THE FIGHT IS ON FOR MAY 6, 2016.  CINCO DE MAYO WEEKEND… MEXICO VS MEXICO!!!

 

SAUL “CANELO” ALVAREZ VS. JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR.

 

MORE TO COME!

We have a Twitter  war of words between Golden Boy Promotions’ promoter Oscar De La Hoya and JC Chavez, Jr.

Oscar says Chavez Jr has been lying on Twitter and  should sign the contract that was sent to his manager.

Chavez Jr retorts by saying Saul “Canelo” Alvarez wants five times (5Xs) the salary he’s been offered ($25 million for Alvarez, to $5 million for Junior).

See a set of tweet below:

JC Chavez Jr translation:

YOU NEED TO RESPECT MORE THE FIGHTERS. I NEVER LIKED TO HEAR YOUR REALITY. ALL NEED EACH OTHER CHAMP.

In the main event of the Showtme Championship Boxing doubleheader on July 18th in El Paso, Texas, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) meets fellow Mexican brawler Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24 KOs) in a ten-round super middleweight bout. The co-feature has Puerto Rican Olympian McJoe Arroyo (16-0, 8 KOs) and Arthur Villanueva (27-0, 14 KOs) of the Philippines vying for the vacant IBF super flyweight championship. [South Africa’s Zolani Tete vacated the title because he was unsatisfied with the result of the IBF purse bid].

Chavez Jr. is the first fighter to train at Robert Garcia’s new boxing academy in Riverside, which opened June 8th. Garcia formerly trained all of his boxers at his well-known gym in Oxnard, Calif.

Julio Cesar Chavez, arguably the greatest Mexican fighter of all time, made an appearance during his son’s workout to show his support and offer words of encouragement.

Here is what Chavez, his trainer and his Hall of Fame father had to say about the upcoming fight at the Riverside gym:

JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR. (ex-WBC middleweight champion):

“I think Robert Garcia was the best option for me after my last fight. He speaks Spanish and knows the Mexican style. He has trained a lot of champions and I have a good connection with him.

“I missed the basics of boxing training for the last fight. Since I had such a long layoff, I needed to get back to the basics and I never did.

“I feel like I am in a good place right now. I am confident in my boxing ability because I know I am in the right condition. I sparred 10 rounds yesterday, this never happened in my last fight.

“I must win this fight and then everyone will see that I am capable of fighting the big names like [Gennady] Golovkin and [Carl] Froch.

“I must stay prepared and focus on my current opponent. He’s only 27 and has the ability.

“I learned a lot in my fight against [Andrzej] Fonfara. I really felt his punches, I became very tired. He taught me that I needed to spend more time in the gym and on my strategy. But I don’t think it was the wrong decision to fight him.

“I am currently training not just for my fight with [Marcos] Reyes, but also for a potential rematch with Fonfara.

“I feel like I need to have a dominant performance to show my fans what I am capable of. I must work my jab and use my defense.

“For this fight I will be at 168, but I am not sure what I will weigh for my fights in the future. I’m ready for less than 168 to face opponents like Canelo [Alvarez].”

JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, SR. (former multi-division world champion):

“Julio is more relaxed and confident in his training. It’s never too late to start over. I hope on Saturday that we will see a new Julio.

“The loss to Fonfara didn’t take him down, it woke him up. Now he must take a new path and win in a dominant fashion.

“I didn’t want him to take the fight with Fonfara because he wasn’t at the same weight and he was coming off a year of inactivity.

“I think that this is the right weight for Julio. He is taking on a challenger who trains well and is young. Julio has the essential qualities to step ahead and forge a new path.”

ROBERT GARCIA (Chavez Jr.’s trainer, ex-130-pound titlist):

“I think everything has come together so much easier than I expected. Julio is training every day, he’s sparring. He’s doing everything he has to do. It’s been easier than I ever expected.

“We start at 7:30 p.m. and we train till 11 p.m. sometimes. He’s training so much. He loves to train. Sometimes he goes in my swimming pool and swims for 15 or 20 minutes.

“Junior has his own style, and I’m not going to change that. I’m just correcting little things; making sure he doesn’t have his head in front of his opponent and letting them hit him like they did his last couple of fights. I want him to use the jab a little more and move side to side.

“I love it out here in Riverside. I own the whole property so my fighters all stay here. We have horses and it’s quiet. It’s just so different than Oxnard where 40 or 50 fighters could walk in at any time.”
