Chavez Sr: Julio Jr. Will Remain at 160, Not Move Up

By Miguel Rivera

The legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. expects his son, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs), to remain at 160-pounds when he returns to action in 2013. Last Saturday, Chavez lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Sergio Martinez in Las Vegas. A few days later it was revealed that Chavez Jr. failed a post-fight drug test. The young boxer tested positive for marijuana.

Chavez Sr. says Julio's behavior "will change" from now on and things will be much different in the future. There are no issues with making the middleweight limit and he wants his son to get a rematch with Martinez in 2013.

"He will remain at 160. There is no reason to go up. My son is still very young and he will learn from his mistakes," Chavez Sr. said. "He nearly had a dramatic finish and I think in a rematch things will definitely be different. But some things will have to change, a different preparation [for the fight]."

Chavez Jr is going to be sneaky and still find ways to smoke his weed while avoiding the tests discovering it.
