Sergio Martinez: I Have Not Seen Chavez Sign Anything

The Emeritus middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez, has not see any document signed by Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - which indicates the Mexican boxer's willingness to face Martinez in the fall. Martinez is the mandatory challenger to Chavez, the WBC's full titleholder at 160-pounds.

Chavez is scheduled to fight Andy Lee on June 16th in El Paso, Texas. Martinez was objecting to the match being finalized because the WBC promised him an immediate shot at Chavez, following the champion's February win over Marco Antonio Rubio.

To satisfy all of the involved parties, the WBC prepared a document for Chavez, Lee and Martinez to sign. The document directs the Chavez-Lee winner to face Martinez in the fall.  

Martinez was the first to sign the document, followed by Lee, and then the document was sent to Chavez. Although the WBC is claiming that Chavez signed the document, Martinez has never seen his signature on anything.

"I already signed. From my hands [the document] went to Andy Lee. From Lee it went to Chavez, and I think from there it went to the Bermuda Triangle - because it disappeared," Martinez said.

"The World Council said Chavez signed. Then I, as any sensible person, asked them to give me a copy [of the document]. Is there a document that exists with the signature of Chavez Jr.? I do not think so. Why? Because I have not seen it. I asked them to send me a copy by e-mail and everyone is quiet and no copy was sent."
