WBC Fines Chavez Jr. $10K, Asks Him To Enter Rehab

“Any explanation or justification that I try to give about the recent events, will be of no use. That is why I want to say that I’m totally responsible of my actions, as well as the consequences thereof. I want to apologize to all the people who felt offended by my actions. I made them, and only I should face the consequences,” Chavez Jr. wrote in response to testing postive for marijuana in the aftermath of his loss to Sergio Martinez on September 15th.

“I can say that I will come out of this, and it will help me become stronger, I will do my best to change. This begins a new stage in my career. I will train towards achieving new targets, one of which is without doubt the rematch with Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.”

The World Boxing accepts the above message as a declaration of guilt and repentance of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, as well as the nobility which is evident in his apology to the Mexican public, and to all those who have always trusted him.

As president of the WBC, I have got in touch with the Board of Governors, and we have decided to fine him $10,000 USD. That money will be donated to an institution for children who suffer from cancer.

We also are asking Julio to attend a rehabilitation center and want official confirmation that he's so doing. THE WBC will open its doors once again to him, so he can continue his successful career when he feels he can return. The WBC won’t suspend Julio Cesar for an undefined time, because that is not going to help him. The suspension will last as long as the rehab center advises.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has showed his humanitarian side, by having helped his father Julio Cesar Chavez Gonzalez to enter a rehabilitation center. After his treatment we want Julio Cesar Chavez to became an example for youth.

The WBC is no court or institution that permantently punishes its athtletes. We believe in them, and we will always be in their corner. We have always done this, like in the case of Monzon and recently with Chisora. Now we want to guide a young Mexican boxer who got lost on the way, but is an idol. And we want him to recover.

The WBC recognizes and praises the outstanding good will and chivalry of Sergio Martinez and his agent by having taken a noble stand in this case.

Team Martinez ALWAYS take the noble stand. That's why I'm such a fan. I don't want the rematch with Jr. Sergio has only a couple fights left, and I want him to make some REAL money now. He, of all…
