Meh, this fight is not a PPV fight. They can put it on PPV but it won't sell well. Neither guy has a fans base.
But, it is about money. Martinez is a MW, he might not want to struggle to make 154 for the likes of Kirkland. Because, the reward(money) isn't enticing enough to take risk(making weight).
Then again since Lou knows that neither Martinez or Kirkland can sell out anything. The one selling point they do have is the MW title. You can sell fighting for a championship better than fighting for a none title. He was willing to do a catch-weight of 155 against Angulo. Just to sell it to the public as a title fight. Similar thing can happen with Kirkland.

That's a pretty stupid logic since Martinez would be much weaker, much much weaker at 150 than he would be at 154. But, you keep thinking that Kirkland has a better chance against a still pretty Martinez at 154 than what Pac would have against a possibly drained Martinez at 150.

This is true too.
