Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. To Return in Early December, Says Nacho

By Miguel Rivera

According to Hall of Fame trainer, Nacho Beristain, former WBC middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KOs) is set return during the first weekend of December. The veteran trainer will begin working with him on October 22 at his home in Los Angeles.

Nacho says that on Friday December 1 or Saturday December 2, Chavez Jr. will be back in the ring at 168-169 pounds.

"He owes a lot, this is an opportunity to show the people of Sinaloa and Mexico what he can do," Nacho said to ESPN Deportes. "We made it clear that we have to work hard with him, he looks still chubby but he is working hard, he should not have problems in reaching 168 pounds. In this fight he will come in strong and with rhythm. I hope now he shows what he has."


Among the challenges for Beristáin, he said, is convincing Chavez that he should run at a relevant time and in the same way that he's training in the gym, because the veteran trainer says that's the only they will get better results.

Regarding the opponents, Nacho stated that he did not mention names, only the date, and that he is already training with Alejandro 'Tyson' Martínez in California. Once Nacho arrives in Los Angeles, he said that they are going to look for a gym to work with.

"For now he is going to train at home, I have to go first to Ocotlán, Jalisco, to a world championship fight of Yésica Nery and then I go to Las Vegas for a fight of Shoki Sakai and two more, and from there on the 22nd I'm going to Los Angeles to work full time with Julio," explained Nacho.

Finally, Nacho said he will talk to WBC super bantamweight champion Rey Vargas to see if he has another defense before the end of the year, and if so, then see if he wants to go to California or prefers to train in Mexico and he will leave him a full plan in order to prepare.

Chavez Jr. has been out of the ring since suffering a decision loss to Canelo Alvarez in May, in a fight that took place at catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.
