Photos: More Chavez-Zbik Press Conference Shots

By Rafael Soto

Los Angeles, CA - Respectful, but confident to going out with the win and motivated to star in a big role on television and a high-profile event for the immediate future of boxing in the middleweight division - undefeated world champion, Sebastian Zbik, and the son of the legend, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - were the faces at the final press conference that Top Rank presents on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In duel of unbeatens, German Sebastian Zbik (30-0, 10 KOs), who made three defense as the interim champion, says he will come to the ring to win and promises a great fight.

"It's time to fight and I hope the fans will have a great fight and I will do my best to win," I think Zbik.

For his part, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (42-0-1, 30 KOs), said he was very excited to get his first opportunity to become a world champion and now he wants to climb into the ring to make history.

"I promise you I will leave on Saturday to give all, give a war and I'll go to win by any means. I'll be the first middleweight champion of Mexico. It's like a dream to win the world title and will go out to win on Saturday, for me, for my family and my beloved Mexico," said Chávez Carrasco, who was accompanied by the living legend of boxing, his father Julio César Chávez, and his younger brother Omar.

The commitment of support

Vanes Martirosyan (29-0-0, 18 KOs) will face Mexico's Saul "Fiera" Roman (34-8-0, 29 KOs) in a matchup of solid punchers for the WBC 154-pounds Silver title. Both fighters claimed to be in their best possible physical condition and promised a great fight.

It was further reported that the Sinaloa fighter, Miguel "Barreterito" Beltran, injured his hand training, so a new opponent was set for the undefeated prospect of Top Rank, Miguel Angel "Mickey" Garcia (25-0-0 , 21 ko's) - Rodolfo "Chocho" Guzman (28-2-0, 20 KOs). A great match of styles, they are expected to exchange many blows.

Both of these guys have shaky records built at home. Chavez has the experience factor, more fights; facing better competition, but not much better. Zbik is the one with the uphill battle and I don't think he can win without…
