By Timothy James,

In a boxing match that seems to have no base to it Alex Ariza has decided to make sure there is a solid ground for his fighter Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to fight on.
Earlier this month Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (43-0-1, 30 KOs) didn’t know if he will be defending his belt against Ronald Hearns (26-2, with 20 KOs). This camp had “mess” written all over it from the very beginning.

Billy Keane,  the Manager of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was considerably left out of the loop on the plans for this bout, but has scrambled to get Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. sparring partners. Billy is now involved in finalizing a camp that everyone feels will help produce the needed victory come September 17th when Julio Cesar Chavez Jr will square off against Ronald Hearns in Culiacan, Mexico.

Freddie Roach had already vacated the post of working with Julio, because he couldn’t get a straight answer if the fight was on or off.

Freddie got wind the fight was off and booked his schedule. Freddie Roach, a trainer in high demand could not wait any longer and with his bout coming up in November when Manny Pacquiao will face Juan Manuel Marquez, Freddie needed to get his affairs in order.

Alex Ariza is also in high demand. The last four years worth of work for Alex as the 2nd man in the corner has painted a portrait of winners even Vincent Van Gogh would be impressed with. Alex Ariza booked himself with clients until he boards the plane to Baguio where he, too, will help train the pound for pound king, Manny Pacquiao.

Billy Keane needed help. Julio Chavez JR needed help. So Billy took a drive into Tijuana, Mexico on Tuesday, August 23rd, in search of his fighter.

Billy Keane found Julio Cesar Chavez JR staying at a very nice hotel about 30 minutes south of the United States border and would follow Julio to his workout later that day. Julio trained at a nice club called “Resorts World.” The gym adequate enough with it’s equipment, but lacked two things. It lacked atmosphere and it lacked Alex Ariza.

Billy Keane felt he needed these two ingredients to get his fighter the victory. A victory if reached would set up a fight in November against Peter Manfredo, and even more important for the sport of boxing, if Julio wins his fight this september and his fight in November against Manfredo, this could lead to a mega bout against Saul “Canelo” Alverez in early 2012.

Billy Keane talked to his fighter and learned his fighter felt he needed Alex Ariza in the corner. Julio wanted Alex to make sure he was ready against the straight punching Ronald Hearns.

Alex Ariza got the word last night that he was needed for this battle and after a good nights sleep realized that Mexico is where he is needed the most right now.

Alex is waiting for his ticket to board the plane.

It is being reported that Julio is packing up camp and will join other Mexican warriors in a small town called “Los Mochis”, a city in Mexico that is considered the boxing training ground of champions.

The atmosphere in this little town will get into the pit of the stomach of the undefeated middleweight champ and with Ariza showing up to prepare Chavez Jr for battle, Billy Keane can rest a bit easier. He feels this will maximize his chances for a great fight and a great victory for his fighter come September 17th, 2011.

I am told will also be boarding the plane to Los Mochis, if this is the case, be prepared for some great behind the scenes and training video of one of the best up and coming stars in the sport of boxing today.
