So if Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. successfully defends his WBC middleweight belt versus Andy Lee this Saturday night at the Sun Bowl in El Paso and does so with flying colors, will Chavez and Company begin negotiations with Sergio Martinez’s camp for a fight in September or October?
“Oh, absolutely,” claimed his promoter, Bob Arum. “We got the basic parameters spelled out, 60 percent for us and 40 percent for Lou DiBella. He'll make his deal with Martinez and we'll make our deal with Chavez.” (When reached by Maxboxing, DiBella stated, “Seeing is believing.”)
A date Top Rank has reserved for pay-per-view is September 15th, which just happens to be the date Golden Boy says they will do their own pay-per-view promotion featuring Saul Alvarez.
“Well, that fine; that's OK. In other words, we have the number one channel on On Demand and they'll have the number two channel. That's happened before and they will go at the MGM Grand and we'll go either in the Alamodome [in San Antonio] or the Thomas and Mack [Center in Las Vegas].”
Yeah, this Cold War isn't thawing anytime soon; is it?
