A possible return opponent for Yuri Foreman, who has been recuperating from a torn ACL and meniscus, is Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Chavez (41-0-1, 30 KOs) is scheduled to fight Alfonso Gomez on December 4.

According to Lem Satterfield, Top Rank head Bob Arum lays out a rather convoluted series of events that leads to Foreman (28-1, 8 KOs) fighting Chavez. If Chavez beats Gomez and Antonio Margarito either beats Manny Pacquiao or looks good in a loss, Miguel Cotto could get a rematch with Margarito.

Arum is currently targeting Cotto-Chavez for early next year. But if Cotto gets the rematch with Margarito, Arum has considered Yuri Foreman as a replacement to fight Chavez. Foreman likely won't fight until 2011 while he recovers from those injuries sustained against Cotto this past June.
