WBO Prez Doesn't Expect Chavez Jr. vs Martinez Battle

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The President of the World Boxing Organization, Puerto Rico's Francisco Valcarcel, doesn't expect a fight to come about between middleweight king Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) and WBC 160-pound champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs). The WBC is trying to force the fight to come together for September 15th in Las Vegas.

Chavez defends the title against Andy Lee on June 16th in Texas, and the winner has been ordered by the WBC to fight Martinez next. If Chavez wins, Paco doesn't believe he will fight Martinez.

"Martinez-Chavez is a battle that is unlikely to materialize. [Chavez] and his handlers and his family are not interested in this fight. I don't think they will take this risk, because of the risk involved. Chavez Jr. gets a lot of money for his fights, especially with the television [networks], [while] Martinez [doesn't rank as high in that department]," Paco said.

i dont think Chavez is getting past lee which is a shame cause Martinez is a warrior and deserves a big pay check and there is no way chavez would move up to super middleweight he would die there is…

[QUOTE=Nicolino;12031542]This is my prediction: Chavez won´t make weight against Lee and will vacate. He will be huge for Lee and will get the decision but loose his title on scales. That's the perfect escape plan. This way he won't fighting…
