Re: Sky's mocking of Martinez P4P status
The commentary team did not hide their rooting interest at all. They were openly saying things like "we hope Martinez did not take this fight seriously so perhaps he will fade down the stretch." I forget the main commentator's name, but he was openly mocking Martinez's hands-down boxing and said that he was making a fool of himself.
If anyone has ever seen Martinez fight, he fights with his hands low all the time and it's not something new he did to show up Barker.
I usually find Sky to be pretty respectful of both British and non-British fighters, but their coverage of the fight was pretty disgraceful. Mocking a champion round after round and only giving credit to Barker even after the knockout.
