If He Loses Again, Chavez Jr To Retire
It has been nearly two years since Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last stepped inside the ring, and now the former world champion realizes he cannot afford to lose his next fight.
The 32-year old is near a return for June 22nd, and feels this fight must show that he is worthy of another shot at a world title.
“I’m happy because I’m going to fight. Whenever I get in the ring I try to give my best. I have gone more than a year without fighting, I’m really looking forward to returning, to my career, I’ll come back with everything,” Chavez Jr. said.
“I do not intend to lose another fight, I have three losses, if I lose again I would retire, so I tell people to expect the best of me.”
“There is excitement to get back into the ring, I am focused on this commitment, I am now more mature, I know what I want, I know how difficult it is to be a boxer, the sacrifices of this profession, but I am willing to make them with the purpose of having a good return,” Chavez Jr. continued.
“Before thinking about a big fight like the one I had with Sergio Martinez’ or Canelo, I want to do two or three preparation fights. Against Canelo I was affected by inactivity and not being at that weight for a long time; I do not intend to risk my career, it is the plan that we have to bring back my career in the right manner.”
