Fourteen days prior in Guadalajara, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. stepped in the ring for the last time when he participated in a four round display conflict with Hector Camacho Jr.
Chavez Sr. is broadly viewed as the best Mexican contender ever.
Sitting at ringside for that occasion was four division title holder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Canelo’s appearance at the capacity was to be expected. His more established sibling, Ramon Alvarez, saw activity on the undercard – and Guadalajara is the Mexican star’s old neighborhood.
Following the finish of the Chavez Sr’s display battle, Canelo shared an enthusiastic second in the ring with the regarded Hall of Famer.
There were various outlets that guaranteed Chavez Sr. was “passing the light” to Canelo, who is presently viewed as the top pound-for-pound contender in the game.
Brilliant Boy Promotions CEO, Oscar De La Hoya, had advanced Canelo for quite a long while – yet in 2020 the two gatherings were associated with a fight in court and eventually consented to head out in different directions.
De La Hoya doesn’t trust Chavez Sr. was “passing the light.”
“I realize Julio Cesar Chavez and I realize he didn’t imply that,” said De La Hoya to Fino Boxing.
“I know Chavez, he is my compadre. I don’t trust it. I feel that as far as passing the light, that warrior hasn’t been conceived at this point from Mexico. Those are extremely enormous shoes to fill.
“I know Chavez. Truly, I realize he didn’t say that.”
Canelo, who as of now holds the WBC, WBA, WBO super middleweight titles, is required to battle again in the period of September. He desires to partake in a full division unification conflict against IBF beltholder Caleb Plant.
