Default Re: Julio Cesar Chavez's most creditable win?

There's no doubt about it, his win against Azabache Martinez is his most underrated win.

Martinez was a guy that gave EVERYONE (bar Chavez) hell throughout his career, and he's one of the best fighters of recent times never to win a world title. Unfortunately every time he got a shot there was Chavez or a Fenech or a Nelson in his way. That said he was a little unfortunate not to walk away with the title the first time he faced Azumah. Fought a great fight that night.

Anyway, Chavez's systematic beatdown of Martinez was a great early performance by Chavez, before weight issues started to get on top of him in 85-6.
