Chavez Jr. Motivated By His Father as Zbik Bout Nears

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is getting a lot of motivation from his father, the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., as the fight with undefeated Sebastion Zbik draws near. This Saturday Chavez challenges Zbik for the WBC middleweight title at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Julio Sr. has become involved with his son's training camp and he's giving him a lot of training tips to overcome the tough Zbik and correcting many of his son's mistakes. Chavez Jr. is being trained by Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.

"Seeing that my dad is happy with my work has encouraged me a lot. He believes that there are some details to improve, but I'm training hard. He's been giving me advice and it has really helped me a lot. We are at the stage where there is no choice but to work hard. I'm very happy because for me this fight is a great motivator. I have confidence in my skills and I am sure I will be fully prepared to win the fight," Chavez Jr. told Sal Rodriguez.
