Top Rank planned to officially announce Chavez vs Golovkin for July 19th last Saturday at their Pacquiao vs Bradley event.
However, Top Rank will not allow Chavez to fight Golovkin unless he signs a contract extension with the promotional company. Up until now, Chavez has refused to sign a contract extension. He currently has just 1 fight left with them.
Chavez Jr: “They want to make me sign an extension of my contract, but they are not giving me the money that I’m actually worth to fight. They have never showed me numbers that I generate and they also want to force me into an [extension of] three fights for less money than I’m being offered elsewhere,” Chavez said.
"All I ask is that there is no extension and I’m paid what I should be, [given] the percentage that I deserve. I am open to work with Top Rank, as long as they want to work with me one hundred percent, fight-by-fight."
"My father was not very well taken care of [during his career]. He is very proud of me because I’m making these decisions, and he has supported me. We talked about it, because he doesn’t want me to take the same abuses." Record.com.Mx
➡️Abner Mares: “You can adorn yourself with someone else’s wings, but you can’t fly with them. Sorry @jhonnygbox”.
➡️Jhonny Gonzalez: “I don’t need to fly with your wings. With 1 hook, I cut your wings. And while they were counting you, I was flying with the WBC belt”.
*Mares kept it 100% classy after the fight. I’m not sure why he’d throw shots at Jhonny Gonzalez now.
