Chavez-Zbik: Freddie Roach Hopes To Start Camp on 4/2

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Trainer Freddie Roach is hoping to get Julio César Chávez Jr. (42-0, 30KOs) in training camp by April 2. Roach doesn't want Chavez to be rusty when he challenges Sebastian Zbik for the WBC middleweight title on June 4. After a career of having at least three bouts per year, Chavez only had a single bout in 2010 and so far he's had a single fight in 2011. He won a ten round decision win in January over Billy Lyell. Roach plans to increase his workload to make it the toughest camp of Julio's career.

"We are not gong to fight as expected [on March 19], but the work in the gym must be very hard get past his inactivity. Based on the last thing I heard, the fight would take place over here, in Las Vegas. I hope that on April 2, we'll begin preparing," Roach said.
