Chavez Sr. Not Happy With Jr.'s Camp, Talks Rematch

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

The legenday Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. is not happy with the way his son, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., handled his training camp for last Saturday's fight against Sergio Martinez at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Chavez Jr. skipped several days of training and often stayed away from the gym. Instead he trained in the livingroom of his rented home in Las Vegas.

He was outboxed for most of the eleven rounds, before badly hurting, dropping, and nearly stopping Martinez in the twelfth and final round. Chavez Jr. nearly duplicated the incredible accomplishment of his father. In March of 1990, Chavez Sr. was badly down on points and rallied in the tweflth round to stop Meldrick Taylor with only a few seconds remaining in the fight.

"What Jr. did in the ring against Martinez was only 40% of him. I don't know what happened. There is no justification or excuses. This is going to be a valuable experience for him. He didn't box for practically the entire fight. The truth is, he did things his way for this preparation and because of this things did not go as they should have," Chavez Sr. said.

"I hope that he understands what happened. He was about to repeat my knockout of Taylor. My son had everything to win against Martinez. A rematch could happen in mid-2013. I think if he starts [fighting hard in the early rounds], like he did at the end, [the rematch] will play out in the same manner that it ended, where Julio was about to win by knockout."

He needs to cut with Roach.Needs a jab, an straight right (specially against asouthpaw like Martinez) and better footwork.Berinsatain, Steward or pedro Díaz would be better.He has the physical atribytes and natural talent to be a great fighter, but right now is incomplete and undeveloped.

[QUOTE=g.goodman25]We all got to think about it, Sr. did drugs, drink so Jr. just following in his footprint. The diffrence in them two is Sr. trained hard at the gym, Jr. drinking and training at home so he won't get pull over by the police.[/QUOTE] Sr. looked like he was on dat powda at da f...

You have to ask yourself… If Chavez Jr. had won 11 rounds and Martinez knocked down Chavez Jr. in the 12th… NOBODY would be saying Martinez deserves a rematch…. I am a Chavez Jr. fan because his father is my favorite fighter of all time… but Chavez Jr. got beat easily by Martinez, one punch shoul...

[QUOTE=chiguy91]this is just a learning experience for chavez jr. he should be able to fully comprehend what he did wrong and fix his mistakes. only reason i'd be down to see a rematch is to see martinez get paid. otherwise, i suggest chavez jr moves up. he can have good fights at 168 with guys l...
