neither of them will take the fight.

why the fuck should either of them take the fight. what the fuck this guys a muppet. not Haz btw am on about DiBella. I don't understand why fighters need to keep putting on weight and moving up and up, soon enough we'll have david haye calling out mayweather and pacman. if martinez wants to go up the p4p go gain weight and win a lot of belts, beat a lot of serious contenders, and then he can be p4p number 1


No serious contenders want to fight him.. get the dilemma? I actually thought the angulo match up would have been good, but he wanted no piece of Martinez. Cause im positive he will ko marg, cotto, chavez Jr, or Canelo. He's a very good fighter with a pretty good trainer, sucks no one really wants to fight him. But he's giving these other European prospects some shots though, that's commendable.

they would be meeting in the middle and all three of them have had at least one fight at 154. Pac and mayweather wouldn't be doing anything they haven't done before. Martinez isn't asking anyone to come to 160 and is willing to come in 6 pounds under the limit.

But neither of those guys have fought a serious threat at that weight. This guy is arguably the best active fighter now, so I guess its understandable why manny or Floyd wouldn't even want to be in the same room has him. But I've heard a lot of rumors that Floyd is seriously considering the fight, don't know if its true or not tho.

they both held a title at that weight. it's not like they fought some fringe top 10 fighter then said 154 is too heavy for them.

Sorry but pac vs marg coming of a long lay off after being lit up by sugar for a vacant title just doesn't qualify as a quality opponent to me..
The de la hoya fight was legit but dlh of then is not as good as the sergio of now. So they have never fought a guy of this level at that weight, which again is a rational explanation why they won't fight him.

and that's exactly why boxing keeps slipping. the two fighters representing the sport will go up a division for a safe fight but wont take on the MW champion at 154. the MW champion coming down from 180+ to make 154. i bet if Martinez looked shitty in his next fight Mayweather and Pac would be all over him as a potential opponent.

Completely agree, and of course Martinez would take that fight because he is aging and its possibly his last shot at a good pay day.

This is also another sad point because he is not considered a big name even though he is an exciting fighter to watch who isnt a sloppy brawler like most other fan favorites.
This guy could sell very well if he was promoted better.

This is exactly what I stated earlier on this thread (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif) It's sad, but true.
