Arum would make Chavez Jr. vs. Saul Alvarez fight right now

No Comments

By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says he would make a fight between is fighter WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and WBC junior middleweight champion Saul Alvarez right now, according to ESPN. Arum says he would forget about Chavez Jr. facing his next opponent, which is slated to be Peter Manfredo Jr., and make the fight between Chavez and Alvarez if Alvarez’s promoters, Golden Boy Promotions, were open to the fight.

As bad as Chavez Jr. looked in barely beating WBC middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik on June 4th by a 12 round decision, it seems like a risky thing for Arum to do putting the unbeaten Chavez Jr. in with a slugger like Alvarez.
