Mario Casares: “I am surprised and disappointed with the behavior of Chavez Sr. after the match”


Mario Abel Casares (12-0 5 KOs), said he was disappointed with the behavior of Mexican boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez after his son’s defeat.

We remind you that on September 25 in Tijuana by unanimous decision in 6 rounds Casares defeated Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. (51-5-1 33 KOs).

A technical knockout was ordered after a blow that resulted in a severe cut in Chavez’s eyebrow. The boxer himself claimed that Casares hit his head, but watching the video did not confirm this. Moreover, according to the protocols, Casares had an undeniable advantage.

According to Casares, upon learning of the decision of the judges, Chavez Sr. literally attacked his representative Enrique Covarrubias and the case almost ended in a fight:

“When the fight was over, I saw that Chavez Sr. ran up to Enrique with the intention of hitting him. He was very disappointed and angry. It was a shock for him, because no one really believed in my victory.”

As for the rematch, Casares says he doesn’t see much point in it:

“To be honest, I’m not interested in a second fight with someone I already put in place.”
