In a shocker, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, following Julio Cesar Chavez’s ten round decision over Luciano Cuello in Tinjuana, Mexico - said Chavez might fight Manny Pacquiao at the end of the year in a major event with a Mexico vs. Philippines theme. Chavez is a junior middleweight and Pacquiao has only fought once above 135-pounds, when he stopped Oscar De La Hoya last December at welterweight. Pacquiao seems too small for Chavez, even though the Mexican prospect has plenty of flaws. [more details]

Vote number two for the Pac-Man. It will be a better fight than the last time. Always a big party at my house when Pac-man fights! I can't wait.

No one wants to see that fight. The only reason Arum is saying anything about it is because of $$$$ he thinks it would make from Mexican fight fans. The public does not want to see a Pacman Chavez Jr. fight and I think Manny knows this.

That fight will not happen.

Chavez has a record of 38 wins, nothing but BUMS.

a fight with someone like Pacquiao who has been boxing for 14 year would definitely DESTROY chavez jr.

What the hell is Arum thinking?

This fight would be a disgrace....only Mexicans will pay to see it.

Whatever happened to staying in a weight class and holding on to the belt(s) and fighting the top ten contenders???

Mexicans would pay a high amount to see Pacquiao KO'ed.
unfortunately, that's NOT going to happen.
