Sergio has early success but because of he does the same shit over and over Floyd will easily figure him out and then break him down.

I'm glad more and more Flomos are converting to PRO-CATCHWEIGHT.

Martinez is bigger, stronger, more powerful, more energetic, more relentless than the 2010 SSM, and if he connects he'll get the same result or better, and get further with the following stoppage attempt as well. It is very short-sighted to rule a KO out on the evidence of both mens' recent fights.
Mosely stunned Floyd, its really stupid to think that just because a fighter is stunned and has only been knocked down once (Zab Judah) he can be K.O'd?

Mayweather is NOT Paul Williams his defense is top 3 ALL time, he will NOT get caught with Martinez big shots.

The chance of Martinez K.O'ing Floyd are remote, it is more likely he hurts Floyd so bad he is able to impose his will on Floyd but the K.O is NOT going to happen.

Floyd's fundamentals are so much better than Martinez'. Martinez would miss all night, get off balance repeatedly, and Floyd would counter, counter, counter.

Toughest fight of Floyds career. I'd pick Sergio by decision.

Of course he can be KO'd. Any fighter can be KO'd if they get caught by the right punch from the right fighter. That's just human physiology my friend, and Floyd is a human being, just like Roberto Duran was a human who had a granite chin for 99% of his career, but got sparked one time by a much bigger, more murderous puncher in Thomas Hearns. This logic is not hard to follow tbh.

I don't think Mayweather will get caught by Martinez's big shot either, I expect Mayweather to win, but I didn't expect Mosley to land big shots on Mayweather either, and he did, so it's obviously not outwith the realms of possibility that Martinez could catch Floyd flush in the midst of an exchange.

The KO is eminently possible. Martinez is bigger and more powerful than anyone Floyd has fought before, and we have seen that Floyd can be hurt by single shots before from lesser punchers such as Demarcus Corley.

It's simple logic, that's all.

How many times do you think he can land that same exact lucky punch on Williams in a 3rd fight

Without getting into too much detail as I am feeling lazy right now: Mayweather's straight right hand would be the major difference in the bout. Martinez is open for it, and with the way he keeps his hands, he'll get hit and hit often.

If Martinez can keep that jab pumping and effective, he has a shot. He needs to keep Mayweather off balance and out of countering range. A tall order in my view given Mayweather's footwork and ring IQ.

I got Mayweather winning a UD in a competitive fight. (8-4 or 7-5 type of fight) A more dangerous fight than Pacquiao in my opinion. I hope it happens.
