Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was dominated in his last bout against Sergio Martinez, but he by all accounts he isn’t interested in an image restoring rematch. Chavez Jr had this to say about his future plans: “Martinez has placed too many conditions, has said many things, as always he is a bit talkative and lacks humility.

HE wasn’t sharp until the final round of the Martinez fight and he must show that he deserves to be a marquee draw in that stacked weight class.
