Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (41-0-1, 30 KOs) will next face Polish light middleweight Pawel Wolak (27-1, 17 KOs) on September 11 in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. The bout will be contested in the middleweight division even though Wolak has recently fought as a light middleweight.
There were talks of Chavez Jr potentially meeting Kelly Pavlik for a future bout but those talks have now turned towards Miguel Cotto. Top Rank is working on a December 4 bout between Chavez Jr and Cotto, likely for Cotto’s newly acquired light middleweight title. Cotto won the belt from Yuri Foreman at Yankee Stadium. Pawel Wolak defeated James Moore on the undercard of Cotto-Foreman.
