Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Says he cant beat both Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez

The last time we saw Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. In the ring was about a year and a half ago when he was getting dominated by one of the sport’s biggest names, Canelo Alvarez. For 12 painful rounds, Chavez was ineffective, walking into serious leather from Alvarez while failing to amount any kind of attack.

It was a far cry from the fighter who rose the ranks several years ago, eventually winning the WBC middleweight title and staying at the championship level for a few years. Even in losing his first pay per view fight, vs. Sergio Martinez six years, ago, Chavez showed tremendous grit in rallying late in the fight and dropping the Argentinian champion in the 12th round.

Against Canelo, we saw no real fire from Chavez. Was it the weight? The two men did meet in a catch weight of 164.5 pounds, as Chavez is now used to fighting at 168 pounds. Or has it been his lack of desire? Either way, Chavez is back in the game and was recently spotted by TMZ, where he addressed his career.

And surprisingly, Chavez is calling for a rematch with Canelo.

“[I want to be] the challenger, number one for Canelo rematch at 168,” stated Chavez. “Of course I want to knock out him in my weight. Why now [is he] fighting at this weight?”

For those who don’t know, Canelo is lined up for a December 15th date at Madison Square Garden vs. WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding.

Chavez also mentioned retired former five-division superstar Floyd Mayweather as an opponent, but that he is the only man he’d move to middleweight for.

“160, only Mayweather,” said Chavez. “It’s money, you know. It’s about business.

“I can beat both,” Chavez said of his ambitions vs. Canelo and Floyd.

There was whispers of Chavez possibly rematching Martinez later this year, but that became scrapped, as it’s been revealed Chavez will be facing off with longtime contender Alfredo “Perro” Angulo on December 1st on the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury undercard in Los Angeles.

Angulo (24-7, 20 KO) is a now well past his best, and at 36 years old he has lost five of his last seven fights. But You can’t deny that a Chavez vs. Angulo matchup will still be wildly entertaining at this point. It may not deserve to be the main event across any platforms, but both have have always battled tough through the wins and losses, and if Chavez is serious with his talk of facing Canelo and Mayweather, he desperately needs to win this fight.

No word on where Chavez has been training these days or whether he will be teaming back up with trainer Nacho Beristain or strength and conditioning coach Angel “Memo” Heredia, who he has worked with in recent time. Either way, Chavez’s return could mean big business for him.
