It's a fucking good question, and I'll assume the majority will say they will go for the legacy building bout...even if they have never stepped foot in the ring.
From my boxing experience, I never turned down a fight/spar, etc...so I will go on that basis and say IF I was one of the top guys in the sport, I would have the confidence to step in with the top guy in Martinez.
Whole different story when you actually have to consider stepping in with him for real though.
