Chavez Sr vs Camacho Jr Preview
The 42-year-old Camacho Jr. will take on the 58-year-old Chavez Sr., whose last significant fight was a decade and a half ago in 2005. This exhibition will consist of four two-minute rounds, and features the younger fighter going up against his father’s former foe.
Camacho, of course, is the son of the legendary Hector “Macho” Camacho, whom Chavez Sr. last fought in 1992.
“I felt a little scared towards myself, I know the danger I run,” Chavez said, per The Cleveland American, before getting a tad scary in his potential predictions. “It’s a scene, but my nose, with a bad pulse I may have a stroke, I have to be very careful, but I’m already accepted it, I’m already up to my neck, but now I have to pick up on how much or how little I have left a great Mexican champion,” the elder fighter said.
For his part, Camacho says he could be facing a lose-lose type of scenario with this fight.
“There’s no going back now. I’m in a no-win situation,” Camacho said about facing Chavez. “If I put it on him, then I beat an elder. If he looks good, then I’m not shit. But I’m relaxed now. Thinking about it, he is my father’s friend. He’s a legend, somebody who I looked up to. I’m just going to go off his energy. If he comes in to throw hard punches as if it was a fight, I will match his intensity.”
The two actually had a little face-to-face trash talk session at a pep rally to promote the event in Mexico recently, which only adds to the anticipation of this one.
“It’s fight time come Saturday. He didn’t like the fact that I called him old. And I wasn’t trying to hear his old stories of how great he is. I’m here for my father’s legacy and my legacy. I told him I love and respect his legacy. This is an exhibition, not a fight. So there was no need to push. I’m not trying to go in there and knock you out. I’ll leave that for one of your sons if they got balls to go in with me,” Camacho added.
Camacho’s most recent bout was back in May 2019 when he knocked Victor Abreu out.
Chavez Sr. last fought in September of 2020, when had a four-round exhibition against Jorge Arce in which he looked pretty impressive for a man pushing 60. He’ll have his work cut out for him here, to be sure.
