JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR. WILL FACE ANDY LEE
Mon, 09 Apr 2012 12:26 PM EDT

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will protect his middleweight title against Andy Lee on June 16 at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, both parties expounded after agreed to terms. NFL betting lines

Agreements aren’t signed yet, but both parts stated that they are confident the agreement will be finalized. Adding intrigue to the fight is that Chavez promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank and Lou DiBella, Lee’s promoter, are also working on an agreement under which the winner of Chavez-Lee could challenge lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez – who is promoted by DiBella – in September.

The promoters have agreed to terms and are finalizing deals with their fighters. Football odds

“We have agreed in theory to the terms but we want to see a contract. But I am optimistic,” Billy Keane, Chavez’s manager said. “I’m wishing that an agreement will come which will reflect the terms we verbally concluded on.”

There had been previous talks between Top Rank and DiBella concerning making the fight. However, Top Rank wound up going in a different direction as it expounded it did not wish Chavez to fight a southpaw.

Chavez was supposed to fight England’s Martin Murray, a right-hander, on June 16. However, he dropped out 2 weeks ago due to past criminal convictions that were going to hinder him from getting a visa in time to fight in the United States.

Top Rank considered matching Chavez with junior middleweight Vanes Martirosyan, an undefeated 2004 U.S. Olympian it promotes, but ultimately selected Lee (28-1, 20 KOs), a 27-year-old 2004 Irish Olympian who now lives in Detroit with trainer and co-manager Emanuel Steward.

“I believe it is a very exciting and tough fight,” said Steward, who once trained the great Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. for 3 consecutive junior welterweight international title fights in 1994. “I think it is going to be a very tough fight. Chavez has become a real fighter. He’s become a very serious fighter. He has really high energy in the ring. He cuts off the ring well and smothers you. Him and Andy, they’re both big men for middleweights; they are both good punchers and they both get hit, which makes it a very good fight.”

The 26-year-old Chavez (45-0-1, 31 KOs), of Mexico, will be making his 3rd defense, all in Texas. He made his 1st defense in Houston by knocking out Peter Manfredo Jr. In the 5th round in November and he scored a unanimous call against Marco Antonio Rubio at the Alamo dome in San Antonio on Feb. 4.

Now he will fight Lee at the Sun Bowl, where Top Rank hopes to draw a group of some 40,000 to rival the last fight it probably did there in 1998 on which then-welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya protected his crown thru 3rd-round knockout against Patrick Charpentier of France.

Lee declared he doesn’t have any worries about going to battle Chavez on enemy turf.

“I’m actually looking forward to it,” he revealed. “I like having that bunker mentality when everything is against you. We’re going to train hard and Emanuel will have the right plan and we’ll go in there and get that belt. It’s my turn. I’ve waited a considerable time and it has been a long journey. The time is correct for me psychologically and physically and I am just happy it’s here.”
