By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has received confirmation that veteran trainer Naazim Richardson will be working the corner of Sergio Martinez on Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas - as Martinez will attempt to capture the WBC middleweight crown from undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Martinez is trained by Pablo Sarmiento.

Richardson is best known as the trainer of Bernard Hopkins and Shane Mosley. He is also the man who prevented Felix Trinidad from improperly wrapping his hands before a high-stakes fight with Hopkins in 2001, and Richardson discovered the illegal inserts that were placed in Antonio Margarito's handwraps prior to his fight with Shane Mosley in 2009.

Martinez's longtime adviser, Sampson Lewkowicz, gave a brief explanation on why they brought in Richardson.

"We didn't want to take any chances. We are taking every precaution before this fight. We don't want another Antonio Margarito [incident] to happen. We are taking every measure to ensure that Sergio Martinez receives a fair fight," Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

Richardson will be present when Chavez wraps his hands tomorrow night and he will assist Sarmiento in the corner, says Lewkowicz.
