Chávez: «What about Márquez is delicate;  US authorities can be wrong »

The former world boxing champion, the Mexican Julio César Chávez described as delicate the situation that the soccer player Rafael Márquez is experiencing, who this week was sanctioned by the United States Government due to alleged links with the drug trafficker Raúl Flores Hernández, who is related to the Sinaloa and Jalisco cartels.

The expugile and now analyst pointed out that “when the United States Treasury gets involved (in an issue) it is because it has the upper hand, but they can be wrong.”

«I fully trust Rafael Márquez, I know him personally and he is a friend of mine. I have also been involved with drug trafficking because I have many friends who are drug traffickers, but it is one thing to have friends and another thing to do business with them, “Chávez told the Bein Sports sports network.

Chávez gave his point of view on the subject when he attended the weigh-in ceremony of his son Omar Chávez, who this Saturday will face the American Robert García in Monterrey, Nuevo León, northern Mexico.

“I’m with Rafa Márquez, I wish him the best of luck, I think he has to clarify point by point, because things are delicate,” he said.

A little over a month ago, when referring to the murder of his brother Rafael, Chávez said he knew “people at all social levels,” including drug traffickers.

“César del boxeo” has always been associated with drug traffickers and in his prime as a boxer, in the 1990s, some of them, such as the Arellano Félix, Amado Carrillo Fuentes, the “Lord of the Skies”, and Juan José Esparragoza Moreno, “el Azul,” took photos with him. EFE
