Derry middleweight John Duddy says he is expecting to fight unbeaten Julio Cesar Chavez Jr at the 15,000-capacity Alamodome in San Antonio on 26 June.

Duddy's last bout was a split decision win against Michael Medina at the Dallas Cowboys stadium in March.

Mexican Chavez last fought in November but then was banned for seven months for testing positive for a diuretic that often serves as a masking agent.

The winner will take a step closer to a world title fight against Kelly Pavlik.
