May 6th will be remembered as a black day for Mexican boxing. The fight between Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Julio César Chávez Jr, one of the most anticipated of the last few years, will be remembered for its lack of brilliance on the ring.

Four days after the fist fight between the Mexicans, “Canelo's" victory is still hitting the career of the so-called “Son of the Legend”. Now, the one who knocked him out was Mauricio Sulaimán Saldívar, president of the World Boxing Council (CMB), who said, during the traditional “Coffee Tuesday”, that the cycle of Chávez Carrasco had reached its end.

He was hard on the boxer from Sinaloa, Mexico, and even invited him to get off the ring. “Chavez is done boxing. It would be better for him to find something else to do because he lacks many things needed to be a boxer”, Sulaimán said.

According to the head of the CMB, the expectations raised were everybody's fault, his organization, the fans and even the media. “We are all guilty, we had high expectations; it was so disappointing and embarrassing that it was such a lousy fight after all the buzz around it.” he added.

It's difficult to judge someone who gets in the ring, but he did it for loads of money and now he's gonna have to answer to the public, his family and boxing itself”, he added.
