Chavez Sr. Will Help Ariza To Prepare Julio For Hearns

By Jhonny Gonzalez

For his upcoming defense, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (43-0-1, 30 KOs) will not have trainer Freddie Roach in his camp, but there won't be a shortage of experienced parties looking to help him. As previously reports, strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza will be by side, and possibly Jose Luis Lopez, and now Julio's father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., had promised to help his son prepare for the upcoming fight with Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20 KOs) on September 17 in Mexico.

"For Julio to be a complete fighter, he must throw the jab and move more from the waist. That's what we're going to focus on. I think Julio has enough intelligence to correct his mistakes and show the progress. We're going to see about training in Tijuana because because far away from Culiacán will keep him away from distractions," Chavez Sr. told Sal Rodriguez.

Chavez Jr. and his father, as well as Ariza, are going to meet and figure out if the training will be held in Tijuana or Culiacan.

"We've seen some videos of Ronald Hearns. He is a good fighter, and also tall and there is plenty to hit to the body. Being with Roach at the Wildcard, I had the opportunity to spar with guys like him, so it won't be surprising," Chavez Jr. said.

"Fighting on the inside may be the best [strategy] for me, and going to the body has produced results, but there is a lot to improve with my defense. I have to be at 100%, because I'm the only one who will suffer if I did not prepare well."

La verdad es que Chavez Jr. no va a enfrentar a nadie de la elite sino tiene a Roach a su lado, y como Roach esta ocupado con Pacquiao, al Jr. no le quedó mas remedio que buscarse un rival…

THis is what I have been saying all along.. Jr. has no jab, and without a jab he is never going to beat the elite fighters out there and without some decent footwork his reign is going to be short…
