Chavez Sr. outraged by criticism of Alvarez

Famous Mexican boxer Julio Cesar Chavez I am sure that the absolute world champion in the second middle weight of his compatriot Saul Alvarez you have every right to choose your opponent for your next fight.

“Whoever Alvarez faces next will be a good opponent for him. I don’t know if Canelo is avoiding Benavidez. He doesn't run from any fighter. There are just certain stages, and sooner or later he and Benavidez will have to share the ring. This is a fight that everyone wants to watch, but it’s not up to me. The decision is up to Alvarez.

Saul did an incredible job. The truth is that I can’t talk bad about Alvarez because he was very respectful to me. He earned everything honestly. He has the right to fight whoever he wants. In other words, it is up to the boxing organizations to decide whether they want to adjust his plans by announcing official contenders, as they are required to do, but it all depends on Alvarez,” Boxing News 24/7 quotes Chavez as saying.

Let us remember that in his last fight, Alvarez won by unanimous decision against Jermell Charlo. The confrontation took place last September in Las Vegas.
