Chavez Sr. Impressed By Omar: He's Ready For Paez

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez

The is past Saturday night at the Foro Promocasa in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, welterweight contender Omar “Businessman” Chavez (27-0-1, 20 KOs) stopped Alberto Martínez (15-2, 10 KOs) in the first round. Omar's legendary father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., is very critical of his fighting sons, but he was impressed with the quick victory.

"I liked the attitude of Omar. No doubt he is coming along. I'm also pleased with what I've seen [of him] in training. If this continues, he will soon move on to other levels," Chavez Sr. said

Chavez is now likely going to face the son of another Mexican legend, welterweight Jorge “Maromerito” Paez Jr. (29-4-1, 18 KOs).

"People keep asking me [about the fight]. Maybe it will happen, but Omar is ready. There must be a good negotiation with [Zanfer President] Fernando Beltran. If they come to an agreement, my child is ready," Chavez Sr. said.

Paez looked fat and was breathing heavily from his mouth in round 2, the guy has power but he need a good camp, Omar Chavez was smart to go to train with Fernando Montiel dad
