Chavez Jr: Canelo an Ingrate, Scared of Golovkin, Owes The WBC

By Miguel Rivera

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has continued to fire verbal bombs at his Mexican rival, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

The two superstars have been trading heated words in the last few days, as their anticipated showdown is less than a month away.

Canelo and Chavez Jr. will collide in the main event of an HBO Pay-Per-View on May 6th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. There is a catch-weight in place of 164.5-pounds.

Canelo lashed out at Chavez jr. a few days ago, stating that the "Son of a Legend" talks a lot of "sh*t" and only says "stupid things."

Chavez Jr. believes Canelo is angered because he was criticized for delaying a potential fight with middleweight king Gennady Golovkin. He feels Canelo ran away from Golovkin, and also blasted Canelo for vacating the WBC middleweight title because the sanctioning body was pressuring him to make a mandatory defense against Golovkin.

Chavez Jr. says the WBC helped Canelo win his first world title, when they sanctioned at fight between Canelo and Matthew Hatton - who was a welterweight - for the vacant title. The bout took place at a catch-weight of 150-pounds. Canelo blew the weight, coming in at 151.5 and the fight went forward after Hatton was compensated.

"[Canelo got mad at me after] I said he turned away from Golovkin... When he says that he does not need the sanctioning bodies, he forgot when the World Council helped him and he fought against Mathew Hatton, who was not in his weight division. So he's an ungrateful boy, his feet are not well planted on the ground. On May 6 I'm going to make those feet plant, because it's not going to be an easy fight," Chavez Jr. said.

"I tested positive before [on a drug test], and he's trying to make me out to be a dirty fighter, but I never took anything that could hurt another boxer. I think he got angry because I told him the truth, which a few people are encouraged to tell him, that he has been afraid of Golovkin."

Also, Chávez Jr. sent a "message" to Canelo, in which he referred to the boxer's former girlfriend, Marisol González. Chavez was responding to Canelo questioning the legitimacy of his fanbase.

"My fans are real, my wife is real, but his girlfriend is not real, the one that Televisa gave him," Chavez Jr. said.

[QUOTE=thegonzo;17592862]Triggered lol. I know plenty of latinos (Mexicans, Mexican-Americans, Argentinos, the list goes on) that don't appreciate Canelo's hypocrisy. He's pulling Mayweather-like theatrics. Don't get me wrong, we still root for Canelo, but c'mon man just fight GGG. FYI Marquez…

[QUOTE=_Maxi;17590780]If Canelo vacated because of financial reasons, why did he move back to 154 announcing he's not a middleweight? Then after one fight in which he had to avoid VADA and be naked to make weight, says he can't make…
