The Julio Cesar Chavez Jr drama surrounding his September 17 fight against Ronald Hearns in Mexico continues to build, as today, famed conditioning coach Alex Ariza told that he won’t be going to Mexico to work in Chavez’s camp.

Ariza, who is outspoken sometimes to a fault, was reportedly getting his things together to work with Chavez on the fairly short notice. Chavez, like Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan, works with both Ariza and trainer Freddie Roach, and in the past, failed drug tests by Chavez had been blamed on poor conditioning — by the WBC. The WBC then assured the public (who were waiting to hear their ideas, of course) that they’d get Chavez together with a good nutritionist. Ariza entered the picture with Roach the next year.
