Julio Cesar Chavez Jr has somehow managed to pile on massive bulk and muscle mass in a relatively short space of time since his last fight in the ring.
His last fight coming of course to Canelo Alvarez back in May of last year in Las Vegas which ultimately didn’t live up to expectations in a bout that Canelo won comfortably by unanimous decision.
After the fight, it was reported that Chavez had an item of personal belongings stolen from him by a woman in a Las Vegas hotel but other than that – he has been relatively quiet until now.
It would appear that he has been training away all this time in the anticipation of another fight but at what weight, who knows judging by the following video that has leaked on the Fight Hype YouTube channel (hat tip) and elsewhere on social media:
Speaking on social media he did reveal after his plans to go to light-heavyweight or super-middleweight:
“Next fight 175 o 168 less wear. better performance.”
Despite having one of the best trainers in the world over the years (Freddie Roach) and a legendary fighter in his father for advise (Chavez Sr) for some reason Chavez Jr has always struggled with making the weight over the years.
