Chavez: I'm Satisifed Martinez Has Underestimated Me

By Fernando Schwartz,

WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32KOs) is having no issues with his training and he's looking forward to Saturday's title defense against Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Chavez likes some of the comments coming from Martinez, who promised to beat the Mexican star in "easy" fashion and he also wants to avoid a decision at all costs. Martinez doesn't see the fight ending in any other way than a knockout victory.

"I feel satisfied that Martinez has underestimated me because this way the victory will be a very big surprise. Everything is in my favor. That benefits me. Everything is good for me. On Saturday, on the 15th, he will see that he's wrong," Chavez said.

"The weight is coming along very well. I will come in there in better shape than I was in the fight with Andy Lee. That is the plan. Better than ever. I know that I will beat him. It is necessary to respect him until September 15. It is a complicated fight, but I visualize a victory for me."

Martinez knows what's at stake here. He's coming for blood.

Martinez is too smart to underestimate any opponent..I fear Chavez will get hurt in this fight...
