Undefeated boxing sensation Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1) will defend his WBC middleweight title against top pound-for-pound pugilist Sergio Martinez (49-2-2) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sept. 15, 2012.
And MMAmania.com will be there.
That's because AT&T has named yours truly its "Official Blogger" for the upcoming "sweet science" extravaganza, which kicks off next week in "Sin City." In addition to the usual fight night coverage, you can expect daily updates throughout the week heading into one of boxing's biggest showdowns of 2012.
So what does that have to do with the best mixed martial arts (MMA) blog on the Internet?
I'm glad you asked. In addition to being part of the combat sports family, as evidenced by the frequent collaboration between top trainers like Freddie Roach and Howard Davis Jr., boxing has been a part of this site since its inception, and it's not unusual to see our beloved MMA Maniacs hopping on and sounding off whenever we cover a marquee fight.
We're doin' it again.
The only difference this time around is bigger, better and more comprehensive coverage. It's a great way to get your fight fix while Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is on hiatus. Make sure you keep it locked in right here and if you don't already, "Like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Much more to come ... stay tuned.
