Former world champion Julio César Chávez, the best Mexican fighter in history, promised that he will punish Puerto Rican Héctor Camacho, whom he will face on June 19 in an exhibition fight.
“This old man will give you the fuck of your life, you disrespected me,” said Chávez to the son of one of his most bitter rivals, Héctor “Macho” Camacho, whom the Mexican defeated in 1992 in Las Vegas.
Chávez, about to turn 59 years old, has made several exhibition fights in recent years in order to raise funds to help people without resources and this Saturday he proposed to spread his fight with Camacho’s son, but they were on the verge of get to the blows.
The Caribbean offended the former world champion with high-sounding words, before which the retired boxer promised to retaliate in the ring.
“This is no longer an exhibition, it’s going to be a fucking fight,” said Julio César, who was the world monarch in the super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight divisions and won 107 fights, 85 by knockout, with six losses and two draws.
In 1992, Chávez defeated Héctor Camacho and retained the super lightweight title of the World Boxing Council in a fight that this Saturday the retired fighter considered the most mediatic of his career and that paralyzed all of Mexico.
On the card in which he will face the son of “Macho”, the Mexican will be accompanied by his sons Omar Chávez, who will challenge Ramón “Inocente” Álvarez, brother of champion Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez; and Julio César Chávez Junior who will face Anderson Silva, former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight champion.
Johan Álvarez, nephew of «Canelo», considered the best pound-for-pound boxer of the moment, will make his professional boxing debut at the show. EFE
