By Jose Luis Camarillo & Salvador Rodriguez,

As previously reported on, middleweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) dared England's Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11KOs) to fight him on August 3rd in Mexico City. The slated opponent is Brian Vera, but the Mexican boxer would like to face someone he believes is tougher.

Chavez wants to fight Murray for the WBC interim-middleweight title. WBC full champion Sergio Martinez won a close decision over Murray on April 27, but suffered several injuries that are likely going to keep him out of the ring until next year.

WBC President Jose Sulaiman would consider approving Chavez-Murray as an interim-title fight, depending on Martinez's medical status.

"First, what we need to do is to talk to Martinez and find out his medical condition, because a few days after the fight they won't know the full extent of the injury. It is better to wait and to find out the exact situation, but [Chavez-Murray] would be a good fight," Sulaiman said.

Chavez Jr could not do anything for 11 rounds, he was schooled and beaten up by a smaller guy, and basically with a full tank of gas and after doing nothing for 99% of the fight puts a combination together to ...
