Martinez after boxing superbly for 11 rounds and making the bigger man look positively average, comes out swinging in the 12th and nearly gets KO'd! That would have been a travesty my heart was in my mouth at the time.
Good shout. Would have been a travesty indeed, but is that the intriguing thing about boxing?? If man united are blasting someone 5-0, with 2 minutes to go there is no chance of a comeback. In boxing even 2:59 of the final round is enough time to turn it around!!
