Omar Chavez-Jorge Paez Jr. Likely For September 3

Jorge Paez Jr. (28-4-1, 17KOs) is reportedly the likely candidate to face Omar Chavez (26-0-1, 19KOs) in a welterweight battle on September 3 in Chiapas, Mexico.

Paez would lose a close split decision to prospect Jose Lopez in May, but came back to defeat Jesus Gurrola in July.
