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.

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.
