Chavez Jr. Eyes December Return, Still Hints at Daniel Jacobs

By Miguel Rivera

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KOs) is looking at the possibility of fighting again on a date in December.

He intends to compete at the super middleweight limit of 168 pounds. Chavez Jr. wants to prove that it was the weight loss that affected him against Canelo Alvarez this past May in Las Vegas. Chavez Jr. was dominated over twelve rounds at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The bout with Canelo took place at a catch-weight of 164.5 - which was Chavez's lowest weight since 2012 when he was a middleweight.


And Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) continues to be the target on Chavez's mind. Chavez had even called for a fight with Jacobs before a deal with Canelo was even finalized.

Jacobs was in action back in March, when he lost a close twelve round decision to Gennady Golovkin, who defends his middleweight titles against Canelo on September 16th. Jacobs' ability to last the full distance derailed Golovkin's 23 fight knockout streak.

"I am proud that I was able to return to boxing after having my hand surgery and having to drop more than 70 pounds in seven months, and then to score 163 pounds after five years of not fighting at that weight," Chavez Jr. stated.

"There were times I where thought I was going to die because I lost so much weight. Thank God I was able to do it, although not in the best way, but I'm fine. I think my best moment is yet to come."

According to Chavez Jr., his team is looking at some dates in December, but nothing has been set down.

Regarding the opponent he would like to face, Chavez Jr. posted several photos of Jacobs on social media.

Both Chavez and Jacobs are advised by Al Haymon and compete under the Premier Boxing Champions banner.

If you get the Jacobs fight I hope you learned your lesson so when the fight is over and you go back to your hotel room make sure you frisk the hookers before they leave.

Chavez Jr doesnt even deserve to be fighting at the top, I would only support this fight so Jacobs can get a payday, otherwise he should prove himself, he does not deserve this ****.

IMO, he beat Canelo. It was a close fight but he edged it out by 1-2 rounds. He was the smartest fighter and was more efficient, most Canelos punches landed on his gloves.
