Sergio Martinez Not Surprised By Cotto-Chavez Jr. News
By Bill Emes
Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs) is not surprised with the news of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. possibly facing Miguel Cotto in July. The WBC issued a recent order, which directs Chavez Jr., should he beat Marco Antonio Rubio on February 4th in Texas, to make an immediate defense against Martinez, should he beat Matthew Macklin on March 17th. If Chavez wins in February, Top Rank is interested in matching him against Cotto in July.
"Chavez Jr. will never fight me. He's afraid," Martinez said.
The WBC issued orders for Chavez-Martinez in the past. The fight never happened. To show his frustration, Martinez recently vacated his WBC Diamond title and refuses to fight for any WBC titl - unless it's the full middleweight belt that is currently owned by Chavez.
"I will not fight for a Diamond title because it's not the real title. I won't fight for any of these titles. I would only fight for the full WBC title," Martinez said.
