By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Promoter Lou DiBella, who guides the career of WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs), states that his fighter will not face WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24KOs) in his next return fight. Martinez last fought in April and suffered several injuries during the decision win over Martin Murray. Martinez will likely not return until 2014 and DiBella says he won't put his fighter in the ring, after such a long layoff, with Golovkin.

"Sergio will be out for at least a year. You saw his last fight, he won it on guts and will and balls alone. He had no knee, he had no hand, and I'm not sending a champion who is 38-years-old - after a year plus layoff - into a ring with this guy. I'm not saying they will never fight. I'm not speaking for Sergio, who is a grown as man and controls his own career. The successor to Sergio Martiknez has already been determined and the next great middleweight is Triple G," DiBella said.

[QUOTE=FeFist]Then relinquish the belt. I don't really understand the idea of referring to yourself as champion and not fighting the best in the division.

I dont blame them if they dont put Martinez in an unification-fight after a long layoff and injury rehabilitation. You just cant blame them! I think Martinez career is pretty much over anyway. One or two more fights, thats it. Golovkin should fight one of the younger guys, Quillin, Chavez Jr. or ...

Props to DiBella for giving his due to GGG and showing respect to him. It took him time but he did it eventually.

comment by BafanaBafana, on 07-01-2013
[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless]People seem to want Golovkin to fight Martinez just for the sake of him getting Martinez and to jack off over Golovkin becoming lineal champ. I rather watch Martinez at 90-100% vs Golovkin and get good fight instead of Martinez at 60% vs Golovkin and get a massacre. If w...

He probably wants to wait for a possible Chavez rematch (they could sell it on that last round alone) or even a Canelo fight at a catch weight. Canelo has expressed interest in fighting Martinez. Dibella just doing his job as a promoter.
