Chavez Jr. Wants June/July Bout, Eyes Murray, Macklin

By Miguel Rivera

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is already looking to the future and wants to return very soon, on a date in June or July. Less than two weeks ago, Chavez moved up by nearly two weight divisions and was stopped after nine rounds by light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Chavez (48-2-1, 32KOs), who says Fonfara was too big for him, is planning to move down to the super middleweight division limit of 168-pounds. Two possible opponents mentioned by Chavez are Martin Murray and Matthew Macklin.

"I'd love to come back as soon as possible, and the end of June or July. I'll have a fight at 168 pounds. I want to resume my career, get into a rhythm and pursue the best for me," said Chavez to ESPN Deportes.

"Macklin and Murray are two fighters who like me have been at 160 pounds, two good opponents with whom I would have had a better chance than I had with Fonfara. Whoever [I face], I've already started training. I think that these two losses are not going to stop me. We will pursue new challenges and goals at this weight."

Maybe Murray had contemplated to get into SMW (I think the guy is a big MW). However, if Jr. keeps missing the gym then is useless to try any comeback (since we never know what Julio means by "training"). I…
