Froch v Chavez Jr talks have reopened, says Hearn

Nick Parkinson

Carl Froch has admitted he will probably call it a day if he can't get the fight he wants in Las Vegas. Promoter Eddie Hearn is hopeful he can deliver Carl Froch a fight against Julio Chavez Junior in Las Vegas after reopening talks with the Mexican's promoter. WBA-IBF world super-middleweight champion Froch is not interested in defending his titles against fellow Briton James DeGale next and is holding out to see if a fight with Chavez can be made. Chavez Jr, whose father is the Mexican boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez, has been in a contractual dispute with his promoter Top Rank and has not boxed since March, but Hearn has this week resumed talks.


"Talks have reopened with Chavez and Top Rank," Hearn told ESPN. "I've had talks with Carl about DeGale and Kessler but he says he wants the Las Vegas fight and I have to deliver that for him.

"Talks with Top Rank will continue this week, I have a conference call with them tonight, and I'm hopeful I will deliver the fight that Carl Froch wants, which is to tick off a box of fighting in Las Vegas to crown what has been a sensational career.

"Top Rank came on and said they are talking to Chavez Jr this week.....

He's thinking of the Pay-Per-View numbers.  One house in Tunbridge Wells buying the fight isn't really as many as he'd hoped for.

cos his opinion is taken seriously. I bet within five years there's an acrimonious falling out and subsequent court case with degale there.

If DeGale was fighting in his garden, Froch would close the curtain.  :sleep:

"Nobody has discussed that fight with me. I have had no communication with Top Rank, they are lying," Chavez said.
And regarding an offer to face Gilberto Ramirez, Chavez also denied that anything was presented.
"Those are lies, lies, all lies. It is a strategy [by Top Rank], nobody has offered me anything," said Chavez Jr.
To touch on the issue of the dismissing his now former manager Billy Keane, Chavez said:
"With Billy Keane, simply the contract was completed, but we are on good terms. He follows me around and helps me. Bob Arum does not want Billy Keane to help me, because he does not want anyone to help me."
"Bob Arum has sued me because he says that I still have a contract with him. How can I get closer with him if he is suing me?"
Regarding IBO/WBA middleweight champion Genaddy Golovkin, Chavez welcomes the opportunity to face him.
"He says he wants to fight me, I want to fight him. He is one of the fights that I want. I am motivated to fight him. If he wants the fight, and I want that fight, it is going to happen," Chavez said. "There are fighters who enter the ring [against Golovkin] and their main concern is to go in there and cash the check because there is a lot of money."
