At 154 martinez would be a zombie, i know he claims he can make the weight ok but he is after a big payday, he has looked like a big middleweight in his last three fights and I think dropping a weight would kill him.
I agree that the fight would have to be at 160 to get the best Martinez.
Yes it would be a high risk fight, but if Mayweather really wants to be remembered alongside the greats he should take these risks, what an achievement it would be if he won.
Just think how Roy Jones would have been remembered if he'd retired after Ruiz
