Beltran: You Saw How Chavez Hurt Martinez in a Round

By Salvador Rodriguez

The co-promoter for middleweight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is waiting for a hearing date from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Chavez tested positive for marijuana after his September 15th decision loss to Sergio Martinez. Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions has already requested a hearing date. He doesn't expect a long suspension for Julio. If he were making the decisions, he wouldn't punish Chavez for the infraction.

"I'm not one to assess penalties, but the levels [of marijuana] that were found were very low and more than a month before the fight [he was tested] and there wasn't anything in his system. If I were the commission I wouldn't even sanction him," Beltran said.

"If Nevada decides to suspend Chavez, we hope to be out of action for four or seven months, no more...a year would be too much. Not long ago a UFC fighter tested positive for marijuana, with high levels, and the commission suspended him for four months. Chavez Jr. has the full support of Zanfer. He is someone with character, a winner, and an example to the sport. He's done a lot for Mexico and has our total support."

Beltran is confident a rematch with Martinez will happen in 2013.

"The rematch with Martinez is a fact. It will happen in the first quarter of the coming year. Julio is ready. All you have to do is watch [what happened to] 'Maravilla' when he fell to the canvas - he hurt his wrist, his knee. A [single] round was enough for Julio to hurt him [like that]," Beltran said.

No wonder Chavez is so deluded, look at all this reinforcement he's getting from his team.

Chavez didn't apply his normal pressure, because he didn't want to be on a highlight reel, like Paul Williams. If he comes at Martinez in the rematch, he's getting KO'd, if Martinez doesn't fight with a broken hand again.
