The BIG KO Of 2010 By: Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez

Let me start out by Congratulating Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez on his impressive KO victory in the second round over his worthy opponent Paul Williams. That over hand left which was heard all around the world that landed flush on the face of Williams whose face suddenly dropped as well as his entire body was out cold on the canvas. No way Williams was getting up from this one!

I read an interesting article by Gabriel Montoya on Max Boxing News on how HBO treated Sergio Martinez into either taking the fight under their terms or no fight. Williams excuses for wanting a Catch Weight of 158lbs, but he comes into the fight at 168lbs. All I  could say is that Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez did not leave it in the hands of the judges and maybe just maybe he could now get the RESPECT that he DESERVES as indeed a top contender for the Honor of  # 1 POUND for POUND category.

I had said this over a year ago that by this time this year Sergio Maravilla Martinez would have to be recognized as the Best Pound for Pound Boxer in the World. In No way am I taking away from the Great Manny Pacquiao. All I’m doing is going with the Boxing Hype that has always been attached to Paul Williams as being the most feared boxer in the sport. I guess Sergio must not have known that either in the first fight when the judges stole a close fight from him nor this time when he put Paul Williams to sleep in the second round!

JRSportsBrrief’s this man gets it and has great way of expressing himself as well. All you sport fans should check him out he’s GOOD!

JR, it’s kind of funny you think Max Kellerman is talking nonsense. He the only one of the HBO commentators that is objective and calls it as it is! Emanuel Steward  always has a dog in the fight and is as bias as they come. Jim Lampley is all over the place somewhat like O’Reilly on Fox News and Larry Merchant is now the new Howard Cosell.

Personally I would like to see Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez take on the only man who has beat him and that would be Antonio Margarito. But at a none “Catch Weight” he’s the Middle Weight Champion of the World and middle weight is 160lbs. After he avenges his only career loss to Antonio Margarito, I would love to see him fight Floyd “I’m Too Scare To Fight Someone My Own Size Or The Pacman” Mayweather. That would be an excellent fight that would make the winner of the fight again at 160lbs prove if Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez is for REAL which he IS, or prove that Floyd is just a PUPPET of the elites in Boxing to generate money for them!

This is who I would like to see Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez fight all at 160 lbs and with Manny Pacquiao at 154lbs. and even at that weight Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez I truly believe is too much for even the Great Warrior Manny Pacquiao to even think of fighting.

1.Antonio Margarito

2.Floyd Mayweather

3.Shane Mosley

4.Bernard Hopkins

5.Kelly Pavlik

6. Manny Pacquiao

7.Paul Williams

Paquiao I love you! But I want to see you fight men your own size! Like another one with Juan Manuel Marquez. You have nothing more to prove! You are ONE GREAT FIGHTER who has the COMPLETE PACKAGE! You are fast,strong, have great cardio and have become an excellent ring technician to go along with the courage of what GREAT WARRIORS & LEGENDS are made off! A pleasure to watch and a gentleman inside as well as outside the ring. You have nothing to prove and all to lose if you continue to go up in weight and fight men that are bigger and stronger and if they get LUCKY and catch you with a bomb that will be the end. People tend to have short memories and I can just hear all the nonsense they will be saying. CHAMP continue to give us great fights but please fight guys your own size!

Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez you are the Undisputed Middle Weight Champ of the World and in my opinion the #1 Pound for Pound in the World as well! They have to appease to YOUR Terms , I wish you all the success that you deserve and thank you for always giving it your best! Once again Congratulations Champ for your GREAT victory and for conducting yourself as a gentleman as well, you are an asset to Boxing!


Sergio Martinez New WBC/WBO Middleweight Champion Of The World

Sergio Martinez, could be considered after Manny Pacquiao as not only the second best pound for pound fighter in the world but also one of the most exciting boxers as well. Once again he proves, to the world that he is for real. His fight against Kermit Cintron was one of the worst decisions of the previous year. He beat him easily, and the judges stole the fight by calling it a draw. Then he goes up in weight takes on Paul Williams, one of the best & most feared fighter in the world on short notice. Beats the bigger opponent in a close fight that was one of the best fights of the year, and is robbed again. Although it was a close tough fight, he won and for the second time in a year was at the mercy of judges who robbed him of the victory.

Now comes the opportunity for Sergio Martinez to fight for the middle weight title against world champion Kelly Pavlik.  A bigger,stronger, younger opponent who’s only real loss was to veteran boxer Bernard Hopkins who took him to school. Pavlik lost that fight before it even started. He was intimidated and it affected him through the whole fight. Unlike his fight with Hopkins , Pavlick was the bigger and stronger man in this bout and wasn’t at all intimidated by the smaller Argentine fighter. They both went at it, giving it there all in a good showing for both fighters.

This was another good fight for the quick handed Argentine who showed his good boxing skills, while at the same time his awkward style of boxing of moving in and out picking his shots with great accuracy was just too much for Pavlick to handle. I’m glad for all the boxing fans around the world, that the right unanimous decision was rendered. Good fight, and Sergio Martinez stock continues to rise the more that America gets to see him.

I would love to see the Floyd Mayweather fight Sergio Martinez at 154 lb. although this wont ever happen for the obvious reasons. Floyd couldn’t handle someone his own size with comparable hand speed, yet we can all dream. If Mosley comes prepared he should be able to dethrone the paper tiger that is Floyd Mayweather. I would like to see Sergio Martinez avenge his only real loss to date against Antonio Margarito. I would prefer to see the fight at 154 lb. I think that’s a better weight division for Martinez.

The true mark of a champion, isn’t the way one handles oneself while your winning. Rather it’s the way you handle defeat. To Sergio Martinez credit, he has proven himself up till now while being the victim of two horrendous decisions made by the judges on his previous fights with Kermit Cintron and Paul Williams to handle the judges decisions with class. Also when the Antonio Margarito illegal hand wrapping came into question before his KO lost to Mosley. Cintron was asked if it was possible that he could have encountered the same fate as Coto due to the illegal hand wraps.  He said that it was possible that Margarito could have used the illegal tactic in their bout. Yet when Martinez was asked the same question, he was humble enough to say the truth and not make an attempt to try to spin it. He basically said he got whoop that night.

Sergio Martinez  style of boxing with his hands down is just the way he chooses to fight. I don’t care about the show boating either, but the man is an extremely exciting fighter to watch. And in the four fights I seen him in, he has fought his heart out. Good for you Sergio, continue to fight as you have and soon everyone will know what many of us already do, you’re one great champion!
