over Hector Camacho Sr. to retain the WBC junior welterweight title.

There many who wonder if Camacho Jr. will be able to make weight for a junior middleweight bout with Chavez Jr. Reports for his latest fight put him between 168 to 170-pounds. He weighed 162 for his bout in April and 173 for the bout in January. Camacho Jr's best days were at 140-pounds, if you can call them that.

Camacho Jr. is washed up like dirty dishes. JCC should beat him up pretty good.

this is in my opinion ridiculous. They keep protecting JCC jr. and he's gonna be in for a rude awakening. On the other side since he didn't get to fight in the amateurs is good for him to be so…
