Martinez Responds To Chavez: Accept Drug Testing!

By Miguel Rivera

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs) has responded to the recent challenge of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Last week Martinez said Chavez "did not deserve a rematch" because he gave away his title in a "cheap" manner by not properly training and testing positive for marijuana in the post-fight drug test results.

Martinez dominated the match, but he was knocked down and badly hurt in the twelfth round. Chavez (46-1) says Martinez is afraid to do a rematch because now he knows the possibility of getting knocked out is very real.

"Martinez is afraid. He's knows that I'm going to knock him out. That's why he won't give me a rematch," Chavez said.

Martinez has now responded, telling Chavez that he needs to agree to take random drug tests or the rematch will never happen.

"[Chavez] Jr. should not even be talking about a rematch. First, he has to accept that anti-doping tests [will be involved in the rematch] or there is not even the slightest possibility [of a rematch happening]," Martinez stated.

Their promoters are very interested in staging a fall rematch. Martinez will defend against Martin Murry on April 27th in Argentina. Chavez is being targeted to return on a date in May.

Without the pain numbing effects of Cannibis in his system Chavez will get KTFO.

i think by drug testing chavez actually gains from it seeing as he tested positive for marijuana last time it would help him to maybe stay clean and focused this time around. so he really should just accept it if…

Outside of Mayweather, Chavez will be Sergio's biggest payday. In terms of legacy, he should fight one of the other title holders and try to unify the division.

Lol at Chavez calling Sergio "afraid" After he dominated so effortlessly for 11 rounds the only thing he can be afraid of is doing permenant damage to Chavez. Personally Id like to see a return so Martinez can finish the…
