Rosales-Martinez on Jacobs-Chavez Jr. undercard

An intriguing matchup between former world champion Cristofer “El Latigo” (The Whip) Rosales (29-4, 20 KOs) of Nicaragua and Julio Cesar Martinez (14-1, 11 KOs) of Mexico is set. The two will square off for the vacant WBC flyweight title December 20th in Phoenix, Arizona on the undercard of the main event between Daniel Jacobs and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Rosales won this same title last year on the road with a thrilling upset knockout of then-unbeaten power punching Daigo Higa. He went on to defend the title once before being decisioned by the local fighter Charlie Edwards.

Martinez appeared to stop and dethrone Edwards in his last bout but this was overturned to a no-decision because Martinez hit Edwards while he was down. Edwards then vacated the title to move up 115 leaving the next highest available contenders Rosales and Martinez to fight for the title.

This will be the U.S. debut for Rosales who is currently training in Miami, Florida under the watchful eye of his manager William Ramirez/WRAM Boxing. “Cristofer arrived from Nicaragua to Miami in phenomenal shape. I have no doubt he will regain his title,” said Ramirez.

  • Chavez Jr. is a good matchup for Jacob’s intentions in a new weight class. Honestly I don’t see any importance in this fight and a successful run for Jacob at 168, especially if he had the good idea of facing Callum Smith or David Benavidez.
    A good fight is in the undercard, between Cristofer Rosales and Julio Cesar Martinez. This is a fight with two bangers that carry serious power.Hard to predict the winner, but highly unlikely it will go the distance

  • OMG what a Great fight for both of them,,Chavez confidence is back up after his win and Jacobs we all know will give a great performance,,hard to say but I am going with Jacobs but at the same time I am not sleeping on Chavez..both fighters are Hungry
