Sergio Martinez: I’m going to let Chavez Jr. suffer slowly on Saturday
(Photo: Sumio Yamada) By Dan Ambrose: Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO’s) says he’s going to string out WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr’s beating as long as he can on Saturday night in order to let him suffer as much as possible before Martinez finally decides to put him out of his misery in front of the sold out crowd of 18,000 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Martinez said as quoted by fightnews.com “It won’t be a quick knockout. I will punish him a lot and after that I will knock him out and he will suffer a lot. I hope someone in your corner stops the fight because I will never stop. I will continue punishing you.”
As you can see, Martinez means business. He not only wants to take Chavez Jr’s World Boxing Council 160 pound title on Saturday night, but he also wants to inflict the most pain and suffering possible so that he can enjoy the experience. I guess it’s kind of like the way a cat toys with a mouse before going for the kill.
Martinez doesn’t want to end Chavez Jr’s suffering too early so that it robs him of the ability to make him suffer as much as possible in front of the huge crowd and nationwide audience on HBO.
I think Freddie Roach, the trainer for Chavez Jr., could spoil Martinez’s fun by pulling the plug on Chavez Jr. if the beating gets too bad. Roach isn’t going to let the 26-year-old Chavez Jr. suffer for long because he’s still got a huge money-making future.
Just because Chavez Jr. can’t beat Martinez doesn’t mean that Chavez Jr. won’t be able to use his 180 lb size to beat one of the other middleweight champions like Daniel Geale or perhaps Gennady Golovkin. I wouldn’t like Chavez Jr’s chances against the hard hitting Golovkin, but I do think he could beat Geale to pick up his IBF strap.
