Chavez Jr. Changes Mind, Ask Dad To Work Corner
By Salvador Rodriguez
Former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1, 32KOs) has had a change of heart. Last week Chavez Jr. said that his father, the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., would no longer be a part of his training camps. In a sudden move, Chavez has asked his father to help prepare him and work his corner on September 7th, when he faces Brian Vera (23-6, 14KOs) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Chavez was trained for his last few fights by Freddie Roach.
This will be the first time in Julio's career that his father will work his corner.
"I believe that I can contribute much more to him [by working his corner]," Chavez Sr. said. "This way I can contribute much more to him with my experience."
Daddy will be the one hyped about the fight, while Jr's eating breakfast at midnight in the swimming pool, having BBQ's in East LA, getting high with his girlfriend etc..Comment by Verstyle on 07-31-2013
