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!


Pound For Pound The Top Three

Who are the best three pound four pound fighters in the world? My pick would be as follows:

1. Manny Pacquiao      2. Sergio Martinez      3. Juan M. Marquez

Manny Pacquiao wow what a fighter! This little man is tough, he throws so many punches and is constantly on the attack. He is un-believable. His fight with De La Hoya, was spectacular. He destroyed Rickey Hatton,  I thought he was dead after he fell to the canvas. His last fight with Miguel Cotto was another fight in which Pacquiao just demolished his opponent.

Cotto is an excellent fighter his only previous loss was to Antonio Margarito. After Margarito’s T.K.O. at the hands of Shane Mosley a fighter who Cotto had beaten. Margarito got suspended from boxing in the U.S. for one year for illegally wrapping his fist. We can then begin to appreciate what a great fighter Pacquiao really is. He gave more damage to Cotto then Margarito who used plaster of paris on his wrapping!

Lets not forget the two great fights between Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. Those two fights will probably go down in the all time great fights.

Sergio Martinez, wow another great fighter. The Argentine fighting out Spain who now has relocated to California is awesome. A smart fighter quick fisted, good counter puncher, goes to the body picks his punches and has an excellent chin. He also has the power to knock you out.

He has been the victim of two bad decisions in 2009. He decked Kirmit Cintron twice in their bout, out boxed him and made a mess of his face. The judges gave it a draw. One lousy decision.

Then he takes on Paul Williams in the 160 LB. division, a fighter that no one wants to fight. Kelly Pavlik had postponed twice. He gives Williams a beating in a fight that will most likely be one of the top three fight of 2009 and again for the second time in a year they rob the victory from him. This fight was a close fight, but never the less Sergio Martinez was robbed!

Juan Manuel Marquez a great boxer! His two memorable fights with Pacquiao. Who could forget the fight in which Manny puts him down three times in the first round only to then find himself going down to the canvas in the fifth. Those were two great fights and the toughest opponent that Manny has faced to date.

His fight with Floyd Mayweather was a good fight. I didn’t see the fight like the way the commentators or judges viewed it. It was a very close fight into the ninth round. Mayweather landed a flash knockdown. Marquez ran into a straight jab, he went down and got right up again. The last four rounds of the fight Mayweather was landing all his jabs smack on Marquez face. Which won him the fight.

Never the less Mayweather didn’t make the original weight and he was obviously the bigger and stronger of the two. Marquez being the fighter that he is took the fight any ways.
