If undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is able to defeat WBC middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik on Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old Mexican boxer is willing to make a defense against the current king of the division, Sergio Martinez. During a recent interview with BoxingScene.com, Martinez and his team made statements that Chavez Jr. was not willing to take the fight, but Zbik has already agreed if he retains. Martinez will return to the ring on October 1.
"I'm willing to fight anyone. Martinez is a great champion. I want to fight against the best and if I win, then yeah it would be a good fight, and the fight would take place at 160-pounds," Chavez told Edgar Solorzano.
