Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Sergio Martinez both weighed in at 167 pounds with about a week to go before their Sept. 15 middleweight championship fight, according to William Boodhoo, an official with the World Boxing Council.

Chavez’s weight was certified Sept. 7 by Dr. Antonio Salazar, and Martinez’s weight was certified Sept. 7 by Roger Anderson, according to Boodhoo.

That puts both fighters at one pound less than the maximum of what they could be for the sanctioning body’s mandatory 7-day weigh-in, which requires fighters to be within 5 percent of what they must be for their bout (Chavez is the WBC’s titleholder at 160 pounds).

Both also came in within the 10 percent limit at their 30-day weigh-in last month, according to the WBC: Chavez’s weight was reported to the sanctioning body as being 176 pounds, while Martinez was 174 pounds.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]Only Martinez can answer that question. I think he could make 154. Anyway, thats the only weight a Mayweather vs. Martinez fight would make sense. Floyd is a small 154er.[/QUOTE] just because a figther says he can make a weight, doesn't mean he won't be weight drained. of course ...

So chavez weight 167 on saturday, 7days before the fight. I just read an article on yahoo where roach was saying on monday that he was weighing 172. Is that even allowed? To go back up in weight? Either way theres a real lack of discipline if you're struggling to make the checkpoint weights.

[QUOTE=mushahadeen]I said it over a year ago: JCC JR does not need a real training camp to Sergio Martinez. A guy who does not even keep his hands up is easy work. Mark my words. This will be an incredibly easy fight.[/QUOTE] Wanna put a little points wager on it?

[QUOTE=mushahadeen]After I am proven right, I will NOT be bumping anybody's posts because I am too lazy.[/QUOTE] And what if you are proven wrong (which is going to be right) then what are you going to say? Chavez Jr is going to get pummeled and then Bob Arum will throw him to the media wolve...

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]I cannot wait til after the fight to read your post. I'll be definitely waiting for your posts.[/QUOTE] After I am proven right, I will NOT be bumping anybody's posts because I am too lazy.
