Julio Cesar Chavez Sr is tweeting that a fight between his son Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and former 4-time world title challenger Martin Murray is a possibility for October in Las Vegas, Nevada or Texas. Murray (35-4-1, 16 KOs) says he’s game and interested in taking the fight.

Presumably, the weight for the Chavez Jr. vs. Murray fight would be in the super middleweight division. Chavez Jr. showed in his last fight that he cannot fight below 168. Heck, Chavez Jr. might not even be able to fight at a high level at 168. He might be better off using his A-side muscle to weasel a catch-weight at 172 or just having the fight at 175.

That would make the most sense for Chavez Jr., given how weight drained he looked in getting down to the 164.5-pound catch-weight for his fight against Saul Canelo Alvarez on May 6.

“October LA Vegas Texas Boxing @jcchavezjr vs @martin_murray_boxing waiting! Day! Mexico vs. Ingaterra,” said Chavez Sr. on his Twitter.

Murray, 34, then replied back on his Twitter with this post:“Octobers good for me. Get your team to contact mine,” said Murray.

Murray is still a fringe level world class fighter at this stage in his career. over-the-hill. Murray will win this fight by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision if the fight takes place.

What’s unclear is whether Chavez Sr. is mindlessly posting on his social media site or if the fight is in the works. If this fight comes off, it’s the last chance saloon for Murray and Chavez Jr. The loser of the fight would be terrible shape career-wise. As bad as Chavez Jr. looked in losing to Canelo, I don’t see how he’ll be able to fight much better fighting at 168.
