Golovkin Prefers Chavez To Win, Gives Martinez The Edge

By Keith Idec

Gennady Golovkin would prefer it if Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. upsets Sergio Martinez.

Golovkin already has had his way with a less-developed Chavez in sparring sessions at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. And challenging Chavez (46-0-1, 32 KOs), particularly after a victory over the consensus middleweight champion, would earn Kazakhstan’s Golovkin (24-0, 21 KOs) more money than a fight against Argentina’s Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KOs).

The hard-hitting Golovkin wouldn’t be surprised if either fighter leaves UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center with the WBC middleweight title. The WBA 160-pound title-holder thinks, though, that the favored Martinez will win eke out a win tonight in Las Vegas (9 p.m. EDT; HBO Pay-Per-View).

“I think it’s a 50-50 fight,” Golovkin said. “Sergio is a better boxer, but Chavez has become stronger and bigger. I give a slight edge to Martinez, but I’m still looking for an evenly matched fight.”

Martinez put on a clinic against JCC like I thought he would, but defensively he looked like crap, I felt he got hit way too much by an extremely slow fighter. Idk what he was thinking fighting on the inside either, very easy to hit, fortunately Chavez was so bad he was unable to capitalize on i...

[QUOTE=vacon04]So he just wants Jr to win to get more money ... how about fighting the best?[/QUOTE] If Chavez wins then he is the best and brings the biggest purse.

[QUOTE=ThePunchingBag]You have no clue what sparring is for do you? A lot of fighters only give 30-40% in sparring and don't really take it that seriously. The goal in sparring is to practice tactics and perfect technique. It's not to beat the living shit out of your sparring partner. This is ...
