Martinez: 159 pounds
Chavez Jr. : 158 pounds
Prediction: Chavez Jr. did not look good on the scales. The young titlist was very gaunt, skinny and weak. Immediately after weighing in he sprinted to get some fluids in him. Even worse for Chavez Jr. fans, a source confirmed to me that on Wednesday Chavez Jr. was six pounds overweight. On the other hand, Martinez looked in great shape and was absolutely pumped. He easily smiled off and goaded Mexican fans chanting “puto” at him, and appeared to relish the idea of the promised beating he planned to inflict on Chavez Jr. tomorrow night. I saw this fight as a late KO for Martinez, but after the weigh-in I predict Martinez makes it a point to outclass Chavez Jr. in route to a 6th round KO.
