Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Open To Facing Gilberto Ramirez in 2021

Former WBC middleweight world champion Julio César Chavez Jr. appeared at a press conference on Wednesday and advised the press in attendance that he prepared very hard for his upcoming fight with Argentine contender Nicolás Masseroni, in the main event bout taking place next Friday, November 27, in the Revolución Park, in the capital of Sinaloa.

Chavez Jr. will look to snap a two fight losing streak.


During a press conference that took place at a restaurant in Culiacán, Chávez said that currently he is no longer interested in fighting for a world championship, because he only wants to face great fighters

"I think that in 2021 we will try to fight early in the year, maybe twice, and after another two more fights, look for something in May or September if there is any opportunity to fight for a championship... but no, I am no longer interested in just fighting for the championships. world championships.... what I want is to fight with the best, that's what I would look for, big fights," Chavez Jr. said.

At the announcement, Chavez ho was accompanied by Karim Arce, nephew of Jorge "Travieso" Arce, and Karen Rubio, who will also fight on this card.

He confirmed that his fight against Nicolás Masseroni will be at the light heavyweight 175-pounds, and over the ten round distance.

As previously reported, Chavez indicated that he spoke with the Municipal President of Culiacán, Jesús Estrada Ferreiro, who agreed to lend him the Revolution Park to stage the event and only 550 fans will be allowed to enter, with full sanitary restrictions for COVID-19.

In addition, he expressed that it will be special to fight in the Revolution Park, the place where he had his first fight as a professional 17 years ago.

"I hope it is a good fight, that it is clean, without head clashes, without cheating, that it is to the liking of the fans. I will give my best in the ring," said Chávez Jr.

"For this type of fight it is fine (at 175 pounds), but for important fights like against Daniel Jacobs or that type, I would like it to be at 168 (pounds)."

Chávez Jr. admitted that he would like to face Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramírez at some point.

"We have already traded gloves (in sparring), Ramirez is a good boxer, he is very tall, difficult, but if I would like to have a fight against him, it would be something very interesting," Chavez Jr. said.
