They’re mad at Chavez.”DAZN’s broadcast team reported that Chavez’s trainer, Freddie Roach, claimed his charge had suffered a broken nose and had trouble breathing, which prompted him to quit, but Chavez himself seemed to be complaining about a possibly fractured hand.After the bout, Mannix tweeted:Just talked to Chavez Jr. Says he broke his nose.
