It's too soon for Canelo to talk Martinez..he needs to roll thru some names at 154 first...Kirkland, Angulo, Vanes, Rosado...etc...
Martinez opens Canelo up and Vargas' him ala' Tito..
I partially agree.
Every fighter needs to go down the line of boxers before takin' on Championships. At least, that's what they thought about a 19yr-old Tyson.
The difference is, the boy that fought Jose Cotto bakk then, is not the same man that fought Lopez, but you have to expect that in any competitive sport such as boxing that in order for athletes to grow, they have to learn from their past experiences. Growth = experience + determination. It's not rokket science. And I'm convinced that this principle also applies to Martinez. I'm sure my man has learnt a lot from his past experiences as well and please don't get it twisted, I respect the champ, but even lions grow old.
I don't know but recently, Canelo's confidence seems to have sp1ked bIG time since his last few fights. And like a young Tyson, i think he's just starting to realize his true power and potential. If any boxer seems to have acquired Robert duran's 'hands of stone', it's Canelo. And if all of that is true, why hold bakk the possbile legacy of a red headed Mexican with a '19yr-old Tyson KO syndrome' from takin' it's course?
