Roman Martinez Hopes To Land The Adrien Broner Fight

By Rey Colon

Last Saturday night in Puerto Rico, Roman "Rocky" Martinez (25-1-1, 15 KOs) returned to his triumphant ways after a year of being idle. He knocked out Daniel Attah of Nigeria, and now wants to recover the WBO junior lightweight title which he lost in his only defeat, against Ricky Burns, who recently vacated the crown to move up in weight. Martinez is hoping WBO President Francisco Valcarcel orders a fight for the vacant crown between himself and the number one contender, Adrien Broner.

"As I told Paco, I am the number three ranked contender and I have the option of fighting with Broner, which is going to be for the vacant title. I comfortable at 130 and within a year I could move up to lightweight," Martinez said.

The fact is, Ponce was not exactly a defensive wizard and he beat Broner. Broner might be the favorite to win but Rocky has a solid chance of a mild upset.

Personally, I would love to see Martinez knock Broner out. Not sure if it will happen but Martinez will back Broner up and land punishing blows....would be nice to see someone leave Broner on his back for the count. What…
