Chavez Jr to Sergio Martinez: The WBC Has Been Protecting you

Martinez was right! He said that his fight against Chavez would be a war, and it was war. Sergio Martinez won by a unanimous decision over Chavez Jr., at the Thomas and Mack Arena in Las Vegas.

Two judges scored the match 118-109 in favor of Martinez, while the last one was only a little closer at 117-110. Before the most anticipated match, Martinez told reporters that Chavez donnot deserved to be a champion.

"It is very simple. I cannot accept the fact he is world champion. The only reason he is world champion is because he is Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., the son of the legend, and his mouth is so big - even bigger than his own brain - and he's talking too much," said Martinez.

Speaking about rematch against Chavez, Martinez said that it would "a waste of time," for boxing fans.

Chavez won WBC middleweight belt by defeating Sebastian Zbik, whom Martinez forced to surrendered his title in 2010.
