Omar Chavez: Other Fighters Have Lost - They Are Now Legends!

By Miguel Rivera

Junior middleweight contender Omar Chavez (36-5-1, 24 KOs) has no intention of retiring from the sport.

On Saturday night in Durango, Mexico, the 28-year-old boxer suffered another career loss when he was outworked and outboxed by Jose Carlos Paz of Argentina, who secured a ten round unanimous decision.

Nearly 5,000 fans in attendance were unable to get Chavez going, as he was barely throwing any punches during the contest.

Back in his last fight, in August of 2017, he was once against outboxed and outworked over ten rounds - and in that contest he was derailed by Roberto Garcia.

Last week, Omar's famous father - Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. - made it public that he issued an ultimatum to both of his sons. He advised them to start taking their careers seriously or retire immediately.

Chavez Sr. - regarded as the greatest Mexican fighter of all-time - has lost his patience with Omar and his older brother, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Omar is planning to head right back to the gym to continue working.

He promises to look better and come back stronger than ever before, but fans have heard this from Omar, and his brother, several times in the past.

A victory on Saturday may have put Omar on the road to facing WBO champion Jaime Munguia in the near future. Omar and Munguia share the same promoter. But that contest is now nothing more than a fantasy.

"I want to make a sincere apology to the people who supported me. To those who crucify me for having lost - God bless them. Not that I don't see things [of what went wrong], I'm aware of everything and I'll train harder, and I won't be sitting still in my fights or in my career," Omar stated.

"I may not be like my father who reached a record of 89-0 but there are many other fighters who lost at the start of their careers and are now legends. The war was lost but not the battle, I'll be back soon and better!"

Although he is not that bad, I think he lost his hunger after the Nazareth fight that ended in a tragedy. One of the fights I enjoyed watching of Omar was the Daniel Sandoval one.

Almost all great fighters lost, either at their end of their careers or to other great fighters. Not to someone like his last opponent that was a stepping stone to look a bit good
