I would not be too concern with jr weight being too low as he Stil a young fighter ,you don’t see many young fighter gassing out,bit you will gas out of you donts know how to relax and get over excited while fighting, the benifit is his chevez speed will now be as fast or faster than Sergio .just as Sergio came down to Paul Williams 2 catchweight fight I did say this fight will be diffrent as Sergio lower weight would make him faster, and he was faster. Same here. And if chevez can get Martinez trading early,he wins as it’s means Martinez is over excited and can gas out by 7+ round,Martinez said he will work box) the body and chevez said he will make Martinez exchange,in the by the 3 round we could see who plans is working.

Kid…..I think for the most part your right… unless the Chavez camp has discovered an outside game and a workable jab.

The oxygen chamber helps the healing precess and causes the body to produce more red blood cells which give the body the ability to “carry” a more oxygen at any one time. You are correct that the body does not store oxygen it uses it straight away, but if your body can carry more oxygen it will be beneficial, this is why high altitude traing and hyperbaric chambers are used in many endurance sports like cycling ( I know… not a good example of a clean sport) .

Martinez will destroy Chavez Jr

If I were his trainer I would watch carefully the handwrapping of jr. the only way Jr. can win is if Martinez lets himself get cornered.Plain and simple.

Wow Geoff, can you pick the winning lottery numbers too? What a foolish waste of everyone’s time.

This is jr toughest fight of his life not the other way around.

Martinez is investing a lot into belligerent posturing and barking at Jr., which only means that he’ll fall Harder if he’s the one to lose. it’s a calculated risk but a good way to promote the fight. after all, this is Martinez’s retirement $urge. it truly is now or never for him.

Posted September 15, 2012 2:36 pm 


WTF?

Ernie, Chavez Sr was in my humble opinion a Glove loader and his fight with Meldrick Taylor and that unexplicable Damage seen to Taylors face was a mirror image of the same unexplicable damage done to Cotto by MargaCheato in their First fight… and as we found out, MargaCheatos secret was loaded Wraps… both cheating Glove Loaders…

I agree with “jab says”. The fight will not go to decision. Chavez will be KO’d or TKO’d.

Posted September 15, 2012 12:57 pm 


WTF?

Martinez didn’t ask for Random Blood testing because he knew Chicken Jr. would not go along with it and use it as an excuse to avoid having to fight Martinez.. eg.. Mayweather Paquiao and that fight not happening…

Posted September 15, 2012 12:55 pm 


Its Me, Ernie

I was at the Chavez/Taylor bout. I was within feet from Meldrick minutes after it ended, one more shot could have killed him, he was that bad. The controversial stoppage may have well saved his life.

TARK

Ciani writes, “Chavez is a big strong middleweight who frequently enters the ring well above the official 160 pound middleweight limit on fight night.” What are you talking bout? How about WELL above the LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT limit? The SOC jumps up 3 weight divisions to cruiserweight between the weighin and the fight.

This fight is an afront to true boxing fans. I can’t wait for Martinez – Golovkin, a matchup of two great boxers.

Exactly like George Foreman – Boone Kirkman with exactly same result. Chavez is a stiff par Jose Sulaiman who couldn’t carry Martinez’s Jock. This fight i

No way is this fight going to a 12 round decision. Martinez can’t take that chance and Chavez wants to prove he is the true champion. Chavez is a slugger and not a boxer. He’s also a slow starter that may come out faster than normal in an attempt to match Martinez’s speed, but that will be a mistake. Keep in mind that Chavez has to take punishment in walking his opponent down to do the damage he needs to in order to win the fight. So I see Martinez setting the pace from the onset and the tone of the fight with hard shots. To confuse, frustrate, and hurt Chavez who’s style is tailor made for him. Make no mistake, this is Martinez’s fight all the way. Chavez is either going to get knocked out, TKO’d, or quit before a 12 round decision is made!

I would love Julio Ceasar Jnr to be winning the fight by a mile only to get stopped controversially with 2 seconds remaining on the clock. Payback for 1990!

Posted September 15, 2012 10:55 am 


WTF?

Why does that surprise you? Chicken Jr. has gotten caught cheating and he’s a spoiled brat.. who was given a belt that Martinez rightfully owned.

Posted September 15, 2012 10:36 am 


obbieman

The only chance for Chavez is if he can hurt Martinez, but Martinez is too slick to be caught flush unawares, so I think Martinez should win. Chavez had a good run considering his abilities. He should make a lot of money fighting Alvarez, but I think he’ll lose that one too.

