“Cuando a la persona le vale madre todo … las cosas no funcionan.”

After a resounding defeat to Saul “Canelo” Álvarez on May 6th in Las Vegas, boxer Julio César Chávez Jr. was criticized for what many perceived as a “lack of heart.” Many expected Chávez Jr., who had a weight and reach advantage, to attack the smaller Álvarez. Instead, Chávez Jr. retreated for most of the fight, allowing Álvarez to control the proceedings from round one to round 12. Chávez Jr., the son of Mexican boxing icon Julio César Chávez, chalked it up to a tough weight cut, which he believed sapped him of any power to hurt Álvarez. After the fight, his father said he also believed the weight cut affected Chávez Jr., but remained complimentary of Álvarez’s performance.

Days after the fight, it appears Chávez Sr. is fed up with his son, who has had a long history of indiscipline. In a recent interview with ESPN, Chávez Sr. was asked if he believes Chávez Jr. should retire. Chávez Sr. replied that his son needed to change completely: “El no puede seguir asi. No puede seguir haciendo las cosas de su manera… valiendole madre todo.” He then paused for a few moments, visibly emotional, before explaining how difficult it was for him to watch his son perform without giving the sport or the fans the respect he felt they deserved. “Y ya están grandes, David,” he said to host David Faitelson, with an exasperated look on his face, adding, “Me va pegar un infarto … por andarme preocupando.”

They’ve released their first new album in 17 years.

In the year 2000, At The Drive-In were on top of the world. The band released its third album, “Relationship Of Command,” to critical acclaim. Soon, the El Paso, Texas quintet was being called the “next Nirvana.” A year later, they broke up. Two of the band’s members, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala, went on to form The Mars Volta, which became known for its frenetic, experimental style. The other members of At The Drive-In — Jim Ward, Paul Hinojos and Tony Hajjar — went on to form the band Sparta, which released three albums between 2002 and 2006. For years, it appeared the band’s “indefinite hiatus” was a permanent breakup — Rodriguez-Lopez told The Skinny that in 2001, although At The Drive-In’s popularity was still growing, they had reached their creative peak.

But time heals all some wounds, and the band finally reunited in 2011. They played Coachella the following year and have since gone through more ups and downs. With four of the five original members back together — guitarist Jim Ward quit the band in 2013 — At The Drive-In released “in•ter a•li•a,” its first new album in 17 years. The band performed two tracks from the album — “Hostage Stamps” and “Call Broken Arrow” — on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

What do you think? Does At The Drive-In still have it?
