By Rick Reeno has been advised by sources in Mexico that if Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. doesn't face Miguel Cotto on December 4, Top Rank is considering a possible move to split the two fighters into separate bouts on the same date in Atlantic City.

Cotto would defend his WBA junior middleweight title in the main event. One possible name being kicked around for Cotto is former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron. The name being mentioned as a possible opponent for Chavez Jr. is Pawel Wolak, who was scheduled to fight Chavez in September before their fight fell through.

Cotto vs. Chavez began to have problems when the Mexican star refused to train with Freddie Roach in the Philippines, where Roach is going to train Manny Pacquiao for his scheduled fight with Antonio Margarito on November 13.
