Julio C. Chavez Jr. Apologizes: I Take Full Responsibility

By Miguel Rivera

Middleweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has issued an apology, which comes a day after the Nevada State Athletic Commission confirmed the Mexican superstar tested positive for marijuana. Chavez (46-1-1, 32KOs), who lost a twelve round decision to Sergio Martinez last week in Las Vegas, failed the post-fight drug test. Chavez now stands to receive a one year suspension, and a hefty fine, from the Nevada commission.

Members of Chavez's team, including his father Julio Sr. and trainer Freddie Roach, were very upset with the way he refused to listen to anyone during training camp.

"Any explanation or justification that I can attempt to provide about the recent developments will not be enough or not convincing, so I want to make it known to everyone that I take full responsibility for my actions and the consequences thereof."

"I want to apologize to all of those who are disappointed or aggrieved by my behavior. Only I know the cause [of the failed test] and only I will take responsibility.  In contrast, I can say that I will emerge stronger from these events and I will vindicate my image in society"

"Everything that happened generates an environment conducive to stopping and thinking about the future. Now its time to create the new Julio Cesar Chavez, to begin a stage to restore my career. I will prepare myself physically and mentally, to achieve new goals in the short term [and one of them] is definitely a rematch with Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez."

"I take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support that I have received and also recognize all of those who have sent messages of any kind."
