Sergio Martinez Rejects The Idea of Chavez Jr. Rematch

By Miguel Rivera

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez has no interest in a rematch with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., acccording to the champion's manager Sampson Lewkowicz.

Last September in Las Vegas, Martinez dominated Chavez through eleven rounds, but saw himself hurt and put down in the twelfth. He won a one-sided decision to capture Chavez's title. After that match, Chavez tested positive for marijuana and saw himself suspended for several months.

Chavez returned last Saturday in California and won a controversial ten round decison over Bryan Vera. Chavez had planned to return as a super middleweight but he was unable to make the weight and the parties were forced to increase the limit to 173-pounds.

After last year's defeat, there had been serious discussion of a potential rematch between Chavez and Martinez. The Argentine boxer doubts Chavez will ever make the middleweight limit of 160-pounds and he doesn't feel the Mexican star is deserving of the opportunity.

"Martinez called me and said Chavez Jr. does not deserve a rematch. We know that he will not make the weight. But anyway, regardless of the weight, he does not deserve a rematch because he has no respect for the sport. Bryan Vera deserves Martinez more than Chavez. This does not mean that he is the most appropriate opponent, but he deserves it more. For Martinez, Vera is the official winner of that fight," Lewkowicz told Carlos Narvaez.

He can't even make a weight division and without his Dietetics HE CAN'T MAKE 160!

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]I am pretty sure no elite fighters would not have played those silly weight games with Junior.[/QUOTE] LOL!!! It doesn't get any more elite than Juan Manual Marquez. And he was happy to play weight games with Floyd for 600k. Everybody has a price.

[QUOTE=The Weebler I]I think we were watching different fights if you gave 8 rounds to Vera. I get that Vera isn't top drawer but Chavez showed some more than decent movement and evasive skills in there. Let's not forget he's coming back after a year out and he clearly didn't take the bout seriou...

Can't blame Martinez here. His career has been based on earning it the hard way, not having a thing handed to him. Chavez just doesn't seem to care at times. I would prefer Vera get the chance, and I actually think that's a great comeback fight for Sexy Sergio.
