Chavez Jr: Canelo Needs Respect, Younger Opponents

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is not paying any attention to the recent challenge from trainer "Chepo" Reynoso, who said Saul "Canelo" Alvarez would be willing to move up to 160-pounds to face Chavez in the near future. Chavez has advised Alvarez, the WBC champion at 154-pounds, to earn his respect by facing younger opponents who can actually fight.

"Please, they have to be serious. They are not in position on setting the conditions or stating who will particpate in the fight. The fight concerns everyone. It's not worth the time to make any statements [in return], because we know [the fight] won't happen," Chavez told Sal Rodriguez.

"First, [Alvarez] should show how good he can be with fighters his own age, who are competitive, that people have seen, and he can earn his respect and then we can talk."

It's kinda ironic that while Chavez and Alvarez are going at each other's throats with verbal assaults, they chicken out of fights with real fighters. Cotto, Margarito, Martinez, Angulo, Williams. Heck, even Cintron, Pavlik, and Kirkland! How the **** long…

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;10776137]At least Chavez won his title against a champion at the right weight. [B]Canelo won his vacant title at a catchweight[/B] against a guy who never fought at that weight before. And Zbik > than everyone on Canelo's resume combined…

By 20, Alvarez has already fought tougher comp than 25 year old Chavez Jr. Very sad.

wow chavez jr. insulting another fighter, thats pretty sad considering he sucks big time. both guys are below average fighters who have not faced real opposition.

both guys are hype jobs chavez jr has been around longer and has a win over zbik which barely put him over canelo comp but canelo is still 20 years old and is fighting better opponents now than chavez jr…
