Sergio Martinez is a true great in the squared circle.
The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is set to overwhelmWBC middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. later this evening at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KOs), the 2010 “Fighter of the Year” who is currently ranked by Ring Magazine as the third preeminent pound-for-pound boxer in the world, last fought on St. Paddy’s Day when he battered Matthew Macklin until the Irishman’s corner halted the mismatch shortly before the 12th round.
Similarly, the 26-year-old Chavez (46-0-1-1, 32 KOs), nicknamed “The Legend Goes On” because he is the son of iconic pugilist Julio Caesar Chavez, last fought in June by making the fourth defense of his crown with an impressive seventh round TKO over Ireland’s top contender Andy Lee at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas.
