Chavez Sr.: Junior 'Probably' Going Back To Roach

By Keith Idec

Julio Cesar Chavez has indicated that his son will re-hire Freddie Roach as his head trainer following his fight Saturday night against Bryan Vera.

Mexico’s most beloved boxer will work his son’s corner Saturday night, but Chavez intimated that Roach’s return to their team would be good for the embattled ex-middleweight title-holder’s career.

“We have a lot of respect for Freddie Roach,” Chavez said during an Internet interview with Banner Promotions, which represents Vera. “Probably, after this fight Julio’s going to go back with Freddie Roach.”

Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32 KOs, 1 NC) hasn’t decided who’ll train him after facing Vera (23-6, 14 KOs) in their HBO “World Championship Boxing” main event at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Baldomir Valdinegro, one of Chavez Jr.’s longtime assistant trainers, has been his head trainer during what apparently was not an ideal training camp for what was changed this week to a 10-round light heavyweight fight against Vera. Robert Garcia — who trains Nonito Donaire, Brandon Rios and others — also has been mentioned as a potential trainer for Chavez Jr.

“I need to see how I do with this fight,” Chavez Jr. said on a conference call this week. “The guys have been working real hard in this camp and I have to see how I look and how I feel. I am not saying no to Robert Garcia or Freddie Roach. I just want to see what comes up next and we’ll go from there.”

For now, the former WBC middleweight champion is pleased that his legendary father will play an official role in his corner on Saturday night.

“The most important thing is he is going to work my corner,” said Chavez Jr., who’ll fight for the first time in more than a year when he squares off against Vera. “He has always been in my training camps, supervising it and looking over what I’m doing. But the key to all of this is he is going to be in the corner, giving instructions. Before, he would come up [to the corner from a ringside seat] yelling and screaming, and no one would know what is going on. He was doing it unprofessionally and now he is doing it professionally. He is now going to be in the corner, giving me instructions, and that is going to be very important.”

This sorry ass sack said "THE GUYS have been working real hard during this camp." He couldn't even fix his face to lie and say he was working hard.

[QUOTE=Adamjr91]Chavez Sr. must have been an awful father to have produced a child like Chavez Jr. Smh so much potential but Jr will never fulfill it.[/QUOTE] I think you have some unrealistic expectations of what chavez Jr couldof done in the ring. He's a good fighter but nothing more then t...

OK well he will be going back to get KTFO lol. Chavez Jr. needs to continue to stay at 160 and away from the 168-175 division where he will get wrecked. Funny part is he should be at 175 in all honesty. He stays at 160 because he knows he will be a mountain of **** at 168 and 175. He wins by bull...

Hey it's hard being the son of a legend: Michael Jordans sons, Will Smiths son, etc. Usually they can never live up to their father or just become lazy because they have everything already from getting pampered aka Magic Johnsons son and Jackie Chan's lol Hope for Freddie Roach he (Chavez) don...
