Former boxing champion, Julio Cesar Chavez, recently ignited a social media frenzy after hurling an insult at Televisa commentator, Carlos Aguilar, who was filming a segment with YouTuber Lalo Villar. The incident, captured on video and shared by TUDN, shows Chavez striding behind Aguilar, yelling an insult, and then continuing on his way, a smile playing on his lips.
Gritty Past Comes to Light
Despite Aguilar's invitation to join the shoot, Chavez chose to keep moving. Aguilar then recounts a past anecdote where an irate Chavez damaged his vehicle after questioning the outcome of one of his fights against Pernell Whitaker. Aguilar suggested that the fight had not ended in a draw, as declared, but with Chavez's loss. According to Aguilar, Chavez reacted by hurling a stone at his vehicle, causing material damage.
Complex Dynamics Unveiled
This incident resurfaces amidst a complicated dynamic between Chavez and Aguilar, illustrated by the recent verbal exchange caught on video. For many years, the public witnessed the teamwork between Julio Cesar Chavez and Carlos Aguilar, fondly known as the 'Zar of Boxing.' As part of the Box Azteca coverages, Aguilar became the emblematic voice of boxing matches until his departure from the network in 2019.
A Strained Friendship?
Since then, the sports journalist has shed light on his relationship with the 'Great Mexican Champion,' with whom he had worked for many years, developing a friendship. However, since joining TUDN, the two hadn't had a chance to cross paths. So, when the sporadic meeting between the two boxing analysts occurred, it gave Chavez an opportunity to play a heavy prank and confront Aguilar with harsh words, insulting him behind his back. This moment, caught on video, quickly went viral on social media platforms.
