Re: Whitaker Apologists Respond...
I think Whitaker deserved the win vs Chavez but It was clear to me, that Chavez was not at his best. I never understood why that fight was at Welter. I always wondered why that fight was never made earlier. Not saying Chavez would have won, but I think it would have been a much better fight. At that time, Welter/DEBUT for Chavez, with the amount of fights he had, his age, lack of dedication/alcohol and drugs, wars in the ring and fighting one of the best defensive fighters of all time...that was too much for Chavez. That fight should have been made at lightweight or even Jr Welter. Not Welter.
