Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. may not have been able to defeat Sergio Martinez in last night's HBO pay-per-view main event, but he has nothing to be ashamed of. Chavez was badly outclassed for the majority of the fight, with Martinez able to outbox him and pick up enough confidence to even engage in a little bit of showboating.
But in the final round, Chavez stunned Martinez with a flurry and dropped him to the canvas. Martinez was able to get to his feet and managed to survive a furious Chavez assault to the final bell.
