Sergio Martinez Doesn't Expect a Chavez Jr. Showdown

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) doesn't expect to fight WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs) in the fall, despite a signed document where the Mexican pledges his willingness to make a mandatory defense against Martinez. The document was issued by the WBC, but it doesn't legally bind the boxers to a fight.

Chavez returns on June 16th in El Paso, Texas against Martinez's stablemate, Andy Lee.

"Although he pledged to fight, I don't think the fight will take place," Martinez stated.

Martinez is skeptical, because he doesn't believe Chavez's promoter, Top Rank, will sign off on the fight. If Chavez doesn't fight Martinez, then the WBC has promised to strip him of the title and crown Martinez as the new champion. 

"If Chavez Jr. does not agree to fight," says Martinez, then the Argentine star will pursue a possible homecoming title defense with a major event in Argentina.
