I just like to add that i dont think his power was as good at 140 either.
Another informative and good read, thanks
He definitely has an argument for winning the first Nelson fight. I edged it for Nelson but I acknowledge there were some swing rounds in that one and I have no prob with anyone thinking Azabache nicked it.
You know if you look at Martinez's resume you won't think much of him, but this guy arguably beat Azumah Nelson, Roger Mayweather and even when he was an old man he came rather close to knocking Fenech out. He never won a title but he was swimming with sharks in those days.
