Press Release / July 18, 2012 - 9:51am

MÉXICO CITY (July 17, 2012) – Undefeated World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion and Son of the Legend, JULIO CÉSAR CHÁVEZ, JR. (46-0-1, 32 KOS), of Culiacán, México, and two-division world champion with the matinee idol looks, SERGIO MARTINEZ (49-2-2, 28 KOs), of Quilmes, Buenos Aires, Argentina, may have been promoting their upcoming Méxican Independence Day World Middleweight Championship clash but it sounded more like they were preparing for a head-on collision! Chávez Jr. and Martinez concluded their four-city, two-nation media tour today, in México City, with each combatant verbally spitting in each other’s eye, predicting a decisive victory and emerging as the rightful Middleweight Champion of the World.

"I want to prove that I am the best middleweight in the world and I will beat Sergio Martinez on September 15 to prove it. It will be a great night of boxing, a great night for boxing, and a great night of celebration for México as we will celebrate Independence Day and my great victory. This is a real fight between the two best middleweights in the world and one that history will remember for a long time"

"There is no way Chávez Jr. can beat me. I will knock him out inside seven rounds. I gave his father a baby bottle today so he can take it to his baby after I give Junior a real beating. He won’t be eating solid food with the few teeth remaining after I get through with him."
