Chavez Jr. To Martinez: The WBC Protected You, Not Me - Boxing News
By Miguel Rivera
The WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has responded to Argentine boxer Sergio "Maravilla"
Martinez, who claims the Mexican champion has been protected by the Wolrd Boxing Council. Chavez will defend the
title against Martinez on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"They have said things that are not true. If anyone was protected by the WBC, it was Maravilla, because he is a
friend of [WBC President Jose] Sulaiman and even appeared on a television program [with him]. I've never been
involved with the WBC. Segio did business with them because he wanted money. Nobody wants to fight him,
and I'm the only one who gave him the opportunity," Chavez said.
"On September 15 they will know who I am. I will establish myself as a great champion. I'm going to win and make
him eat his words and I will ask him - "where are you going when you lose to me."
