Expanded Chavez Jr, Martinez Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale

10 days from their highly anticipated Mexican Independence Day Weekend world championship showdown in Las Vegas, undefeated WBC middleweight champion and Son of the Legend, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32 KOs) and two-division world champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KOs) hosted an international media conference call.

Sergio Martinez: “I believe that I’m #2 in the sport and that’s good enough to know that I will beat him, he cannot beat me… He doesn’t deserve to be world champion. The only reason is because he’s the son of a legend. His mouth is bigger than his brain. He’s been talking too much and that really ignited how this became personal.”

Lou DiBella: “As his promoter (Sergio’s “hands down”) style still makes me nervous.”

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.: “He’s got a big mouth and I’m going to shut him up once and for all on the 15th. He’s a big clown….I don’t like to lose. That’s the bottom line. Every time I go to the ring and give my all. I go to win. Having an undefeated record is nice but givng everything you have is more important.”

Freddie Roach: “Martinez is a smaller guy and it’s harder to get to his body. But we have traps set to break the body down and take his legs away from him. It’s a difficult task but we’re working on it.”
