Omar Chavez Could Possibly Face Jorge Paez Jr. Next

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

On Saturday in Mexicali, welterweight contender Omar Chavez (26-0, 19KOs) stopped Genaro Trazancos in four rounds. Omar's legendary father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., was very pleased with his performance - stating - "despite six months of inactivity, I saw progress. I think he looked very good." Chavez Sr. said his son could face Jorge "Maromerito" Páez Jr. (27-4-1, 17KOs) in his next fight. Another opponent mentioned by Chavez Sr. was Argentine boxer Luciano Cuello, who lost in the past to older brother Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
