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

Three picks i'm definitely happy with.

He beats la motta.
He loses to apostoli and robinson.

Jake will in his face throughout but doesn't have the power necessary to knock martinez out imo. Jake will consistently walk into straight rights and whilst his chin will take the shots, he's gonna have very little chance of winning any rounds. Martinez has shown he can step up a gear late on so stamina and pace won't be an issue.

Apostoli was very good at fighting the way we saw macklin fight martinez, with more aggression and better movement. I had it even after ten and given macklin's success and apostoli's superiority I can easily imagine fred slipping a straight left, landing a big combination. Matt's probably the best guy with head movement martinez has faced and he came close to the upset so I think apostoli winning a decision is a fairly likely outcome.

Robinson is the perfect fighter pretty much and he'll have too much of everything for martinez. He soundly out boxes him to a decision.
