Chavez Jr: The Gennady Golovkin Fight Can Still Happen

By Miguel Angel Cebreros, notifight.com

Inactive since the month of March when he defeated Bryan Vera, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs) believes a fight with WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs) can still happen. The fight was being discussed a few months but the negotiations fell apart when Chavez was unable to reach an agreement with his current promoter, Top Rank.

According to Chavez Jr., his contract with Top Rank is about to expire, without specifying a date, but Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum claims the Mexican boxer owes his company another fight and the ongoing deal expires on October 15 of 2015.

"To make that fight everyone must come to an agreement, but [Top Rank] wanted a contract extension. I wanted to fight him, but I have to think about my future. In fact the bout with Golovkin has not fallen off, I can still fight him. The fight Golovkin could happen later this year or in early 2015. It's not that I didn't want to face him, there were contract issue. In fact I was really excited to fight with Golovkin because everyone wants to see that fight. He is a great fighter, and people are speculating who can handle him, and that has to be someone who has good chin - and that's me," Chavez Jr. said.

[QUOTE=Corizz;14929817]Most people dont seem to grasp this. Yes, he's throwing money at him, but he doesnt want the money under Arum! He doesnt want to sell out for a few more million bucks. He wants nothing to do with Arum…

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;14926856]Chavez Jr seems to give two ****s about your golden platter; he owes Arum one fight, so he wants to fulfill that one fight. Being free to dictate his own career, as he would be after the final Top Rank…
