And it was Martinez hanging on and being rocked in the later rounds,shortly before handing his belt to Burns.
Roman Martinez is a tomato can. He never fought any buddy of note at Junior Lightweight. He ducked Humberto Soto even though they had the same Promoter Top Rank. He was a paper champion at best.

And my point was you British fans claiming Burns has a great chin. When the Martinez fight clearly shows that isn't the case.

Broner is gonna destroy him just as bad as Floyd destroyed Hatton.
