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."

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…

Get your son to be a little more disciplined and not cancel training sessions with the head trainer to instead train in your luxurious rental home with your fat friend. I mean, what 40% of Chavez Jr showed that lost…
