Roman Martinez Could Be Heading To Top Rank's Stable

By Jhonny Gonzalez

According to overseas reports, the former WBO champion at 130 pounds, Roman 'Rocky' Martinez, is going to sign a promotional pact with Top Rank, which is going to bring life to his flagging career. Martinez's contract recently expired with Puerto Rico Best Boxing, but the two sides have been debating over how much time is actually remaining on their agreement because Martinez was sidelined earlier this year with an injury. Peter Rivera, vice president of Puerto Rico Best Boxing, is bringing Top Rank into the fold as a co-promoter to resign the young contender.

Martinez, with a 24-1-1, 15 knockouts record, has been inactive since losing the WBO super featherweight crown last September to Ricky Burns in Glasgow, Scotland.

Good news hopefully Arum puts Martinez on the undercard for Cotto Margarito.

Looks like Flomo Queen Wess cant go a minute without thinking about the object of his passion, Pac.

Waiting for Bob Arum to say Roman's nearly ready to fight Pac at a catchweight.... Anyone but Mayweather Bob... anyone but Mayweather... At least the newly Top Rank signed Cintron lost his fight or else we might have seen Pac…

About time he signs with someone decent Top Rank will put him on pay per view undercards it will be cool to see him fight I thought he was sign with Frank Warren because he was always fighting in Europe.
