Default What If Sergio Martinez Loses His Next Fight, Should He Retire From Boxing?

martinez underwent knee surgery and is reported to fight again in april 2013. it will be held in his native argentina and most likely the opponent will be england's martin murray (24-0-1, 10 KOs), whose draw came in a world title bout against then-middleweight titleholder felix sturm in december 2011.

martinez is widely considered fourth-best p4p fighter in the world, lucrative showdowns with mayweather, canelo or cotto or a rematch with chavez, jr. are just around the corner, but golovkin might be the biggest risk for martinez. coming from major surgery and then consistently compete at the elite level does have it's toll, especially at his age where many observers says is within the twilight years of a boxers' career.

hypothetically speaking, what if martinez lost the next bout, let's say by a close decision, all those lucrative fights may forever be out of reach. should martinez instead hand up his gloves and retire from the sport?

your thoughts?

GGG is not what eveyone is thinking, his defense is horendus and he cant punch with his lead foot planted, Martinez would UD him seriously lop sided, right Now Martinez is still fighting like a young man, I have yet to see anyone bounce around the ring like him unless they are at straw weight or so. Should he retire if he loses, yea why not. He has a pretty good promotional business going, and am sure he has solid investments.

your thoughts?
My thoughts are that I wouldn'tpresume to advise a world champion, or indeed anyone I don't know very well, as to what he should do. It would be colossal chutzpah and a true sign of idiocy..
