From the FightBeat Expert Boxing panel
Well folks, another great fight emerges this Saturday night with the showdown between Sergio Martinez and undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr this weekend in Las Vegas.
Naturally, the FightBeat expert panel of boxing gurus has been
drinking ruminating on the outcome with much fervor.
And it’s been quite a week - the HBO showdown between the slick Martinez highlighted his anger at the boxing equivalent of the silver spoon Chavez was born with - meanwhile, Chavez has been talking it up too. Who’s gonna take it?
Read on to see our experts go at it and break down the fight outcome.
Well, it’s 68% to 42% in favour of Martinez amongst the panel, with most predicting a KO. Here is what some of them said about Martinez;
"Martinez beats the crap out of him"
"Martinez Jr might be overrated, but Chavez Jr shouldn’t even rate. Martinez by KO"
"Marvailla will slowly, but surely pick Junior apart in what I think will be his last great performance"
"I think Junior is going to get hit a LOT"
And here is the take from the highly rational Chavez fans;
"Chavez by KO! He is going to KO Martinez and make him look like a drunken bum.”
"Seeing what Baker was capable of doing to Martinez, it won’t surprise me if Chavez jr busts Martinez up"
"Surely it’s not the same Martinez who’s been having tough fights with Euro stiffs?
So there we are, the FightBeat boxing panel are fairly sure that the handsome Martinez will tame the slightly fatter Chavez. What say you?
