    Heard that Chavez has inked a deal to fight Martinez in the fall. Lee by early KO, then Texas commission DQ’s Lee on illegal shoelaces, Chavez pulls out of Martinez fight due to something or another, fights 24th ranked contender, “title” reign steamrolls on.

    I guess Chaves really doesn’t won’t any part of Martinez .

    The fact that its in Texas tells me that Lee better be looking for the knock out or he will get robbed for sure. I think this will be a good fight unless it goes to the score cards lol.

    YEa… no wounder is taking place in Texas.. just in case Chanvez is loosing they know the judges got Chavez back.

  6. Jonny-Boy

    I’d like to say this fight can go either way, then again this fight is taking place in Texas where there has been very questionable decisions as of late. Lee may have to work a lot harder than Chavez to get the W.
