Chavez Sr. on The Problems With Julio, Martinez Rematch

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

The legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. discussed the recent controversies related to his son, former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1, 32KOs). Julio Jr. suffered his first loss as a pro on September 15th in Las Vegas when he dropped a twelve round decision to Sergio Martinez. Afterwards, he tested positive for marijuana. The young fighter is now facing a suspension and fine from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

In a recent televised interview, Julio Jr. said there were issues with his father in training camp. Chavez Sr. says the two of them have spoken and solved their issues.

"This is the last time I'm going to talk about this, because whatever we have to talk about in regards to my son, I will speak with him in private. We have spoken and we're fine. Thankfully, there is not a single problem. He has all of my love, my support, and as usual - I'm not going to get into his private life. Of course, I will defend my son tooth and nail against those who are always trying [attack him]... I will defend my son against any aggression, against any misunderstanding. But, what Julio says is true - my son wants to make his own way and he must be given the opportunity," Chavez Sr. said.

"But Julio will always have my support. We talked before he gave his statements, you saw them. He and I had a very good talk and we are all fine. Between me and my son, we don't have a single problem. The truth is, there are things that as a parent I did not like, but you have to understand also - he is not a little boy. He is grown and wants to forge his own path. I am here to help him, not to bother him."

Chavez Jr was dominated by Martinez for eleven rounds. He dropped the Argentine star in the twelfth and came very close to a knockout victory. Chavez Sr. predicts that his son will knock Martinez out in a rematch - if things are done the correct way in camp.

"You know that Julio did things the right way, Martinez would not win. Let bygones be bygones, but I feel if Julio is well prepared, and focused, then he has enough to knock Martinez out, and he will do it much quicker than they expect. But everything is in his hands and I have to give my son his space. Thank God that we spoke and he is aware of the mistakes that were made, but you learn from your defeats and my son will definitely come back stronger," Chavez Sr. said.

"Julio already displayed that when he started throwing punches in a round he nearly knocked him out. He fought and threw punches for only one round throughout the fight."

I wouldn't mind seeing a rematch as it was an entertaining fight. Keep in mind though that we now know Martinez had a bum knee in the last two rounds. It forced him to stay in the pocket and get…
