Chavez Jr. calls out De La Hoya

Oscar de la Hoya recently wrote on his twitter account: “I was watching Chavez Jr. last night and I’m sorry but he just does not have it. There’s no pop in his punches, but [I] wish him the best.”

WBC #1 middleweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s response: “I’m surprised that De La Hoya could see two fights at the same time, mine and Bradley-Alexander, but I am grateful to have contributed to having broken the record audience on Fox Sports who tuned into my fight”

Junior stated that he recalls that when Oscar was an up-and-coming fighter that neither he nor his father criticized Oscar when an opponent named “Chicho” Valenzuela sent him to the canvas, “Nor did we criticize the knockout loss to Hopkins, who after the fight became a partner of Oscar’s company, let alone when he stayed on his stool when he faced Manny Pacquiao.”

JC Chavez Jr also issued his own challenge to the Golden Boy: “I call on Oscar de la Hoya to pick up the gloves and face me at middleweight in September and to give more motivation to de la Hoya I’ll bet my purse that I send him back into permament retirement from boxing and then I’ll wish him the best in his career as a promoter.”
