Martinez: I'll Make Chavez Desperate, Wear Him Down

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Middleweight Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) has an entire strategy worked out for WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32KOs). Their fight happens on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. HBO pay-per-view will televise.

Martinez plans to punish Chavez to the body in the early rounds, drain him of his stamina and then he plans to step up the pace to secure the knockout before the distance. He expects Chavez to go for broke when his stamina begins to drain down.

“I can say what I will do in the ring with him without any worries because I have a clear advantage. He knows what I’m going to do, but he won’t know when. I can say that I'll tire him out in the early rounds. I will wear him down. I’m going to make him get desperate. I will aim for his body and that will be the key. I’m pleased with the work done in the gym, I can’t wait to fight," Martinez said.

This is a fight that I am anticipating very much. Chavez is one of the best body punchers I have observed in a while. Jr. is no joke and I think Martinez is underestimating him. He is thinking Jr. is…

[QUOTE=kiaba360;12452904]It feels like Martinez just came on the scene or something, many people are pretending like they don't know what he's capable of. The size disparity isn't gonna be the deciding factor in who wins, cuz Martinez is used to…
