Chavez Jr. Parting From Goossen, Eyes Robert Garcia

By Miguel Rivera

As previously reported, Promociones del Pueblo announced that former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2-1, 32KOs) would make his return on July 18th against Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24KOs).

After more than a year off, Chavez Jr. returned to the ring last month and was stopped by top light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara in nine rounds. The fight with Reyes is going to take place at super middleweight. Chavez admitted after his last fight that a move to 175-pounds, after being a middleweight for most of his career, was a big mistake.

Reyes lost a ten round majority decision last year to Abie Han and came back in January to win a decision over countryman David Lopez.

According to Osvaldo Küchle, director of Promociones del Pueblo, they were trying to get Matthew Macklin but those discussions presented issues because Macklin is not willing to face Chavez beyond a catch-weight of 164-pounds.

Chavez Jr. says the fight with Reyes has yet to be finalized and negotiations are ongoing.

He also says a new training is in order. For his April return, he had used veteran coach Joe Goossen, but claims there was some sort of issue that happened and now he wants to train with another, and Robert Garcia is now he preferred choice. Chavez has often mentioned using Garcia in the past but it never came together.

"I'll talk to him. It's something that I've had in mind for a while. I have my uncle Rodolfo (Chavez), Vladimir Baldenebro and Luis Cornejo, and I think [Garicia] would be a great addition. I hope we can achieve something," said Chavez Jr. to ESPN Deportes.

The problem with Chavez Jr isn't the trainer situation, there was nothing wrong with Roach or Gossen. The problem was that Chavez Jr has The Chad Dawson syndrome, where he wants to be the boss and have his family around,…

[QUOTE=HanzGruber;15722123]He should go to Floyd sr. I know him and Floyd are friends. Maybe he can motivate him[/QUOTE] The shoulder roll would take Chavez Jr's game to another level, make it happen boxing gods.
