Sulaiman: Chavez Jr. is Like a Son, He Must Fight Martinez

By Miguel Rivera

World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman said it wasn't easy to order WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs) to fight Diamond champion Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27KOs). Sulaiman, while realizing the danger involved in facing Martinez, believes the time has come for Chavez Jr. to showcase his worth as a champion to the world. At the WBC's convention at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Chavez was ordered to fight Martinez next - unless their respective promoters can reach an alternate agreement.

“Julio César Chavez Jr. is like my godson. I a lot care for him, and also for Sergio who has always received my support and the care of the WBC. Nevertheless, this organization has rules and the Board of the WBC have taken a decision 0 Julio will have to face Sergio and show everybody why he’s the world champion," Sulaiman said.

since both get to fight again apparently early 2012, if I were bob arum I'd try my hardest to make a chavez vs canelo fight. At least make a lot of money before feeding him to a lion.

The day Jose Slime-man is allowed to run your career is the day you might as well hand over your atm and credit cards. Jr doesn't need Sergio Martinez. he should vacate that fake green belt and go for a…
