Promoter Ricky Hatton agrees with WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs), who believes he is the only fighter capable of beating Floyd Mayweather Jr. [among the realistic possibilities]. While he praises the skill of Martinez, Hatton doesn't expect him to make it to Mayweather. One of Hatton's best fighters, WBA interim-champion Martin Murray (25-0-1, 11KOs), will challenge Martinez on Apri 27th in Argentina. Hatton is confident his fighter will send the 37-year-old Martinez into retirement.
"Martinez is the second pound for pound boxer in the world today and the only one capable, in my opinion, because of his style, to beat Mayweather - but Martin, in 2013, will let him know that his time in boxing is ending," Hatton said.
