Nacho is Confident That He Can Help Change Chavez Jr.

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Veteran trainer Igancio "Nacho" Beristain is in dark about the future intentions of former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs). As previously reported, Chavez Jr. contacted Nacho a month ago to discuss the possibility of working together. The two of them were unable to agree on the money, with Chavez offering an amount that Nacho felt was too low.

In his last fight, Chavez lost a twelve round decision to Sergio Martinez in September. It was later revealed that Chavez tested positive for marijuana.

Nacho is confident that he can change Chavez around, but he wants to be paid correctly for his efforts. Chavez never got back to him.

"Some time ago, Julio Jr. wanted to come to work with me. He offered me some money, but it was an amount that I would not accept. I gave him my rate and told him that he would have to put in 100% of hard work and I told him that because I work serious. I told him not to take it as an insult, but if he decides to pay me what I asked - I'll agree to train him. Now I do not know what to think. I can not say anything more if there is no further discussion on this issue," Nacho said.

"I can do something with him if given the chance. The thing is, he trained for that [Martinez] fight with pure offense and did not care about defense. I believe that Julio can do a lot, as long as he's not sent in there just to catch punches on his jaw."

[QUOTE=Muscles72;12918917]...I mean nacho can help him but his style is much different than what nacho is used to training other fighters jr. Is more of a brawler I think Robert Garcia would be a better fit jr. needs discipline more…

In my opinion, Nacho is the best trainer in boxing today and certainly could help Chavez Jr. However, lack of discipline and a diva attitude aren't things Nacho is gonna put up with even for big$$$$$$

Would it help him? Sure nacho would beef up that defense.
