I personally think this is a step down for Team Martinez but yet it is understandable...no one wants to fight him outside of Pirog who hasn't done anything as far as opposition and earning his name in the states. Martinez can't fight Chavez, Cotto, and Alvarez who are all champs in the division as their promoters look to protect their star fighters as they are deemed not ready. I always thought Martinez should move up in weight to super middleweight but he's an unusually small middleweight who's inbetween super middleweight and jr middleweight itself. Martinez needs to take a name opponent like Abraham or maybe down the line Kirkland if he wants to boost his name. The man's abilities deserve more recognition as he is considered a top P4P champion in today's era. With many promoters swindling the alphabet belts to their own fighters boxing is looking more and more like business acumen instead of glorified efforts.

Martinez TKO 11th.

Martinez should see if he could get a fight with Sturm. Think that would at least be better than fighting Macklin and would be one step closer to unifying the belts.

It won't happen, Sturm is ageing and is now looking to fight sub par opponents after that Macklin fight. Sturm isn't the same fighter he use to be, he's been holding on that belt before the Macklin fight for a long time fighting weak opposition but still get paid so you think he won't keep doing that? Only way Dibella can get that fight is offer money and go to the sanctioning bodies for a unification purse bid to make that fight but thats a long process waiting to happen. The middleweight champs are mostly with promoters who won't risk putting them up against the other champs or great competitiors. Chavez jr., Cotto, and Alvarez is some of the champs in that division that is making it uneventful. Guys like Molina, Martinez, eventually Kirkland, and more are very deserving of title shots soon or should be the ones with their belts. I mean seriously..look at all the fights that could happen...

Daniel Geale vs Andy Lee

Geale vs Martinez

Geale vs Pirog

Geale vs Peter Quillin

Geale vs Golovkin

Geale vs Ishida

Pirog vs Golovkin

Andy Lee vs Golovkin

Andy Lee vs Martinez

Andy Lee vs Pirog

Kirkland vs Pirog

Kirkland vs Golovkin

Kirkland vs Martinez

Martinez vs Golovkin

Lara vs Kirkland

Lara vs Andy Lee

Lara vs Martinez

Peter Quillin vs Lara

Quillin vs Martinez

etc.

the match ups is endless but thanks to Windbag Arum and Bottom Rank and OscarDela Fish Filet and turning a wonderful Robert Schaefers Promotions back to Fishnets Boy Promotions by protecting Alvarez, Chavez Jr, and Cotto who are all champs in those divisions doesn't help at all.
