Julio Cesar Chavez Jr
Lem Satterfield of BoxingScene reported on Thursday that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.'s next bout could be moving from September 24th to November 19th. A couple of thoughts on that move…  

-First, a boxing insider predicted earlier this week to me that there was no way Floyd Mayweather / Golden Boy, who have a pay-per-view show on September 17th, would want Arum to have this date to go along with the replay of Victor Ortiz-Mayweather the week after. I'd say this guy was prophetic.

-Second, November 19th makes sense since the week before is Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez III, so whichever network gets that fight may have a live fight to dovetail with that replay broadcast (I'm not sure if HBO has future rights on Chavez Jr. or not, so that's a whole 'nother issue).

-Lastly, the reason why Top Rank and those associated with Chavez Jr. wanted him to fight in late September was that it made sense from a logistical standpoint since his trainer Freddie Roach would be with him in the summer months at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood. If he fights in November, Chavez Jr. would be forced to make his camp alongside Pacquiao in the Philippines.

Folks, it's hard enough to get him to Southern California for six-to-eight weeks; good luck sending him to Baguio for two months.
