Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Is Leaving Freddie Roach For Beristain Or Garcia

Slowly but surely, Freddie Roach is being abandoned by his cream-of-the-crop customers. First it was Amir Khan who decided that his loss to Danny Garcia was not entirely his fault, and traded in Roach for Andre Ward’s coach Virgil Hunter.

Now, according to Fightnews.com, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is following suit. Looks like he will no longer be trained by Freddie Roach after his loss to Sergio Martinez, and is now looking at working with either Juan Manuel Marquez’s trainer Nacho Beristain, or Doanire’s coach Robert Garcia.

While I am not necessarily sure that these fighters are losing because Freddie Roach is doing something wrong, it is their choice who they hire, and it in a way, its it interesting to see how another training approach could change a fighter. What if Chavez Jr. loses his next fight? Will he be looking for yet another replacement?

While I understand why fighters do this, I am curious whether one loss is really enough to make such a drastic change.

One thing for sure: no matter what happens, Manny Pacquiao will never replace his coach and one of his best friends for any reason.
