Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Sergio Martinez participated in a photo shoot in New York today for their September 15 showdown and looking at the above picture got me wondering. Can Chavez beat Martinez?
Before the fight was ever announced, with out hesitation I will tell you that Martinez would kick Chavez’s butt any day. But I have to admit, Chavez Jr has improved a lot. Of course with the help of his hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach. Chavez Jr. looked unstoppable in his most recent knockout victory against Andy Lee.
On the other hand, Martinez, 37-year-old, has fought some great names and has taken significant damage. By looking at the pictures, Chavez looks huge. Chavez Jr. is only 26-years-old, in his prime and being a huge middleweight is a big advantage against the smaller Martinez.
With Jose Sulaiman predicting Chavez Jr to win over Martinez, Sulaiman gave his prediction on ‘Leave It In The Ring’ radio show, not that I think he is right but because he is liable as being corrupted, I think Chavez will have another advantage.
Right now the odds on the Wynn sports book have Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO) favored at -170, and Chavez (46-0-1, 32 KO) at +150 on the book. Those are closer odds than some might have expected, nevertheless it is going to be a great scrap and I am going to stick with my prediction for Martinez to win. Will soon find out if the old saying is true, “the bigger you are the harder you fall.”
