This Saturday is the long awaited middleweight championship fight of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Sergio Martinez.

A few years ago, the true fight fans would laugh at you if you brought up this fight happening for many viewed Chavez Jr. as dodging the then worldly recognized true middleweight champion of the world, Sergio Martinez.

Personally I thought this fight would never actually come off for there would be many excuses for Chavez not taking the fight , or more so, those around him who are protecting him, but here we are looking to this Saturday at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas on the big Mexican Independence holiday weekend.

If you understand the business and politics of the sport of boxing and arguably the biggest demographic of fans keeping the sport hot and alive, the Mexican and Mexican-American community, then you may see why there might be reason for Martinez, who is Argentinian and who has fought out of Spain, to obtain a knock out victory in order to secure a win against the son of a Mexican legend who many are weighing in as the future possible super star of boxing.


Here is a list of 4 reasons why Sergio Martinez must KO Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Saturday in order to win.
