New York, NY- Next Saturday, the #1 middleweight and top three pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (47-2-2, 26KO's) will be putting his WBC Middleweight Diamond belt and Ring Championship on the line against undefeated European Champion "Dazzling" Darren Barker (23-0, 14KO's) at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The show, entitled "Noche de 'Maravilla': Martinez vs. Barker", is being presented by DiBella Entertainment, in association with Matchroom Sport, and Caesars Atlantic City, and is sponsored by Corona.

With the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 just passing, Martinez made it clear to his promoter, Lou DiBella, founder and President of DiBella Entertainment, that he wanted to do something to honor the fallen heros of that tragic day.

"Sergio told me that he wanted to do something to honor the heros of 9/11," said DiBella. "We tossed around a few ideas with him, and ultimately Sergio decided that he wanted to offer discounted tickets to all members of the armed forces, both active and veterans, and all members of any first-respond units: policemen, firemen, EMT workers. It is Sergio's way of giving back, and in honoring the anniversary of 9/11."

"It would be my pleasure and honor to have all the Police, Fire,Veterans, and all servicemen and women, who put themselves in harm's way, join me and my team on October 1st, in Atlantic City, at Boardwalk Hall. Living here in this country has made me sensitive to the significance of what happened on that tragic day. I promise to put on great show and I dedicate this victory to all of you who help protect us everyday," said the champion Martinez.

DiBella Entertainment is currently offering $100 tickets for $65 and $50 seats for only $35. The discounted tickets can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, at any Ticketmaster retail outlet, or in person at the Boardwalk Hall box office.

That's a good gesture, but I just can't get over how disappointed I am at Martinez for fighting this bum.

Is it unethical to use the discount code eventhough i'm not associated with the Army, NYPD, or FDNY?
