FORMER world middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr wants to get back to the top of the sport as he prepares to end a 17 month hiatus this weekend when he fights Dominik Britsch.

Chavez, son of Mexican legend Julio Cesar Chavez Snr, will fight Britsh at a 169lb catchweight – one pound over the super-middleweight limit – in Mexico on Saturday night.

Chavez Jnr has not fought since a 10-round decision win over Marcos Reyes in July 2015, which followed an upset retirement loss to Andrzej Fonfara at light-heavyweight.
