Chavez Jr takes on undefeated world champion Sebastian Zbik of Germany in a WBC World Middleweight Championship bout at the STAPLES Center on June 4 in Los Angeles.

"Zbik is solid, a champion who will be in top condition. That, I know," Roach said.

Zbik vs. Chavez Jr will be televised on HBO After Dark (10 pm et, 7 pm pt).
