Sulaiman Instigates Chavez/Martinez
By Rich Mancuso
Jose Sulaiman, the WBC President opened his mouth again and said that their middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is not afraid of Sergio Martinez. Now, why would Sulaiman be so defensive of the WBC middleweight champion who is mandated to defend against Martinez at some point this year?
Sulaiman is very conscious of the media, in particular Mexico City outlets that constantly monitor Chavez Jr. They believe that Sulaiman is protecting Chavez Jr, that all stems from a continued business and friendship relationship with the legendary champion Julio Caesar Chavez, father of the champion.
“With all respect to Mexican boxing fans, I inform you that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has never said that he won’t face Martinez,”said Sulaiman in a statement. “I know Chavez. I know he has the same brave heart as his father.” Chavez defends his title against Marco Antonio Rubio, February 4th on HBO…
Arum is incensed that he has no tickets for the Super Bowl in Indianapolis a week from Sunday. Apparently, Arum, a fan of the New York Giants, who has attended every Super Bowl game, with the exception of two, got no tickets from a lottery system….
Nonito Donaire, “The Filipino Flash” reportedly is in line for a bout with the winner of Juan Manuel Lopez and Orlando Salido and will be at ringside at the Roberto Clemente Stadium in San Juan Puerto Rico for the fight on March 10th… With all due respect, why is former heavyweight champion John Ruiz discussing a comeback after a long awaited retirement that was official last year?
