The middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Mexico's Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., is being pushed to defend his title against the mandatory challenger, Argentine's Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez - or in the alternative he must vacate the belt. A few months ago, WBC president Jose Sulaiman gave Chavez permission to make a voluntary defense against Peter Manfredo Jr. with the understanding that Martinez would fight the winner. Sulaiman's position is still the same.

"They continue to ask me about Martinez and Chavez. I answered this months ago and the answer is still the same. If [the fight] is not done, the title is vacant," said Sulaiman.

Chavez Jr., who won the WBC title in June, is unbeaten in 45 fights with 31 KOs and one draw. Martinez has a record of 48-2-2, with 27 KOs, and he holds the WBC's Diamond title at middleweight.

I hope Roach backs up his BS talk about Sergio sucking and that he's only a great athlete. Then fckn fight him!!!!!

He definitely needs to vacate. He's good but not good enough to fight martinez. I'd actually like to see Rubio and Martinez go at it for the belt. they both seem to want to want the title.

Seriously...? wt happen to Rubio! He's been mandatory... anyways now we know why the rush to fight canelo cause if they stripped him he would not be the cashcow he is now! good for boxing Fight or Vacate! fight rubio as preparation for martines otherwise vacate!

jrs got a punchers chance to make it a fight as weve seen sergios been knocked down a few, but sergios experience and speed is probably way too good for chavez biiig flaws. it would be like sergio vs kelly. shouldve been more active julio! shouldve took it more serious julio!
