Pacquiao-Algieri: Chaves Could Face Alvarado, Abregu

By Nicolas Samuilov, notifight.com

Still annoying and clouded by the disqualification defeat to Brandon Rios in Las Vegas, former interim welterweight world champion Diego "La Joya" Chaves returned home to Argentina. However, the pleasant impression that he left in Saturday's presentation has opened the door for another big fight opportunity, on November 22nd as part of the Manny Pacquiao-Chris Algieri undercard in Macau, China.

After arriving just two days before the fight due to visa issues, Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs) was a little physically spent when he entered the Rios fight. He is upset over the DQ ending, but now finds comfort in signing a promotional deal with Top Rank and being offered another lucrative opportunity on a big stage.

"I'm not mad, I'm upset. It was an unfair disqualification. We had been winning the fight. The referee is unintelligent, there was no justification. After giving a lecture the first half, and despite some mistakes I was winning. Two of the judges had me ahead. He deducted two points from me, and from Rios just one when he was the one committing more offenses. During the break between the eighth and ninth, he came to our corner and told me he was going to disqualify me. Then, without anything unusual he did disqualify me. I don't understand it," Chaves said.

"I already said I want a rematch with Rios, or another big fight in the United States. But [Top Rank] offered me a fight on November 22 in Macau, and surely we are fighting over there. I have a signed contract with Top Rank for three fights. So November in Macao will be the second. We volunteered to fight Mike Alvarado and Carlos Abregú in Macao. We want a big fight, so we'll see what happens. Right now it appears that Alvarado is more likely, so we could end up fighting him. "

Alvarado (34-3, 23 KOs), in his last performance on May 17, lots a twelve round unanimous decision to Juan Manuel Marquez in Inglewood, California. Meanwhile, Abregú (36-1, 29 KOs) was last seen in action on April 4 when he stopped unbeaten Venezuelan Jean Carlos Prada in the eighth.

"I made ​​a good fight on Saturday. I demonstrated my level, despite having arrived only two days ago, and left a good impression. So now we want to fight in Macau in November. Right now I'm relaxing with my daughters and my family, then I'll start thinking about the training camp and fight in Macao," Chaes concluded.

[QUOTE=Box-Office]It is not even an exaggeration. The guy only has his chin going for him otherwise he can't box for sh1t.[/QUOTE] Thats all you need when you fight in his style, his one mission is to out war you and when he cant he loses. Thats why his chin is his biggest asset.

Anyone else feel Chaves has stiff legs when he punches? I think if he bends his legs and puts his body in to it more then he can punch even better. Either ways love the guy and hopefully he gets an another good fight. Hopefully get rid of Alvarado at the top level, unless they plan to make a Rios...

[QUOTE=Bigg Rigg]He was holding cuz Rios used his head as a battering ram to get inside. That's his only way to get inside and inside is the only place where Rios can fight. He's a bum. I'm sorry. If Rios was as good as Thurman, he would have whipped him without having to use his head so much.[/Q...
