Sulaiman: Chavez Jr. Has Gambling Issue, Spent Millions

By Miguel Rivera

José Sulaimán, the President of the World Boxing Council, is alleging that former middleweight champion Julio César Chávez Jr. has a bad gambling problem and "spent millions of dollars" in casinos, a situation that has affected his boxing career. Among the Mexican press, there have always been stories about Chavez Jr.'s bad habits at the casino tables.

"[He makes all of this money] and just gives it [right back] to the casinos, and that is truly terrible. He has lost his head. He is no longer the young man that I knew. He's become sour and has a passion to throw his money away and that isn't normal," said Sulaiman, who says the young Mexican star has also hurled insults at him.

Chavez (46-1, 32KOs) is already in enough trouble. After suffering a decision loss to Sergio Martinez on September 15th, Chavez tested positive for marijuana and now faces a suspension and fine from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The WBC fined Chavez $20,000 dollars and suspended him until he completes a drug rehab program.

Sounds like Chavez will need a big fight fast after rehab to pay off those gambling debts.

Chavez impressed me.. not as much as Sergio, but he impressed me with his resilience.
