Nearly seven months after getting snagged with dirty piss, the WBC has reinstated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Soon to again be ranked by the WBC and eligible to compete, the 27-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) is expected to return to the squared circle on June 22 in Mexico City.

Junior last fought in September when he relinquished the WBC middleweight title by unanimous decision to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.

Following the bout against Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs), Chavez, who was arrested for driving shitfaced in January 2012 and pinched juicing in November 2009, tested positive for marijuana.

Despite claiming the THC came from using cannabis-laden eye drops, the Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended “The Legend Continues.”

Brian Vera and Matthew Macklin are the names most frequently mentioned as candidates to scrap Chavez.

In all likelihood, despite the layoff and regardless of who the opponent is, Chavez will emerge victorious this summer in “The City of Palaces.”

Hence, provided Martinez trumps unbeaten British contender Martin Murray on April 27 in Buenos Aires, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and the badass Argentinean will probably meet in a rematch at some point in the autumn.
