The only reason people want that fight so bad is because Martinez would physically destroy Floyd due to the difference in size. You need to understand weight divisions are there for a reason. Even when you catchweight somebody, as long as they have professional nutritionists behind them they can rehydrate to their normal fight-weights. Martinez would be HUGE compared to Floyd even at 154. At 160 it would be even more glaring.
It would be an interesting fight, but you can't knock Floyd for avoiding a fight with Martinez. I mean get real dude. People need to just realize that Floyd's only real tests are fights people don't even want to see because they aren't big enough "names" (which further proves that all the new boxing fans are fickle twats that totally disrespect the sport with their favoritism towards certain fighters, and bias' against others)
Marquez going up to fight Mayweather, and just after moving up to 135, is the same as Mayweather moving up to fight Martinez. Only difference is that Mayweather doesn't have the balls.
