Sergio Martinez Workout is Canceled Due To Threats

VENTURA, CALIF.  -- Threats and an incident of vandalism over the weekend at the Oxnard-based training camp of two-division world champion SERGIO MARTÍNEZ (49-2-2, 28 KOs), of Argentina, has forced the cancellation of Martinez's Media Day Workout, scheduled for Tuesday, August 28 in Ventura, Calif.  Martínez is deep in training for his upcoming challenge of undefeated World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion and Son of the Legend, JULIO CÉSAR CHÁVEZ, JR.  (46-0-1, 32 KOs), of México.

"This past weekend Sergio received threats from an unknown source and the car in front of his home was vandalized," said Lou DiBella, Martínez's promoter.  "Unfortunately,  until we have a security team in place, we are going to have to suspend any and all public and media appearances for Sergio, including the upcoming media day scheduled for tomorrow in Oxnard. We apologize for the inconvenience to the media and fans that have planned on attending tomorrow’s event.”
