Classic Biofile with Julio Cesar Chavez

(Note: This Biofile with legendary champion is from 1993 – my second year as a professional journalist. It was the peak of the Chavez reign, just before the infamous San Antonio showdown on September 10, 1993. I was very lucky to get this Biofile with Chavez who did very few one-on-one interviews with American media. Glady Rosa helped with translation. )
