Cant say that I didn't see this coming. I honestly believe Bob will talk Margarito into one last payday, and he'll share the ring with Chavez. I can further see a couple of soft touches at 168 because Julio fights quite often, then a Pavlik clash will be built up.
Im guessing that careful matchmaking will play a part in a Ward fight, but I dont see that until a Pavlik fight is done and Julio is victorious. No need for Bob to put Julio in there with any dangerous guys until then.
Maybe they'll do like they did at MW, offer Ward a shitty mandatory and let the fight fall apart, strip him of the title(s), and let Chavez win 'em from a fruitcake opponent. That way, there will be some type of reason to get that fight going. It say sound dumb, but we've already seen it happen.
Overall, I'm interested in this fight. Seeing as how Sergio's team conducted themselves in route to the Chavez fight (begging and putting him in there with foreign mandatories, while Julio fought everybody), I think TR will get the Ward fight before Team Martinez does.
That's my honest opinion, and if it sounds shitty, then more than likely, it will go something like that...especially if TR is involved. This IS boxing that we're talking about people.
