Can someone make a video about Sergio Martinez 'adjusting'? Because I really don't see it. I just see a guy taking advantage over other fighter's mistakes such like stamina or stupid fightin, not really adjusting.
Muthafreakin' +1!!! THANK YOU! I have YET to see Sergio make these "adjustments" during fights. Luckily for him, his opponents tire because of his constant movement and ability to counter punch...not because he counter punches at will (not true), but the shit happens to land flush after so many attempts.
So yes, his opponents give him their best shot in the middle rounds because they feel themselves wearing down, and he (Martinez) tends to get stuck in the mud in the middle rounds, for some odd reason.
Seriously, Sergio leaves himself open for punches as well...straight punches to be exact. Does anybody notice that he gets hit more than he should, and it usually happens during exchanges? I saw soooo many opportunities for Macklin to catch Sergio with some good shots, and guess where those openings were? Yep you got it, straight up the middle.
Guess who likes to throws punches straight up the middle? Yep you got it...Mayweather himself. Let's look for Martinez to be the bigger man if they fight at 54, but guess what punch Floyd will lnad if nothing else lands...yep, you got it...that straight right hand.
Sergio DOES NOT adjust as great as people give him credit for. He's so used to being first, that it's crazy. When guys like Dzinrurik (sp) and Barker can land shots on Sergio, then look for Mayweather to land those same shots with confidence, precision, and a better follow-up other than the usual, "Oh shit, I landed a punch against Martinez" moments that Sergio's opponents have.
Im not saying that this will be a grand walk in the park for Floyd, but picture this, who has Martinez fought with speed, great defense, who lands precise punches...even if he only throws a handful? Another thing...when those straight right comes flying in, will Sergio be left fighting with an unusually high sense of defense, or will get peppered and wonder why he cant stop getting caught with the same punch?
Oh yeah, though Mayweather insinuated a Martinez fight (I believe he did, cant remember), just look for it to happen at 54. I wouldn't hold my breath any time soon, especially since the Cotto fight hasn't happened. Mayweather may have fought for the Jr. Middleweight title, but he's never tipped 154 on the scale. He more than likely wont for the Cotto fight, and the same goes for the Martinez fight. So let's look for Floyd to be a WW and Martinez to hit 154 on the head.
