Chavez was arrested for DUI during training camp

By Karl Freitag

Just two weeks prior to his defense against Marco Antonio Rubio, during what would have the peak of his training camp, WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez was arrested in Los Angeles on charges of drunk driving at the late, late hour of 4:38AM. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website, the Son of the Legend was held for about six hours and must return to court on March 16 at 8:30AM. At the time of his arrest, Chavez was listed as weighing 175lbs and it is known that he had difficulty making weight for his fight with Rubio, although he successfully made the 160lb limit on the first try. In the 30 hours or so between the weigh-in and fight, Chavez bulked up nearly 22 pounds according to HBO.
