The first round of the HBO pay-per-view main event between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Sergio Martinez saw a slow start to the fight with a rabid crowd. Both men were feeling things out in the early part of the round. Martinez was able to work the jab and dig to the body a little bit in the round while Chavez wasn't able to get much of anything done.
The crowd is wild for Chavez though and things feel like they could get interesting very quickly with the way the initial round played out.
Round Score: 10-9 Martinez
Fight Score: 10-9 Martinez
