“I don’t want to say anything more about anything until we get it done,” said Arum, 82, whose contract with Chavez is valid until October 2015.
The 37-year-old Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) knocked George Groves onto Queer Street in the eighth round on May 31 to successfully defend the IBF and WBA super middleweight crowns.
Groves (19-2, 15 KOs), whose awkward style again gave the Nottingham native fits, consistently outdid Froch with his speed, movement and deft footwork.
Unfortunately for “Saint George,” Froch connected with a savage right hand that quickly ended the contest in the decisive frame.
Comparatively, the 28-year-old Chavez (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs) dominated Bryan Vera to earn a unanimous decision in their March 1 rematch at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Constantly landing overhand rights, Chavez officially trumped Vera (23-8, 14 KOs) by scores of 114-113, 117-110 and 117-110.
Chavez Jr. is notorious for possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s.
Born into wealth, Chavez has been pinched juicing, arrested driving drunk, and suspended for a positive marijuana test over the past four years.
Still, largely because “The Son of the Legend” is blessed with cement fists and a granite chin, a scrap pitting Chavez Jr. against Froch would be intriguing.
In a Sin City affair that boxing fans deserve to see, expect Carl Froch and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to put on a show this winter.
