Chavez Stays Away From Oxnard After Roach/Ariza Beef
By Salvador Rodriguez
For the time being, former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32KOs) is going to stay away from training with Robert Garcia at his Oxnard gym in California.
Instead, Chavez will train in Santa Monica, California, in the gym of the filmmaker Peter Berg.
Chavez, who is preparing for a March 1 rematch with Bryan Vera, was alarmed after witnessing all of the drama two months ago between Freddie Roach and Alex Ariza, who used to train Chavez as a team. Now Ariza works with Garcia. Chavez wants to avoid being caught in the middle or the ongoing feud between both gyms.
"For now I am preparing with Vladimir Baldenebro. I have not decided if we are going to adjust to a new coach. I will not be a part of the problems and I think there is a tense situation there [at the Oxnard gym], and I do not want [to be around] people who can harm me and will continue for now with Vladimir," said Chavez.
I believe he did talk to nacho first but nacho said fudge that. I'mppretty sure I read that here a while backComment by FrankSucketts on 01-05-2014
Chavez isn't interested in a trainer who will push him, end of story.Comment by Bronx2245 on 01-05-2014
If Chavez Jr. was smart he would call Nacho. I don't know if there's bad blood with Marquez or Nacho. Even Bradley's trainer would make Jr. a better fighter!Comment by Box-Office on 01-05-2014
