After two years of inactivity, former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is planning to return on a tentative date of June 22.
The last time Chavez Jr. saw action, he was dominated over twelve rounds by Canelo Alvarez back in May of 2016, at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.
"I've been out of boxing for two years, I've seen boxing from the inside and from the outside, I'll have another chance, but I have to take things seriously, there can be no more carelessness, I'm no longer a young man where I can do things that I should not do. I have faith that if I come back strong I will soon get a big fight," said Chavez Jr.
In this sense, the Son of the Legend pointed out that beyond thinking about shutting mouths in his return, he now feels renewed and with the firm desire to show that at 33 he is at his peak, both physically and mentally.
"I know I can give more, I have to prove it to myself. Now I see things from another angle, being without activity for two years made me think otherwise, what happened I already assimilated the past... we have to work hard again to take myself to the level that I had at one time and it led me to be the world champion," he said.
For now, he has been training for several weeks in Tijuana, along with the well-known coach Rómulo Quirarte, with whom he worked with a few years ago.
"I am in a stage of maturity, being realistic I have to fight three times this year. My return is scheduled on June 22, we are still looking for the opponent, but we are looking ahead, I do not want my career to go away. I'm at the right time to come back with everything. Physically, I feel better. If I train well, I think I have everything to be a world champion again, it's all about disciplining myself, taking things seriously and that's what I'm doing now," Chavez Jr. said.
