Chavez Jr. - Martinez: Crazy 12th round 


The 12th round of Saturday nights Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - Sergio Martinez title fight will go down as one of the best final rounds in the history of boxing.  Martinez dominated Chavez Jr. for the first 11 rounds of the fight, so much so that Chavez's trainer Freddie Roach told him after the 10th round he was going to stop the fight if Julio didn't do something.  Per Ringside punch stats Martinez landed 322 punches to Chavez's 178.  Heading into the 12th round Chavez Jr. lost the first 11 rounds on two judges scoring cards and lost 10 rounds on the third judges card.  With HBO's Jim Lamply going on a tangent on how Martinez was discovered and Max Kellerman questioning if Chavez Jr. "can salvage this event somehow", Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. channelled some of his fathers boxing magic and with a bruised face and bloody nose he was able to knock Martinez down twice with left hooks in an absolute crazy 12th round.  Martinez would not run and hide and the tw0 fighters stood toe to toe exchanging blows.  Taylor was able to get up after both knock downs and won a unanimous decision 118-110, 118-110, and 117-110 on the three judges score cards.  Watch the video of the entire 12th round above.
