Default Re: Sergio Martinez vs a selection of yesteryears MW's.

He's quite clearly the best MW in the world today, so my question is, how would he fare against some of the filmed Mw's from yesteryear.

This is not a gauntlet he'd run, it's just a selection of 1 off fantasy fights.

How do you think he goes vs:

Les Darcy
Mickey Walker
Freddie Steele
Fred Apostoli
Tony Zale
Jake La Motta
Ray Robinson
Emile Griffith
Carlos Monzon
Marvin Hagler
Michael Nunn
Bernard Hopkins

All of these guys have a decent amount of prime footage available. The question is, how successful would Sergio be against each of them individually?

He has NO chance and gets stopped by everyone. Apart from Apostoli, Darcy and steele who he would have a chance of surviving against.
