" I think the kid is allot better fighter than people give him credit for", says Gates, " but lets see if he has any hart and fights me. Chavez has over twice as many fights as me but he fights all bums, I'll fight him any place, any time. If he's a real man he'll take the fight and see if he's half the fighter his Dad was".
Top Rank Boxing Promotions has been adding Chavez jr to most all of their fight cards yet an Agent for Top Rank says,"we do not pick who Julio fights, that's up to his Manager Fernando Beltran, who could not be reached for comment.
