Sergio Martinez’s promoter Lou DiBella was asked today by a local reporter in Los Angeles about the WBC president picking Chavez Jr. over Martinez and even betting on it that Chavez wins. It now turns out the bet was over a dinner and that the WBC president said anyone can win the fight.
UPDATE: On his Twitter page DiBella says he overreacted as he did not realise the bet was over a dinner and the WBC twitter as well:
@WBCBoxing what our president said is that either one could win, not just Martinez and came out wrong. It was a misunderstanding, to which DiBella has already said he overreacted, it looked bad but as a matter of fact.
Here is the original video we posted ealier today with DiBella reacting to the WBC bet question.
