I think Cotto/Chavez Jr would be good.... it would make as a good gauge to see if Chavez is making any progress and actually gettin better with Ariza and Roach and to see if Cotto still has a pulse left.. it would sell.. it would add heat to the Mexico vs PR rivalry... and it would actually be some what entertaining fight. Cottos never in a boring fight and Chavez loves to be in your face eating punches.. with a heavy handed puncher like Cotto this could play out to be a blood bath.
Cotto-Chavez Jr would be good. Economically HUGE! How much does Cotto have left, and could Chavez Jr. pass a test against someone who could be a threat? However, we may have to wait for that. Hearns I think is going to be out of the picture, and they are going for Manfredo in November. UGGHH!
Seriously, Jose Sulaiman is the only one behind Julio's kid. Jr. seems like a nice kid. He is going to almost have to fight guys that don't represent a threat, because any half-assed decent fighter is going to beat him. Maybe that opponent won't get the decision, but at least unofficially beat him. The WBC and Arum can only protect Julio Jr. for so long.
At least Chavez Jr. vs. Cotto would be war. And it's an interesting fight, despite ugly WBC politics giving Chavez Sergio Martinez's title in the first place.
