And they were very right when they said he shouldn’t be mentioned on the same level as Pac and May, pound-for-pound wise.
They didn't just say Martinez didn't belong in the same sentence as Pacquiao and Margarito, they said he wasn't a P4P fighter...period. You agree with this? They also dismissed 09 as being a bad year for Martinez, failing to mention that he actually stopped Cintron, and that a lot of people had him beating Williams in their first fight. These are two pretty big points, I feel.
The SKY team were waving the British flag. No question about it.
In boxing people only seem to judge you based on your last fight, mosley ko's margarito and everyone thinks he is awesome and a warrior, he runs vs pac and is a coward now according to many.
Sergio destroys williams and he is a god, struggles with barker and is an overrated bum.
The truth is more somewhere in the middle.
Good post. Absolutely.
