Martinez Vows: I Will Give Chavez Jr. The Biggest Beating!

By Rick Reeno

The recognized king of the middleweight, Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs), took offense to the recent trash talk of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32KOs). Following his HBO televised TKO of Andy Lee, Chavez vowed to "shut the mouth" of Martinez and promised to knock the Argentinean fighter out.

After months of discussions, a deal was finally reached for Chavez to defend his WBC middleweight crown against Martinez on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. HBO pay-per-view will carry the event.

"I will give Chavez the biggest beating that he ever got, so it's better not to talk too much because he will go too far and damage his integrity," Martinez told BoxingScene.com.

Chavez is not alone in the back and forth war of words. The champion's legendary father, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., is also throwing a few verbal jabs. In a recent BoxingScene article, Chavez Sr. stated that he was worried that Martinez would now "chicken out" and attempt to withdraw from the fight.

"I'm starting to get upset and they will regret [their words], the father and the son, because I would never withdraw from anything," Martinez said.

After watching his stablemate, Andy Lee, get stopped by Chavez in seven rounds - even Martinez admits that Chavez has displayed a significant amount of improvement in his last last couple of fights.

"He's had an evolution with his quality. He's a much better fighter [now]. He's very strong and very big. I am really looking forward to [fighting him] because now it will be more of [an even fight] than it was two fights ago. I am really happy because I think that it's the right time [to do this fight] and [there should be] no excuse," Martinez said.

[QUOTE=mathed;12258646]Please man....dude looked like a toothpick on stick legs. Martinez would have snapped Lee like a twig, no doubt. I like the fact that Chavez stopped him so he will be riding high confidence-wise coming into a Martinez fight if…

[QUOTE=dan_cov;12258692]All this hype and nonsense because he beat Andy fcukin' Lee is ridiculous. I'd like to see how confident you Chavez Jr fans really are, put some points up if this fight actually gets made, i'll be more than happy…

My only concern and a valid one is if Martinez's age shows that night..I agree Lee isnt exactly a top fighter, so of course Chavez was supposed to look good. Chavez is a bigger fighter, but so have the previous…
