Sergio Martinez Video clip Score: 5 / five
Abel Sanchez, the trainer of Gennady Golovkin noted that the next opponent for Golovkin is going to be Martin Murray. Sanchez thinks that the tactics that Golovkin follows during the fight will make Murray get absolutely chopped down on 21st February match at the Salle des Étoiles in Monaco in Monte Carlo.
Sanchez thinks that if British fighter comes out in full force using his tactics, he will last a maximum of 3 to 4 rounds but, if he doesn’t use his clam shell guard just the way he has done in his fights against Felix Strumand Sergio Martinez, he is surely to be reduces into a pile of dust at Monte Carlo.
Sanchez says that Martin has already proved that he is a fighterof an A level and that if he comes out to fight his only intention is to win, which will be a max of 3-4 rounds. But, if he chooses to hide behind his shell, he will be defeated sooner. Continue reading 'Sanchez Says That Murray Needs To Come Out Of His Shell'»
The life of a boxer can be very cruel – at one moment, he might be standing atop the pinnacle of his career and in the very next he might become so irrelevant that it would be a surprise that he was so good once.
That is what has happened to Argentine boxer and former lineal Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez who seems to have lost all that magic that saw him regularly ranked within the top ten Pound for Pound fighters in the world a mere six months back.
The Argentine suffered a technical knockout defeat in his last outing in what could only be termed as the worst fight of his career as Miguel Cotto toyed with him before knocking him out in the tenth round.
Despite the performance, many believe Martinez might have re-injured one or both of his knees as the fight wore on and that caused him to completely capitulate in front of the hard hitting Cotto.
But that doesn’t take away the fact that despite it all, Sergio Martinez fought like a true warrior till the very end and he will be hoping he still has that fight left in him as he looks to mount a comeback. No one will know the feeling better than Cotto, who says a boxer is just one fight away from redemption.
And one fight that might give the Argentine his old charm and relevance back is a bout against the unified Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. He is a talented boxer and he is looking to make a name for himself by fighting an accomplished big name with a huge fan following and with the options limited in front of him, it might just give Sergio Martinez the opportunity he is seeking to return to prominence and put the loss to Cotto behind him.
