Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has commented on the post fight urine test which came back positive for marijuana (both A and B samples). Junior posted the message on his Twitter account Saturday.
To the public:
Any explanation or justification I try to give for the recent events will likely have little or no convincing, so I want to say to everyone that I fully assume responsibility for my actions, as well as the consequences of them.
I want to apologize to all who are disappointed or hurt by my behavior. Only I know the causes and it’s my responsibility to confront them. In contrast, I can say that I’ll emerge stronger from these events and I will put forth all my effort to vindicate my image in society.
What happened creates an environment conducive to making a stop along the road and thinking about the future. Today is born the new Julio Cesar Chavez beginning a new stage in my career that is reshaped. I’m preparing myself physically and mentally to achieve new goals, among which definitely in the short term is a rematch with Sergio “Maravilla” Martínez.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the solidarity and support that I have received and also recognize all those people who have taken their time to send me messages of any kind.
