Chavez Jr: At 100%, I Would've Stopped Martinez in Six

By Miguel Rivera

Former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) is pretty confident that he could have knocked Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) out last September in Las Vegas. Chavez was dominated for eleven rounds, but then he nearly stopped Martinez in the twelfth after knocking the Argentine star down and having him badly hurt in the process. Chavez lost a twelve round decision and afterwards he tested positive for Marijuana.

He admits his training camp was pure chaos and he wasn't 100% mentally prepared when he got in the ring. Chavez says by the eleventh round he realized Sergio was beatable, but he was too tired to execute the finish.

"If I had gone in there at 100%, I would have knocked 'Maravilla' Martinez out in six rounds," said Chavez.

There are discussions to stage a rematch in the fall. Martinez defense his WBC title against Martin Murray on April 27. Chavez may return in May or June. His return date depends on the outcome of an upcoming hearing with the Nevada State Atheltic Commission, who will issue out an undetermined suspension for the marijuana use. Chavez will meet with them on February 28th.

So apparently Jr went and straightened his Dad by forcing him to rehab... maybe its time to Dad to straighten his son out...

[QUOTE=The Smash;12997344]I had the first round even and Martinez shaded the second, but then Chavez began to turn it up, culminating in a massive 10-6 round in round 12.[/QUOTE] Ahhhh I see.... what makes you think Sergio won the second?

[QUOTE=hougigo;12992344]I'm actually curious which rounds you didn't give to JCC Jr[/QUOTE] I had the first round even and Martinez shaded the second, but then Chavez began to turn it up, culminating in a massive 10-6 round in round 12.
