Ignatius Beristain He has countless stories alongside great fighters and one is special, that of the only fight he trained Julio Cesar Chavezwho “thanked” Don Nacho with a check for 40 thousand dollars.

Don Nacho helped Chavez a couple of times to lose weight and was with him in his corner only once, in the Plaza de Toros México.

It was March 7, 1998, when Chavez and Miguel Angel Gonzalez were measured in a fight for the vacant super lightweight title of the WBC and that ended in a draw.

Before Chavez will talk to Don Nacho to have him in his corner, the Mexican idol asked permission from Ricardo “Finito” Lopez to lend to his coach.

July he told Richard: “hey, lend me your coach, don’t be slouch, for a fight,'” he recalled Don Nacho in conversation on the channel One More Round. “And the other pende ** told him ‘yes, of course'”.

After Chavez formalized with Don Nacho and the coach agreed to upload it that night.

“Ah chingá, do you want me to pay you more? If you were only with me for 40 minutes,” he said. Julius Caesarand the coach replied: “No, I don’t want you to pay me anything, I went up with you for free.”

For the previous occasions in which Don Nacho had helped Julio, Chavez said that the payment was for all of them.

“You lost weight in Paris, you lost weight in Monterrey and I didn’t even thank you,” Julio told him. “There goes that wool.”

“When he gets angry, he’s cabr **, but it’s cool,” he considered. “We went to greet him, he hugs me and gives me a fucking kiss on the face. What are you kissing me for? they will believe…”, he said beristin. “But the güero is cabr**, the cabr** is very nice.”
