Default Martinez says he would beat Pacquiao at any weight, took home $900 in Margarito fight

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJKWU...991&playnext=4

If you start at video one he does mention feeling he is just as good as Mayweather and much better than Pacquiao.

Also, he says he took home $900 dollars for the Margarito fight, although he later found out the purse for the fight was 24,100.

If you speak spanish it is a very interesting interview.

First time fighting professionally out of Argentina, Margarita wasn't highly regarded and he was undefeated. But he didn't know what the purse was but eventually came home with $900. He was just a working class kid who got worked by some ****ty managers.

His purse wasnt 24K

I think Quintana's purse was 25K and he opened up a PPV that sold 1.5 mil buys

At their level, a grand isnt far off

You could be right, I can't verify the purse information. That is what he claimed though. And their fight was the co-feature though non televised.

In the broadcast of the Margarito fight, one of the commentators mentioned that Bob Arum called Martinez the best prospect coming out of Argentina. Maybe Arum wanted to sign him at the time, hence the big purse. Obviously it didn't work out.
