Chavez Jr., Martinez Sign "WBC Document" For Fall Bout
By Miguel Rivera
According to WBC President Jose Sulaiman, WBC middleweight world champion Julio César Chávez Jr., and Diamond Belt champion Sergio Martínez, signed an agreement to have their mandatory fight in September, 2012. They have also agreed, and the WBC has ruled favorably, for Chávez to have a voluntary defense against Andy Lee on June 16 in El Paso, Texas.
The document in question is not a contractually binding agreement, but it does ensure that Chavez (45-0-1, 31KOs) will be stripped of the title, and Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) becomes champion, if a fight is not made in September. There is also a clause for a 60-40 split in favor of Chavez.
