Chavez vs Camacho, legend vs the revenge minded son of a legend

At this time, there’s no doubt Hector Macho Camacho Jr. has but one priority in his life. On Saturday, June 19, 2021, he would like to honor his father Hector Macho Camacho by defeating Julio Cesar Chavez, one of only two boxers who managed to defeat his father in his prime while he held the World Lightweight Title. No doubt this meeting in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in June will be his golden opportunity to honor both his father and Puerto Rico, the Island of their birth. This Camacho Jr. vs Chavez six-round match gives the son of the Puerto Rican legend that rare opportunity to represent both his father and the Caribbean island, an unincorporated territory of the United States which is approximately 1,000 miles southeast of Miami, Florida. 

Another bonus involves Hector taking this time (90 days) to get back into serious shape. For a boxer facing the likes of Julio Cesar Chavez, it’s imperative. That being said, nothing beats being in top shape, super healthy, lean and mean, and having an opportunity to battle a Champion. Camacho’s attitude on life itself will be resurrected. What a disappointment it would be if Camacho Jr. were unable to give it his best. Over the years, many outstanding Puerto Rican boxers have been in a similar position and are now held in such high regard.

Julio Cesar Chavez, Camacho’s opponent has history working in his favor, the pride of winning. Preparing for another victory has become automatic. Chavez knows how to prepare. Who better to know the ins and outs of breaking an opponent down. His methods are proven. His success rate is currently at 95%. Chavez has been blessed with a body and mind that’s been tested countless times and proven to be durable. With Chavez being closer to the agreed upon weight, initially his work load will be less cumbersome and he can begin immediately to prepare his game plan by sparring boxers with similar styles to Hector Camacho Jr. Chavez is more like the great fighters of the past, a master craftsmen who at this point doesn’t need to worry about a learning curve. it’s more about sharpening his existing tools. At this point, the venerable Julio Cesar Chavez can be compared to the likes of the masters like Georges St-Pierre of MMA fame and Marvelous Marvin Hagler in his heyday. Do you think he’s going to allow this young whippersnapper to tarnish his reputation. Not likely.
