The historical Julio César Chávez can boast of successes, records, unforgettable fights and having impacted and captivated the legend Muhammad Ali.

A few years ago, Julio César Chávez uploaded a photo of Ali to his twitter account, where he revealed the shocking anecdote that has moved boxing.

In the photo you can see Muhammad Ali with a shirt and tie, while attending a training session with a young Julio César Chávez.

The Cesar of boxing recounted what Ali told him, words that motivated him and that years later did justice by becoming the best boxer in the history of Mexico, and one of the most prominent internationally.

“He was telling me that I was very good, what a pity that I was not his weight,” said Chavez.

“I answered that it was good, because he was very big and he was very good. He told me that he would always continue like this », revealed the ‘César del boxing’.
