Chavez: Martinez Should Stop Crying, Focus on Training

By Miguel Rivera

WBC middleweight champion Julio César Chávez (46-0-1, 32 KOs) is very eager to get in the ring on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, where the rising star will defend his championship against mandatory challenger Sergio 'Maravilla' Martínez (49-2-2, 28 KOs).

Last week, Martinez and his team members revealed that the Argentine boxer was receiving threats, and a car was vandalized outside of the boxer's rented home in Oxnard, California. Martinez is now being protected by 24-hour armed security guards.

Chavez Jr. and members of his team are casting doubts on the story.

"He should devote his time to training and not to crying," Chavez said.

"I don't know if he has any personal problems or if he's gotten himself into trouble. I do not know who it was, but he should explain what happened. I do not know if it's true or his own personal invention because he loves making up stories and making himself out to be a martyr. Throughout his career he has done this. [If it's true], then he should explain what happened."

"Nothing that he says has bothered me. I have only been motivated to train harder. We will be prepared to knock him out and we will be prepared to win by decision."
