Hatton: Martinez Can Beat Mayweather, But Not Murray

By Jhonny Gonzalez

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.

[QUOTE=Brassangel;12851295][B]Floyd did a great job of avoiding Pac until it was too late[/B], and he'll do the same to Sergio. Floyd is the Obama of boxing: always misdirecting, stalling, and deflecting the points that matter to look better at all…

[QUOTE=Deevel916;12850672]Floyd came out a while back and stated that he is willing to fight anyone from 154 on down. Why are his fanboys *****ing and moaning about something that Floyd himself said he's willing to do.[/QUOTE] Floyd said he would…

[QUOTE=RapidFire26;12853373]Yes I know that, but Sergio isn't just some random guy tweeting Floyd. I never said Sergio has done everything, but he has offered an 80-20 split as well as a catch weight as low as 150 publicly. I can't…