The “red flag” of Julio Jr.’s weight fluctuation says it all. Chavez should stop pretending he’s a middleweight and move up to his natural potential as a light heavyweight. It would be better for his own health and for the sport.

1000 quid on Martinez to win. 8/15

The risk-reward equation favors Junior. If he loses, he still has some mega paydays down the road and he still can move up in weight. If Martinez loses, he is done for all practical purposes. That said, size and youth vs. smarts and athleticism. Both are experienced. Both are slow starters. Both are deadly closers. I see a cat and mouse game early and then Junior trying to close the gap in order to do some damaging body work. However, Sergio knows this and will be smart enough to keep the appropriate separation and play matador to Junior’s bull. Eventually, his power laden potshots will slow Chavez down and test his heretofore granite chin (and mettle). Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will fade down the late stretch and lose—I think by stoppage. One intangible, I like the Argentinean’s corner better than Junior’s. In my view, Roach has slipped considerably of late (despite the continual awards being given him). If Junior gets into trouble, I don’t see Freddie responding fast enough thus causing Chavez Sr. to go bonkers and possibly even become a part of the discombobulation.

BTW, why do journalists and media in general always feel the need to point out that Chavez Jr. is the “son of a legend?” Mr. Ciani, I ask you the same question. If you guys won’t let him out from under the shadow of his dad’s legacy, how’s he ever going to define himself as a boxer? Jr. is Jr. Sr. is Sr. Just because dad was a super champ doesn’t mean that we should expect Jr. to be the same or that he will be. Look at the Mayweather family. Floyd is the youngest yet he is the best boxer in that family by a wide margin. And neither his dad nor his uncle Roger are “legends.” Give it a rest boys and girls. Chavez Jr. will make his own name. Or not.

BigMikeTampa

That is a good way to put it, I agree. I think Jr may have a few brief moments unlike Lacy but overall it will likely be along those lines.

I watched the weigh-in. Chavez looked like a bean pole. I find it extremely hard to believe that he can repeatedly weigh-in as light as he does, then rehydrate to 20 pounds heavier–or more–by fight night, without using something to help him lose the weight. I have a friend whose son is an MMA fighter. He tried fighting at a much lighter weight than what he should have and it left him drained during the fights. He moved up 10 lbs in weight, now fighting as a lightweight, and hasn’t had the problem anymore. He said the making weight as a bantamweight (remember MMA weight division limits are different than those in boxing) was just to hard for him to do and fight effectively at the same time. Chavez Jr. is no superman. If you watched the weigh-in last night the guy looked downright skinny. Hollow cheeks, lanky body. He was drinking non-stop as soon as the weigh-in was over. Then the guy is going to fight at 180 lbs the very next night? Not normal at all. Regardless, I think Martinez is somewhat apprehensive about fighting the guy. He’s been barking at Chavez non-stop. I’m thinking he’s doing his best to intimidate him because he has some small doubts about himself. We’ll see tonight.

BigMikeTampa

I agree with most of the authors prediction only I dont think he will put Jr on the canvas. Late stoppage? Maybe. I think a points win is more likely but I do think Martinez will outclass him. I have slowly become more appreciative of Jr and the Lee fight was good part of that, kinda fishy if JCCjr really didnt take a pee test though.

THis dose not look good! I think Chavez JR should leave this weight and move up and beat up by everyone there!

sedentaristazul

In the ring, Martinez, almost surely, Chavez only has a puncher s chance, and not a very strong one he does not hit hard enough…
In the scorecards lies( :cry: ) the best tool for Chavez, Martinez will have to leave no doubts

Posted September 15, 2012 8:10 am

I agree with the first two thirds this article, but the last third is when the body shots and the constant pressure will finally pay off for Chavez. This fight will end with Martinez up on the cards but tko’d in either round 11 or 12.

Posted September 15, 2012 7:58 am

…. by that I mean Chavez strikes me as another carefully-match-up fighter, built-up by American TV …. and then when he faces a genuine world class boxer …… well you get the drift! Chavez is going to get “Lacyfied”

This ability Chavez has to rejuvenate is a skill in itself, he looks like crap now but I bet come fight time he is back to being the Hulk.

Ha ha, love the final paragraph. Bet that was exactly how it played out in your dream Ciani. I’ve a feeling, for once, you might be on the money with this prediction though. I too envisage a frustrated, tired, and bloodied Chavez being there for the taking in the last couple of rounds but I’m gonna say that Martinez also expends so much energy, coupled with Chavez’s ability to take a shot, that it goes to the cards after an eventful final stanza and Martinez gets a clear UD scored as an SD (to Chavez?). Looking forward to this.
