Marquez: Entire Team To Blame For Chavez Drug Issue
By Miguel Rivera
WBO 140-pound champion Juan Manuel Marquez acknowledged he was shocked by the news that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. tested positive for marijuana after his fight with Sergio Martinez, which took place on September 15th. Marquez feels that the entire team, from the bottom to the top, should take the blame for the postive test result - and not just the fighter himself.
"Neither myself nor anyone else expected Junior to test positive. I think we now have to look on the bright side of all of this. He will not make this mistake again, this will help him mature," Marquez said. "As [Chavez] wins so does the entire team, and his mistakes should be placed on them as well. It's not just a problem for Chavez, it's a problem for the entire team."
Marquez faces Manny Pacquiao for a fourth time on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He Mexican veteran calls himself the "champion of the people" and in closing he promised "I'll prove that I'm better than him."
