Julio Cesar Chavez made a cameo in the series Monarch, which is currently broadcast on the platform of Netflix, along with the Mexican actor Osvaldo Benavides.
The appearance of the great Mexican champion occurred in the sixth chapter of Season 2 of the series. Chavez appears on stage to train Andres Carranza, character who plays Benavides. Carranza is the president of Monarch Group in the thriller and exercises by hitting the sack under the instructions of Chavez.
In the scene there is a fun exchange between Julio Cesar Chavez and Andrés Carranza. In the dialogue, a curious reference appears that crosses from fiction to reality, and where the great champion throws a funny jab at his children. It is given in the form of a scolding from Chavez for the poor execution of the blows he was making Benavides against the sack.
“What happened, Andrew?”, He tells Chavez. “So much that we practice it and you don’t learn. You’re worse than my kids, man! Let’s see, we’re going to do it with balls, with balls: two left and one right, let’s go! “
