Poor Sergio...cant get a credible fight to save his life (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif) First he was pretty much getting robbed out of decisions (Margarito (sort of), Cintron, P. Williams I) then he brutally cleaned P. Willy's clock in the rematch...and scared his potential opponents shitless. You would think that if a guy puts a credible opponent to sleep, then it would raise his stocks for bigger fights, but it ended up working against him. What other big name fighter would even want to get in the ring with him and the possibility of a humiliating KO like that is not out of the question?

Im sure it sucks to be in Sergio's position at this point. As dumb as some of these stipulations are in these big fights nowadays, Im surprised nobody offered him a fight and stated in the contract that he couldn't use his left hand in the fight. Imagine that in a contract, "You, Sergio Martinez must effectively limit the use of your left hand during the fight. In the event that you must use your left hand, it must only be utilized for the purpose of producing a jab. No left hooks, counter punches, overhands, etc".

sounds like a ray leonard contract! lol. "you, marvin hagler shall box orthodox for the first few rounds..."

sergio has options. quillen and pirog have both called him out. i'd much rather see them fight him than barker.

there's a big difference between calling someone out and calling someone out then fighting them. i think JCC Jr has even said he would fight Martinez. Hype would be a better person to talk to about it but i never really see any serious offers to Martinez for a fight. if he's still moving up to 168 in the future i wouldn't be surprised if some people wait it out.
