Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Sergio Martinez Odds

On Saturday, September 15, 2012, one of the year’s biggest boxing showdowns will go down live from the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, as WBC Middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Junior puts his title on the line against former WBC titlist and current The Ring champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez. These are two of the most exciting and dynamic fighters in the world, and their clear and genuine hatred of each other adds another layer of drama to what already promises to be a fight of the year candidate. Martinez has repeatedly questioned Chavez’s heart, accusing Chavez of ducking him and of not behaving like a true champion. For his part, Chavez has promised to retire Martinez from boxing permanently. These two ooze dislike for each other, and unlike a lot of pre-fight trash talk, it is abundantly clear that this is not fabricated to drive hype for their fight. Even their promoters have been trash talking each other, bringing the tension to a whole new level. Martinez has been beaten once, a 2007 knockout loss to Antonio Margarito which Chavez has vowed to recreate, while Chavez is unbeaten with one no contest. Martinez, who was stripped of the title, is out to prove that he is the rightful champion, and resents the notion that Chavez is considered a titlist at all. This is a great matchup between two of the world’s best, and no matter what happens in the ring, entertainment is a guarantee.
