Whispers have been floating about for a several weeks that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. hasn't treated training camp as seriously as he should have been, unsubstantiated stuff that hasn't been corroborated. But just because a claim or an allegation hasn't been substantiated doesn't mean we must dismiss it. Even if it is without merit, it can still affect other people in the equation, right? We've been hearing, from people NOT within the camp of Chavez Jr. that Junior hasn't been training like you'd want him to train if you were his trainer, who wanted the very best version of the athlete defending his WBC middleweight title against Sergio Martinez on the night of Sept. 15 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
