I fail to realize how someone with half-a-brain could consider this fighter the best. As far as I'm concerned, from where I sit, and according to many; to be the best, you have to beat the best. Ric Flair always said; 'To be the man, you have to beat the man'. Lou DiBella, my hometown promoter, has stated that he thinks that Floyd Mayweather would be the one to take the fight. Manny Pacquiao has one million excuses yet again. He fought Margarito, who's the same size as Martinez, but Martinez is just too big for Pacquiao. The reason has nothing to do with size. It has everything to do with the ability. We all know that Margarito is flat footed, slow, and has been brutally knocked out in the past (just like Miguel Cotto). Sergio Martinez, on the other hand, is a fighter that just KO'd an undefeated fighter. People may say that Dzinzurik was a smaller man moving up, but so was Martinez when he won Ring Magazine (Lineal) Championship from Pavlik. It's not about the size of the fighter, it's about the size of the fignt inside of the fighter. If he's not going to take no for an answer, then he will fight hard for the victory. We'll see what happens against Barker when they meet. Pacquiao needs to do something drastic to re-assert himself back in the equation. Beating Marquez will mean nothing. If Mayweather and Pacquiao finish their careers without fighting, we will have nothing to compare but their jackets. Mayweather's list of fighters heading down the stretch would trump Pacquiao's. Especially if he goes undefeated, while beating the winners of today's big fights (not the fights from 2 years prior). We will see what happens in the ring in the future. People talk, the media talks, and the fighters talk. At some point you have to get in there and prove it. Mayweather's been proving it, and he'll prove it once again on Sept. 17th. Pacquiao's proved nothing to me. Marquez will still be able to use his technical ability to further expose the flaws Mosley exposed in Pac's game. I'm confident that Floyd Mayweather will remain undefeated going down the stretch. Fighters are so concerned by his speed. I wanna see Manny step up. If he beats Marquez easily, he has to step up to the plate. If he fights anyone other than Mayweather in May of 2012, I will not let any of the 'talkers' live it down. Our guy's (USA) ready to fight. Tell Team Pacquiao that we'll be waiting for him on the other side. Don't flake out.

wow. now dibella's resorted to begging. very unflattering. he should really just focus on optimizing sergio's situation. he's riding a great wave and he can create his own huge paydays by becoming a draw in the sport. he has the skills. i can't understand why this guy is fighting on the east coast when it is clear that he has a serious base here in socal. martinez is the kind of fighter that can fill staples with the right opponent.

Interesting remarks from Dibella. I can see his points but I'm questioning the motives. It's obvious that he wants to capitalize on Martinez's momentum, maybe he should go about it another way though

All that we can hope for, is that Martinez's fight with Baker happens to take a mysterious turn and Sergio ends up looking shitty during some part of the fight. Then Im sure that EEEEVERYBODY will come out of the woodworks and demand a fight with him. Other than that, we can just hold our breath and hope that these other guys will grow some balls in the next few months (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dntknw.gif)

Good post Haz, plenty of good points throughout. The middleweight champ def isnt too big for Manny, and Manny definitely has done nothing impressive throughout his career, thus, you are right that its time for him to step up to the mark, "Floyd style".

If Manny doesnt agree to all of Floyds demands, including extra drug tests, and drop his lawsuit against the Mayweathers for slandering his name all over the media, which he has no right to bring up anyway, and step up and fight Mayweather (who is in no way responsible for this fight not happening) then you should definitely come in here and single out all the talkers one by one and use your words and eloquence to completely destroy them.

Lloyd, Lloyd, Lloyd we've talked about this, stay out of this thread and let Haz kick it with his t-shirt crew. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

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

Sad, but true. They just need to make the best of Sergio's present situation, instead of trying to force guys to move up or threatening his own performance by attempting to move down to '54. Although Dibella says that Martinez can fluctuate between '54 and '60...Im hard pressed to believe that he his performance will be greater by stepping down in weight.
