Sergio Martinez: Chavez is My First Choice For October

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBC Emeritus champion Sergio Martinez is holding Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. as his top priority for a planned October return. Martinez will make an application to the WBC to force the fight. Chavez won the title last Saturday in Los Angeles, with a twelve round majority decision over Sebastian Zbik of Germany. Marco Antonio Rubio, the mandatory challenger, is also planning to ask the WBC to secure a shot at Chavez.

The Mexican champion is possibly going to make a request for a voluntary defense against Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico, and that would give him time to postpone his mandatory until next year.

"If Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. wants to be a true champion, and prove that he's a real Mexican, then he will have to face me in October. I will ask the WBC to make this fight, and if Julio is a true champion then he should fight me. My first choice [for October] is Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., but if not, there are other good opponents in mind," Martinez told Sal Rodriguez.

[QUOTE=strykr619;10656081][B]Margarito was just as green [/B]when they fought so (who later became champ) so comparing that loss to Manny v Torrecampo is a bad comparison. Why didn't Martinez DEMAND a rematch later in his career? JCC Jr will fight Martinez.…

[QUOTE=JDezi4;10657257]Lmfao damn. In past threads there's been a lot of comments saying how Martinez vs Pacquiao isn't the same as Pacquiao vs Marquez, but that was a nice line...[/QUOTE] Yeah, that was/is a good one. Fact of the matter is…
