Beltran vs. Usmanee in Play, Rocky Martinez is Out

By Miguel Rivera

There were rumors of this for weeks, but it now appears Roman "Rocky" Martinez is officially removed, although no reason has been provided as of yet, from next Saturday's HBO Pay-Per-View fight against Raymundo Beltran. The fight was booked to be a part of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Martinez is now likely going to be replaced by Canadian boxer Arash Usmanee, according to Carlos Narvaez.

Martínez and Beltran were going to battle for the NABO lightweight crown. The NABO is a subsidiary of the World Boxing Organization (WBO). There is no official word if the belt will still be on the line with Usmanee. Beltran has a record of 28-6-1 and 17 knockouts. while Usmanee has a record is 20-1-1 and 10 KOs.

Wonder why Martinez was scratched ?? Usmanee is solid mayne but he's a S.Feather and Beltran is big for LW should still be good if both are prepared, Usmanee got speed/workrate.

[QUOTE=Loque-san;14398352]Usmanee is a good replacement. He's better than Rocky Martinez actually.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=PBP;14399158]I may be in the minority but this is actually an equal or better fight[/QUOTE] On one week notice though? Hopefully Usmanee's been staying in the gym.
