I think this is a good fight for sergio, its sort of a comeback fight to see if his knee is good and Murray is a solid opponent who many thought beat sturm.
The biggest reason I see martinez doing this event is to push his numbers, he had a good showing against chavez and now if be does big numbers in Argentina he can use it as a counter for the "he isn't a draw" argument when he tries to fry bigger fish if he gets past Murray. I mean the dude is fighting in a soccer stadium in one of the most passionate sports countries in the world with a fellow countryman on the undercard, I'm sure the fight will do well. I just hope there isn't a riot like last time.
He does need a comeback fight, and the chance to shake off a few cobwebs (not sure if that's one word or two). If I'm not mistaken, this is probably his longest layoff in the past few years, so that coupled with surgery and bruised fists, he does need a less than stellar opponent.
I'm not saying that Murray's a bum, but I'm sure they didn't hold this fight in Argentina against someone that would beat Sergio. Granted, Murray may be a tough cookie, but he was picked for a reason.
LMAO at that riot from a year ago (I believe). I remember some numb-nut biting his opponent on the shoulder, but still had his mouthpiece in while doing it.

That fight aint going more thabn 6 rounds. I wonder if Chris will kiss Stiverne like he did that last guy when he was getting knocked out. Of course I guess I have to cheer for Chris since he is from my homestate but really I think he is a waste. The closer the fight gets which is tomorrow I guess I can get pumped up for it. If anything I will be excited to see Ricky Hatton. I wonder who does more coke Hatton or Oscar?
I agree. Sergio so call out GGG when he wins, that will have HBO having wet dreams for months.
You dont think its going more than six?! Interesting. I need to watch a few Stiverne fights to get a good idea of what to expect. I already know how fat ass is going to fight, so need to check out any of fights.
As for Ricky and Oscar's coke habits, the best question is, who does the most incriminating stuff while high? Ricky had suicidal ideations, which can somewhat normal, depending on what's going on in your life. Oscar on the hand, gets this itch to wear lingerie...that's not one of the first things that should cross your mind after snorting a line. Smh
