Marquez: Canelo, Chavez Have To Learn From Mistakes

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican icon Juan Manuel Marquez is hoping the next generation of Mexican fighters, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., learn from their recent defeats and mistakes in the ring.

Canelo suffered his first career defeat when he lost a twelve round decision to the far more experienced Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 14. In September 2012, Chavez Jr. lost a twelve round decision to current WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. Chavez then struggled to make weight for last month's fight against Bryan Vera, and won a controversial ten round decision.

"Hopefully they use that experience, fix the mistakes and use that in their training and prepare [better for the next time]. Boxing is a very difficult, sport. What just happened [with Chavez], these things happen in boxing. A controversial decision in Chavez-Vera should not be blamed on Julio. There were qualified judges there and he was just doing his job as a boxer up in the ring. In the case of Canelo, Mayweather's experience and good condition [was too much]," Marquez told Alejandro Hernandez.

"Julio has to get it in his head that this is a difficult sport, a sport of dedication, and it is his responsibility to use all of his enthusiasm [in training camp."
