Chavez Jr eyes up Murray bout

Reports from Mexico are claiming that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr has listed Englishman Martin Murray as his first choice of opponent for his August 3rd fight in Mexico City.


Murray who comes off an excellent showing and narrow points loss against the worlds best Middleweight, Sergio Martinez, would be a stern test for the returning Chavez (46-1-1, 32 ko’s)


The Mexican, who has not fought since losing to Martinez, was scheduled to face Brian Vera, but with Murray’s stock soaring due to two world class performances against the Argentinean and Felix Sturm this seems like a logical match up.


Reports that Chavez, who appears tight at the weight, is looking for this fight to take place at a 164lb catchweight are unconfirmed by the Mexicans camp.
