Soon to again be ranked by the WBC and eligible to compete, the 27-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) is expected to return to the squared circle on June 22 in Mexico City.
Junior last fought in September when he relinquished the WBC middleweight title by unanimous decision to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.
Despite claiming the THC came from using cannabis-laden eye drops, the Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended “The Legend Continues.”
In all likelihood, despite the layoff and regardless of who the opponent is, Chavez will emerge victorious this summer in “The City of Palaces.”
Hence, provided Martinez trumps unbeaten British contender Martin Murray on April 27 in Buenos Aires, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. and the badass Argentinean will probably meet in a rematch at some point in the autumn.by
