Default Re: Sergio Martinez to be used as sparring partner for Margarito?

I know that he is fighting Paul Williams, who is totally the opposite of Antonio Margarito, but he may be coming a couple days a week to camp. So more than likely we will be having Sergio Martinez as one of our sparring partners. We'll have another four to five sparring partners but Martinez will be one of them. As of now that is what his coach and his team have already told me."

What do you guys think? Not a bad person to have as a sparring partner. Considering Tony's weaknesses against southpaws, and Martinez' brilliant in and out movement around the ring, I think he'll be pretty useful at imitating Pac's style.
Oh snap! That came out of nowhere, but the sparring would be best for both. Martinez is a fast, hard punching southpaw and Margarito, while not having an effective outside game, does like going toe to toe like Williams does. Then with the history Sergio and Margarito have, you know leather's gonna be flying and some great sparring sessions in the making. Hopefully someone will get this on video.
