Sergio Martinez is a legit middleweight fighter, realistically he might be a little better at junior middleweight. Julio Ceaser Chavez Jr is a middleweight who could fighting at Light Heavyweight, so I am not surprised that the punches that did connect had an effect on Martinez.
Here is a rundown of Martinez’s injuries.
- Broken left Hand (probably from the 5 million straight left hands he hit JCC with)
- Eight stitches of left eye.
- Two Staples on the top of his head (from accidental head butt).
- Torn Ligaments in right knee (might need surgery).
People are salivating for a rematch, but it won’t be for a while until Martinez heals up.
