Luc-has fought the better comp and has been involved in some tough desicions.
Leon, I would have to disagree with this statement. If you think about it, Maidana has been fed to more than a few good fighters. Ortiz, Kotlenik, Alexander, Corley (gatekeeper), Khan, and Morales. I believe the Khan fight was FOTY for 2010, dont quote me on that though. The Morales fight was a big fight. The Ortiz fight was an upset.
As for Matthysse, he's fought the likes of Corley (gatekeeper), Judah, Alexander, and he just had a fight with Soto. Now, had he fought Morales last Sept. while Erik was still a hot ticket (right after the Maidana fight), then this discussion could possibly be a bit different.
Im a Maidana fan til the end! I pick him over Matthysse and Martinez because he's better at mounting an offense, rather than Matthysse who starts slow and hopes to counter, and Sergio who waits to counter but jabs and tries to land one punch at a time until his opponent slows down a bit.
