The version of sweet pea that beat vasquez would really struggle against today's version of martinez also.
Yeah Winky developed a better defense and got stronger. But it's not like Martinez's defense or his strength is near the level Wright developed to anyway, so I don't see that as being relevant.
I agree that Whitaker would struggle against Martinez though. Whitaker was clever enough to befuddle Vasquez but against a more atheltically gifted fighter the extra pounds would really show on him.
