Peter Manfredo Jr. wanted one more title shot and he's apparently got his wish.
Manfredo Jr., ranked No. 5 by the WBC, will fight undefeated WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on November 19 at Reliant Arena in Houston. The fight will be on HBO.
This will be Chavez's first title defense since winning the belt in June. He is currently 43-0-1 with 30 knockouts.
Manfredo, 30, is 37-6 with 20 knockouts. He's only fought once this year, winning a 10-round unanimous decision over Daniel Edouard back on Jan. 14. Manfredo has won six straight fights since losing to Sakio Bika in 2008.
