The result was Martinez by unanimous decision, winning the fight 118-109 on two judges’ cards with the third judge scoring it 117-110. During the post-fight interview with Max Kellerman, Martinez said of Chavez Jr.

“He fought a great fight and he was tougher than I expected.”

Chavez Jr., in his post-fight interview to Kellerman stated,

“I started way too late. I thought I could do the whole fight what I did the last round. I didn’t get started until the eighth round.”

So it begs the question, what’s next? While Martinez essentially dominated the fight and showed why he is considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters. Chavez Jr. raised some questions. What if he did pick up the pace earlier? Would the result be different? At the very least Chavez Jr. earned a measure of respect and raised the possibility of a rematch. When Martinez was asked if he would grant a rematch to Chavez Jr., he stated to Kellerman

“We are two professionals and if Julio wants a rematch and the public wants a rematch, we’ll do a rematch.”

Let’s wait and see folks.
