Roman Martinez Hopes To Land The Adrien Broner Fight

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.

[QUOTE=Tomasio]Rocky does have heart & brings it on, but he is too robotic & predictable & his defense is practically nonexistent for a quick fighter like Broner.. [/QUOTE] But power and will often overcome a lot and I see Martinez hurting Broner' and Broner running from him and trying to box but...

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 an arrogant racist rick Broner is, with the comments he made the other day.

[QUOTE=lopez36]'within a year i can move up to lightweight' on other words "once rios leaves i'll move up" if he fights broner i'm going for martinez,i think broner will try to outbox him which it seems that it's pretty easy against martinez,but i would go for martinez here[/QUOTE]...
