Default Re: Roman Martinez to bully Burgos tonight

Last 4? both men had their moments as fatigue kicked in & both fighters landed some big shots, although I do admit Burgos had Martinez wobbled, but enough to rip a belt from a champion on neutral turf? It was too close for me to take a champs title away.

Team Burgos are going crazy for an immediate rematch, they should be careful what they wish for! If you cant beat a nutcase first time around, you should stay well away.

The late great Vernon Forrest vs Mayorga immediately springs to mind!
I'd fancy Burgos to stop Martinez in a rematch Dunky. I think he hurt him a few times. Once wobbled the legs and the body onslaughts done him.

I had him winning comfortably although i hear ya with regards to him letting Martinez into proceedings he did let Martinez back into fight in middle rounds but always felt he won the rounds.
