The fact that Martinez almost got KO'd by him is just flat out embarrassing.
I honestly think it was a blow to each guy's reputation. But this is boxing and fans are retarded so each country probably considers their guy pound for pound number one after it.
Many on here were saying that Chavez could win by decision (controversial) or KO. I thought Martinez would win by decision and later changed my prediction to TKO11. Chavez showed determination to be able to put Martinez down, and Sergio showed that he had toughness to survive the round. The 12th round didn't diminish their reputation.
