I like Julio Cesar Chavez Jr because his fundamentals are solid and his jab is very good. However, he hasn't fought anyone significant. So his 42-0-1-1 is inflated for the most part.
Question is, is it a good strategy to keep feeding him 2nd-tier opponents he can easily chew on until he develops into an elite boxer?
Or should he go all the way and start fighting contenders? He is being trained by one of the best (Freddie Roach) which means he's in good hands. That's aside from the fact that he's the son of one of the greatest hispanic boxers of all time.
I say he should start to fight tougher opponents because his fundamentals are good anyway and he's not getting any younger (though he's still pretty young)
