Sergio Martinez vs Matthew Macklin

22 posts in this topic

Interesting as to what will happen after this fight, Martinez has pretty much exhausted his list of names at MW that he is willing to fight, he is 37 now and looking for a big name and a payday, the likes of Gennadiy Golovkin and Dimitri Pirog as good as they may be, simply aren't big enough draws.

Martinez is likely to want to put on a show against the much more physical macklin in the hopes of securing a big fight as his next bout, but I expect Macklin to make it scrappy and difficult, similar to Barker

Martinez is probably one of the most exciting fighters to watch in the sport but he is really going to have to move up in weight if he wants to fight a 'big name', Pacquiao and Mayweather seem reluctant to make the jump to 160, or to even take him up on his offer of him draining to 150, which at his age will be unwise.

Both weighed in today at just under the WW limit, I've always thought Kel looks very big on fight night, he seemed very thin at the weigh in, seems like he could make JMW pretty comfortably. I can see him finding it pretty difficult to stay at the weight as he gets older and fills out more.

Martinez is one of them 'once a generation fighters' who has all the talent in the world but had a tough ride in the industry and never got the recognition/fights he deserves

Its a shame because he is easily top 3 p4p yet nobody outside of the scene gives a f*ck about him or even has interest in him

Hes a marketable guy as well, can tell Dibella is struggling eveytime he speaks on Maravilla

Lou Dibella - Dibella Entertainment

McGirt did a good job with Macklin, that's the best he's looked
