Carl Froch, the British super middleweight champion, might fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a bout in October in Las Vegas.
Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum told Ring TV he’s looking to set up a fight between the two. Arum, whose company represents Chavez, said he’s speaking with Froch’s promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, a few days ago.
“I’ve talked to Eddie Hearn and we talked at length, Carl Moretti and myself on Monday,” Arum told Ring TV. “We went through all of the permutations and had conversations and we reviewed the revenue streams and so forth and he’s going to be getting back to us.”
“Eddie will be in Brooklyn this weekend because he has Rose fighting Andrade. So he and Carl will talk and they will call me up,” added Arum. “Hopefully, we’ll have some sort of tentative understanding but it is only at that point that I can make a proposal to Chavez on the prospect.”
Froch, who will turn 37 soon, recently defeated George Groves a few weeks ago.
Froch is also slated to partake in a BBC TV show on Saturdays called “Tumble.”
“After a fight of such magnitude it will be great for me to get my body and mind stuck straight into a new discipline,” he said, according to World Boxing News.
