Roach: Chavez Will Kick Sergio Martinez's Ass Right Now!
By Chris LaBate
Trainer Freddie Roach doesn't think much of WBC Diamond champion Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs). The four-time trainer of the year is not impressed with Martinez as a boxer and believes Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs), the middleweight champion, would beat Martinez right now. Roach feels Chavez improved a lot as a fighter and liked what he saw on Saturday night when Julio stopped Peter Manfredo Jr. in five rounds. Roach hopes Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum will sign the Martinez fight right now and doesn't see a reason for holding it off.
"Let's do it now. I'm ready right now. He can kick his ass right, in my opinion. I don't think he's a great fighter. He's a great athlete, I'll give him that. But he's not a great fighter...anyone who gets knocked out by Antonio Margarito. I don't see the greatness. I cant take away his athleticism. He's a great athlete, yes, but he's not a great boxer," Roach said.
when Roach said this he must've been @ a bar w/JCC...get real...he'd struggle terribly w/any 1 in the top 5 @ 160...Comment by Mr. Philadel on 11-22-2011

At this point I am really sick of both Arum and Roach. I am not reading anymore Arum or Roach articles until they have announced fight(s) against Floyd and/or Sergio.Comment by Zocalo on 11-22-2011
