By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - How about this for a kicker? Oscar De La Hoya vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.? On Saturday night, boxing promoter Bob Arum had plenty to say on an assortment of hot topics after his fighter Chavez Jr. scored a decent win over Peter Manfredo Jr. with a 5th round TKO at the Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas. The fight was televised live as the main event on HBO.

Fielding a question regarding a fight between Chavez Jr. and Golden Boy Promotions' Saul Alvarez, Arum who took a lighthearted shot at De La Hoya for spending too much time tweeting than promoting, side stepped pitting Chavez Jr. against Alvarez in favor of De La Hoya.

In regards to opting for Chavez vs. De La Hoya rather than Alvarez, Arum stated: "I'd rather have a fight between Chavez and De La Hoya. That would be a huge fight given that Oscar has beaten Chavez Sr., twice when he (Sr.) was towards the end of his career."  Arum went on to add: "Now it's kind of reversed and I'd think Chavez Jr. would be very interested in fighting Oscar."

Well there you have it folks!  Slice them apples anyway you want to!  Seriously, I kind of chuckle at the idea.  Jr. getting revenge / redemption for his legendary father in a comes a round goes around sort of victory over De La Hoya.  You kind of understand what Arum is getting at, or should I say selling at with this one. Still, I'd prefer Alvarez vs. Chavez any day.

As I mentioned above in this piece, Arum took a jab over Oscar De La Hoya's tweeting habits on twitter.  To read about that, visit this link from today: Boxing Promoter Bob Arum takes a shot at Oscar De La Hoya
