Andy Lee: I Have The Punch To Knock Chavez Jr. Out

By Rafael Soto

EL PASO, Texas. - Julio Cesar Chavez, the WBC middleweight champion, has no trouble making the division limit of 160-pounds. He defends his title on Saturday night against Irishman Andy Lee. Chavez (45-0-1, 31 KOs) vs. Lee (28-1, 20 KOs) will take place at the Sun Bownl and HBO will televise.

Lee, trained by the legendary Emanuel Steward, is not impressed with Chavez's unbeaten record and believes he will knock him out. Chavez is trained by another veteran trainer, Freddie Roach.

"Julio has not fought anybody. He is spoiled and I will prove that in the ring when I give him a big surprise. I have the punch to knock him out," Lee said.

You know I've heard 45 men make similar pronouncements before they fought Chavez. Guess what happened?

It would be nice to see Lee win. I'm not sure he can knock Chavez out, so I'm going with another controversial top rank decision for the paper champ Jr.
