Sulaiman Advises Chavez Jr. To Get a New Trainer

World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman has advised former champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to get a new trainer. Chavez lost a near one-sided twelve round decision to Sergio Martinez in September. He probably lost the first eleven rounds, but managed to badly hurt and then drop Martinez in the final round. Afterwards Chavez tested positive for marijuana and is facing a suspension.

During his training camp for Martinez, Chavez took many days off and often trained at his home. He tried to strike a deal with veteran coach Nacho Beristain in December, but they weren't able to agree on the money. Chavez was trained for his last few fights by Freddie Roach.

Sulaiman says Roach focuses most of his attention on superstar Manny Pacquiao and "forgets about his other fighters." He said Chavez needs a coach who can spend the necessary time grooming him. Amir Khan had a similar complaint when he left Roach to start training with Virgil Hunter. Sulaiman also blamed the marijuana charge on a mishap in Chavez's camp and stated the following - "what happened is that a stupid assistant administered a drug containing marijuana and then he tested positive in the drug test."

One trainer mentioned to potentially train Chavez is Robert Garcia of Oxnard, California. Sulaiman said Garcia "is very good coach."

The more they try and justify Chavez weed smoking is the more sinister the whole thing looks in the sense that I wonder what else they would cover up and excuse. They're babying the youth too much and because of that he will never grow up. Fucking up is an essential part of life for those looking...

I realize that Don Jose is Chavez's godfather, but I must say it's pretty unseemly for a guy with that much influence (from a supposedly neutral perspective) on his career to be acting like he's part of the kid's entourage and/or one of his advisors. I've seen like 4 of these articles about Sula...
