DiBella: Martinez Has Significant Upside in Chavez Bout

By Rick Reeno

Lou DiBella, promoter for Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28Kos), does not believe his boxer was financially shorted in the upcoming fight with WBC middleweight king Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32KOs) - taking place on Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

On Monday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission revealed the submitted purse figures for both boxers. Chavez is receiving $3 million dollars, with Martinez securing $1.4 million.

Besides his listed guarantee, DiBella makes it clear that Martinez also has a "significant upside" in the revenue generated from the HBO pay-per-view.

DiBella acknowledges that Chavez will bring in the bulk of the paying audience at the Thomas & Mack - which is now sold out with 19,186 paid.

"To be honest, it's a Mexican holiday and Chavez is bringing more of the people in. It should not be a 50-50 deal. A 50-50 deal is not appropriate. [Martinez] has significant upside off of the number he's getting. He has a significant upside off of the number that you guys heard," DiBella said.

[QUOTE=mushahadeen;12503893]Chavez Jr. calls the shots.[/QUOTE] ...not after this fight. People like you move on to the next great hype after their fighter loses. The end begins for Chavez this Saturday.

[QUOTE=mushahadeen;12504455]They can take a number. [B]Andre Ward is next.[/QUOTE][/B] You can't be serious. If Chavez , somehow, miraculously wins, Arum will keep him as far away from Ward as he possibly can. And will proceed to milk Chavez for all…
