Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32KOs) has decided not to train with Robert Garcia at his boxing academy in Oxnard, California.
Chavez Jr is preparing for his March 1st rematch with Bryan Vera. Julio was turned off from the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy after witnessing all of the drama two months ago between Freddie Roach and Alex Ariza, who used to train Chavez as a team. Now Ariza works with Garcia. Chavez wants to avoid being caught in the middle or the ongoing feud between both gyms.
"For now I am preparing with Vladimir Baldenebro. I have not decided if we are going to adjust to a new coach. I will not be a part of the problems and I think there is a tense situation there [at the Oxnard gym], and I do not want [to be around] people who can harm me and will continue for now with Vladimir," said Chavez. -BoxingScene.com
