We are now just a little more than 48 hours from the middleweight super-fight between Ring Magazine Champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez and WBC Champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. The fight has taken on a very personal feel in recent weeks, with both fighters shooting daggers of bold criticism at each other.
But on Saturday night at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, all the talking will stop. It will just be two men inside a ring fighting it out for middleweight supremacy. The majority of the boxing media is predicting a tremendous action-packed fight between the two, with most favoring Martinez by late stoppage or decision.
Here's why they're wrong. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will shine on Saturday night in Las Vegas, and in so doing, will step out of his legendary father's shadow.
