“I don’t want to imitate him. I learned to box watching him, but I don’t want to imitate him, I’m not interested in imitating him or being, or anything. I think for myself and I don’t want to imitate him. I see you, I see him and I’ve seen many boxers And I try to get a style out of all the boxers”, responded Chávez Jr. in a broadcast with Érik Morales, compiled by the Izquierdazo.
However, after flatly denying it, the “Junior” backed down by saying that perhaps since he was much younger if he had the intentions of fighting like his father and trying to imitate him.
“Maybe at first I wanted to fight like my dad, but there are many styles that suit me better. For example, your style, the style of these boxers who work more from a distance is better for me, well. And I’m going to work a lot from a distance,” he explained.
