Tonight in Las Vegas the Argentine, Sergio Maravilla Martinez with 72.120 kg will face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr with 71.670 kg.
Yesterday before weighing, the Argentine threatened the Mexican: “Tomorrow I expect a beating.”
Maravilla Martinez, who heads the betting in his favor, before a large audience, said humbly, “Talented, me? No. I’m a freak, I read, analyze movements and then roll in the gym one, two or three thousand times, to naturalize. I can say what tic or how many moles are my rivals. I, with boxing, I’m more obsessive than Loco Bielsa in football.”
For the ‘big fight’, all records for ticket sales were broken at the stadium Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, grossing more than U.S. $ 3 million, exceeding 19,151 for Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis, for the world heavyweight title in 1999.
