Margarito: If Chavez Beats Rubio, I Will Fight Him in June

By Miguel Rivera

As a kid, former champion Antonio Margarito (38-8, 27KOs) idolized hall-of-fame icon Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. If everything goes as planned, Margarito could possibly challenge the son of his idol, WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0, 31KOs), in the month of June. Next Saturday in San Antonio, Texas - Chavez defends his title against the most dangerous opponent of his entire career, countryman Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs).

"The plans are, that if Chavez beats Marco Antonio Rubio, then the two of us would meet in June. I don't want that fight because his dad was my idol, but boxing is a business and I'm here to fight. Of course I would accept the fight against Chavez, because I think he is at the top level. I have the physical dimensions to go up to middleweight and I can win and then face Miguel Cotto again or Sergio Martinez," Margarito said.

Margarito has lost three of his last four, including a brave effort in his last fight against Miguel Cotto in December. Margarito's eye was nearly swollen shut and the fight was stopped.

"I recovered well from the operation on my eye and I can continue in boxing. I hope the fight against Chavez is finalized, so I can start light training," Margarito said.

Bob ****ing Arum, if the fans will eat ****, keep feeding them **** til their ears bleed brown. I see Top rank is now talking Gamboa v. Rios, or Gamboa v. Lopez, or Rios v. Marquez, or Chavez v. Martinez or Vanes v. ? Or maybe it needs to build a little more.
