Lol those states always go for Mexican fighters so it still wouldnt have been fair Burgos did win the fight but you can't take nothing away from Martinez who took all those body punches and never stop coming it was a great fight and I'm sure there will be a rematch

I think Burgos could have got Martinez out of there if he really wanted to, playing it too safe in the end got em jipped. Nothing against Martinez the champ, he fought hard and is a cool respectable dude. Lets get that rematch in May.

martinez, verdejo

why Martinez should be ashamed, he wasn't the judge? Now on Verdejo very unusual from top rank using an opponent with record under 500, he was a perfect opponent for Verdejo to make a statement????? Wow what kind of statement he made.....
