This issue really does have to do with the drug war going on in cd Juarez Mexico. Both Julio Ceasar Chavez senior and Junior are from the state of Sinaloa, of which of course the cartel with the same name has been fighting a vicious drug war across our border with their rivals the Juarez cartel. Both Chavez father and son think (in my opinion) that they are too "good" to be fighting in a city that for many years has supported a cartel rival to the cartel from their home state, where both of them obvioulsy are hailed as heroes (as well as anyone from the state of Sinaloa like the Mexican band Tigres del Norte and Mexican singer "el Chapo de Sinaloa" the musician with the same name as the infamous drug lord). It does not surprise me therefore that the UT system administrators being from the heart of Texas (hence making them more prone to follow Texas governor Rick Perry's example of making intentional baseless/false accusations about the insecurity of our city) would make such a decision given that even Chavez is not in favor of comming here.
