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.
How does a middleweight mimic the actions of a midget?
This is all wrong for margarito, he needs to fight someone around pac size, someone like zab judah would be a better choice.
