WBC Would Consider Chavez-Murray For Interim Belt
By Jose Luis Camarillo & Salvador Rodriguez, notifight.com
As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, 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.
Martin "power" Murray will beat Chazez jnr, but because its in Chazez's backyard he will get the decision. Chazez jnr is a pot smoking hippy who lives off his day's name, who has never impressed me once between them ropes:smashfrea:smashfrea:smashfrea:patComment by cbasaussie on 05-09-2013
