Martinez moving up to super middle, where most guys are around 178 on fight night, would be giving up much less of an advantage than Pac and Floyd would be giving up by fighting Sergio. As I pointed out in my earlier post, it would be less outrageous for Sergio to fight Hopkins than Pac to fight Sergio.
If Martinez was fighting at 154, he would not
be 170 on fight night.
Why are guys using this inflated Sergio as the benchmark?
