You need a little oomph, a little luck, a lot of patience and the fights we want will soon come true. Hell, sometimes you need to bitch a little to get what you want. That’s exactly what we all did. We all talked crap about how Chavez Jr
. was dodging to fight Sergio Martinez
, well at least I was. Eventually the snowflake turned into a snowball that rolled into an avalanche and the rest is history.
Finally today in Los Angeles, undefeated WBC Middleweight Champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and two-division world champion Sergio Martinez hosted a press conference to kick off their coast-to-coast media tour announcing their Mexican Independence Day middleweight championship battle taking place September 15th at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
I’ve been waiting for this fight for a long time and things got a bit heated.
“Chavez Sr. better take a picture of his son now because after the fight he won’t recognize him. I’m going to beat him up!” Martinez told the media.
Chavez Jr. also fired back, “there’s been a lot of lies about what happened with the WBC title. He gave up the title and he’s got a great relationship with the WBC. He’s the one who’s been protected by the WBC. I haven’t been protected by the WBC, I’ve been fighting the best. He wanted to make money. That’s why he’s here…don’t have any doubts that I’m going to be the winner.”
This is a fight you don’t want to miss.
