WEEKEND BOXING RESULTS: CHAVEZ JR. WINS CONVINCINGLY, ADAMEK DOESN’T!
JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR. SHOWS PROGRESS IN TOPPLING ANDY LEE
El Paso, TX- Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., (159 lbs), Culiacan, Mexico TKO 7 Andy Lee, (159.25), Detroit, MI. (WBC 160 lb. title)
Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32 KOs) looked impressive in his thorough dismantling of Lee (28-2, 20 KOs) who was thought to be his toughest test to date. The fight was stopped at 2:21. Jr. says he will fight “true” middleweight king Sergio Martinez in the fall. I’ll believe it when it’s signed. But I must add, Chavez has improved and will tower over Martinez both in height and body mass.
NBC SPORTS MAIN HAS SOME CONTROVERSY
Newark, NJ- Tomasz Adamek, (225), Jersey City, NJ UD 12 Eddie Chambers, (202), Philadelphia, PA. Adamek (46‐2, 29 KOs) scored a tactical win over Chambers (36-3, 18 KOs). Adamek was busier, but Chambers was quicker and in the minds of many won the fight. In the end, the judges scored it 116-112 twice and 119-109. Outside of Adamek fans, the decision was not well received, especially by the NBC TV crew. Chambers claimed to have suffered an injury to his left arm early in the fight.
WINNING PHILLY FIGHTER “GREEN” BUT WITH POTENTIAL!
Bryant Jennings, (222), Philadelphia, PA UD 10 Steve Collins, (244), Houston, TX. Jennings (14-0, 8 KOs) makes Collins (25-2, 18 KOs) look like an amateur on his way to a knockdown and shutout on scores of 100-89 three times. Keep an eye on Jennings!

HOLM WINS BATTLE IN “CHICK” REMATCH WITH MATHIS
Albuquerque, NM- Holly Holm, (145.5), Albuquerque, NM UD 10 Anne Mathis, (146) France, (World female 147 lb. title). Holm (30-2-4, 9 KOs) avenges December 2011 KO loss to Mathis by “boxing smartly” throughout, never giving the powerful and strong Mathis (26-1, 21 KOs) the leverage she needed to throw and land bombs.
