Of course Martinez will try to come to 154 to take on a smaller fighter. Martinez likes calling out small guys, but you don't hear Martinez saying he will fight anywhere north of 160 against Ward when that was introduced.

Martinez would tower Floyd and Pac in size. Both of them are natural 147 lbs and Martinez would be a huge JMW.

Let's not be to hypocritical here.
How am I being hypocritical? I said I don't fault Floyd for not fighting Martinez or Canelo...and I agree, Martinez is a ***** IMO. He expects the little gys to move up and face him at a catch weight but refuses to move 8 pounds North and fight Froch or Ward at 168. All I'm saying is, Floyd doesn't like to take risky fights anymore....hasn't since he was a lightweight and I did say I respect him for fighting Cotto.
