Sergio Martinez: I Hope Rubio Wins, Ends The Chavez Lie!

By Miguel Rivera

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, middleweight Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs) vacated his WBC Diamond title. The Argentine star was angry with the sanctioning body's failure to force a mandatory fight with WBC full champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0, 31KOs). The organization ordered the fight two weeks, at their 49th annual convention in Las Vegas. But a few days later WBC President Jose Sulaiman tried to get Martinez to step aside in order to allow Chavez to defend his title against number one ranked Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5, 46KOs) on February 4th in Texas.

Martinez doesn't consider Chavez a real champion, and hopes Rubio beats him in February. Martinez will face Matthew Macklin on March 17th.

"I hope Rubio beats Chavez Jr. to end the lie. And if [Rubio] wins, just tell me where [to fight him] and I'll look forward to it. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is the biggest coward in the world, followed by [Top Rank CEO] Bob Arum," Martinez said.

I can understand that everyone's looking for a payday, and trying to avoid difficult matchups--Martinez included. That's just business, I suppose, whether we, the fans, like it or not. This is why the sanctioning bodies should be responsible for forcing…
