According to ESPN, former WBC middleweight world champion Julio César Chávez Jr. could return to the ring this coming January in Los Angeles, California.
Although International Hall of Fame Coach Nacho Beristain, mentioned that Chávez Jr. was returning in December, it seems that “the saturation and clutter of dates” forced him to postpone until the new year.
Chavez Jr. hasn’t fought since he was defeated via UD, by Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, last May in Las Vegas.
In other news, undefeated WBC super bantamweight champion Rey Vargas says he’s thrilled and motivated to defend his crown, further cultivating his career, at the fabled Madison Square Garden in New York on December 2nd.
The 122 pounds king is ready to face unbeaten Colombian Oscar Negrete, and “The Garden” is the perfect field of action, to defend his Green and Gold Laurels.
With a flourish, he explained: “I have always dreamed big, since the beginning of my career and my goals have been both clear and high. One of them was to fight at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Right now, I’m just a few days away from making this dream become a reality. I’m very motivated and committed to make history!”
