Omar Chavez Wants To Get His Hands on Antonio Margarito

By Miguel Rivera

Omar Chavez believes that he will soon be competing for a 154-pound world championship after he knocking out Ramón Alvarez, the older brother of superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, on April 29.

The plan right now, is for Chavez to reappear this coming July 29 and then look for a possible showdown against former world champion Antonio Margarito.

With a record of 36-3-1 and 24 knockouts, the 27-year-old Sinaloan commented that he hopes this year or in the following year he will find a big opportunity, as long as he stays in the plan of work that he's acquired for a few months And that led him to beat Canelo's brother.


The three fight plan is a stay-busy fight, then Margarito and then world title shot.

"What follows is another knockout," Omar told ESPN Deportes. "Let's wait for Margarito to say yes after this fight, and hopefully after that a champion at 154 pounds will give me the opportunity. I have date right now for July 29, at least that's what they told me, but they have not told me an opponent or a venue. It could be in Monterrey or maybe in the United States."

When asked about how viable a fight with former champion Margarito would be, he said it was nothing personal, and it will surely be a good deal for both of them.

However, it is neither obsession nor the only name Chavez has on his mind.

"As such I would not look for it, they mentioned it, I think beating him and seeing me do well would look good and then I could fight for a title... for example the World Boxing Organization. Personally I like Margarito, it's nothing personal. But this is a business, and if we are presented with the opportunity we will do it. If not, there are other fighters," said the son of the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.

In his most recent bout, Omar stopped Ramon Alvarez in two rounds to claim revenge for a September 2014 when he was beaten on points.

I can't believe that Margarito is still being mentioned. He is going to end up with permanent brain damage if he keeps fighting, not to mention his eye. Sad.

Smh. My boy Margarito is in no condition to fight. If there is one fighter that must retire immediately, its him. I think Margarito has the most fked up eye in Boxing. Imagine him running up on you on the…
