Sergio Martinez: Chavez Will Receive a Worse Beating

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs) who has already begun light training for his spring title defense against Martin Murray.  The Argentine boxer recently underwent surgery to repair injuries that were thought to have occurred in his September victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1, 32KOs). Martinez said that he has actually had the injuries for a long time and they were worsened in the Chavez fight.

"Everything went great (with the surgery).  It is not a new injury.  I have had the injuries for a long time and it just happened that they got worse in the Chavez fight.  They got to a point where I had to take care of them.  I am already training and everything is going fine," Martinez revealed.

On April 27th Martinez is scheduled to face Martin Murray in his native Argentina but the fight that has drawn the most attention is a rematch with Chavez.  Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has said that he would like the rematch to take place in September.  Martinez said that he doesn't feel the fight warrants a rematch and that Chavez will get hurt even worse if the rematch happens.

"Really Chavez Jr. doesn't deserve a rematch. He gave his title to me easily in the first fight, but if he wants to be fractured and beaten up really badly then we can have another fight," Martinez stated.

It's likely he will get his butt kicked again cause he is so undisciplined but we'll see
