remove kitchen flourescent light/add chandelier

I took the flourescent light off the ceiling over the kitchen island, only to find the wiring hole was a little over a foot away from the center of the island where I want to hang the chandelier. If I make a hole over the center how do I get the wiring over to it? Is it possible?

2 possibilities 1] You can buy new boxes with extend-able mounts, run a cable from the old box to the new and put a blank cover on the old .
or 2] if the cables runs in the right direction you can pull it out of the old box and reroute it to the new.
