One of boxing legends, Julio César Chávez recently confessed that he never liked the late star Diego Armando Maradona and even had the opportunity to say it to his face when the Argentine had an affair as a coach in Mexico.
In an interview with the renowned content creator Adrián Marcelo for his YouTube channel, the former boxer said that he did not have the best images of Maradona and when he was appointed coach of Dorados de Sinaloa and they had to coincide, he did not miss the opportunity to let him know.
“When I was with Maradona in Culiacán, I had a bad impression of him, and I told him to his face, ‘I liked you fat, that’s why I didn’t go to your program’, because he invited me to his program and I didn’t want to. go”revealed.
‘El Pelusa’ was the television host of his own program in Argentina and it was called ‘La Noche del 10’. Apparently, the former soccer player tried to convince Chávez to attend, but he refused.
In the conversation with Marcelo, he also confessed that as the conversation with Maradona progressed, the image he had of him changed completely and he ended up asking for forgiveness for rejecting him. “But now that I know you, I apologize.”
One of the last memories that the Mexican ex-boxer has was that dialogue with the World Champion in which he received various compliments and displays of affection. “I didn’t know what to do with myself, he was kissing me and praising me, pure beautiful things, I keep that beautiful memory.”
Maradona took control of Dorados de Sinaloa in 2018 and there he achieved two runner-up finishes in the second division of Mexico. Two years later, in November 2020, the Argentine star died of cardiorespiratory arrest.
