Julio Cesar Chavez to take over training of his sons

The legendary Julio Cesar Chavez will take over as trainer for his two sons, Julio Cesar Jr. and Omar.

Mexican boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez has decided to take over the training of both of his sons, Julio Cesar Jr. and Omar, according to The Record.

Chavez feels that the current seven-month suspension for Julio Cesar Jr. is a bit unfair, but also hopes that it gets his son to take boxing more seriously. The elder JCC will take over as trainer because he feels he's the only one who can get the most out of the two boys, and Jr. for sure has stagnated quite a bit in the last couple of years. Omar, 20, hasn't fought anyone of any genuine use yet, so the jury is still decidedly out in his case.

Jr. is looking at a June return to the ring, and there has been a bit of rumor that they're looking at John Duddy, a fellow Top Rank fighter who has a potentially dangerous fight on March 13, not that a loss would rule Duddy out as an opponent for JCC Jr.

His father says that JCC Jr. is "trying to make the best of the situation."

Omar is slated to fight in Grapevine, Texas, the night before Pacquiao-Clottey. Top Rank has a nice little appetizer card set up for that night, with Samuel Peter facing Nagy Aguilera, Hernan Marquez taking on Richie Mepranum, and Anthony Peterson in a stay busy fight, among other scraps.
