Sergio Martinez To Evaluate Knee Before Return

A few days ago, former two division world champion Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KOs) announced that he planned to continue his career. At 39-years-old, some wondered if Martinez would ever fight again after suffering a one-sided stoppage defeat to Miguel Cotto in June.

During the fight with Cotto, it appeared that Martinez was troubled by his knees. Last April, Martinez seriously injured his right knee during his decision win over Martin Murray. After two surgeries and rehabbing for several months, Martinez was forced to be very careful in his camp as he prepared for Cotto. Martinez avoided any exercises that would place his right knee at risk to get reinjured.

Martinez has already had one specialist evaluate his knee and now he plans to get a second opinion from another doctor in New York. He wants to ensure that his leg is capable of underdoing a tough training camp for a planned return.

"I want to see how well my knee is. I'll do the necessary studies to see how I am. I hope to recover the leg work that led me to the top," Martinez said.

Sergio has to accept he is no longer the bee's knees.

I'm a big fan of Martinez the guy had his moment's in this sport. But I would like to see him hang up his gloves and just retire before he gets seriously hurt.

It's time for the champ to call it a day. His knees are no where near the level that they need to be for him to sustain in the types of fights that he wants to fight in.

I've wanted martinez to retire since the chavez fight. He's just never been the same.

sergio is done! he should get his last big payday by giving chavez jr a rematch and call it quits!!! After all jr is a punching bag he will not have to run to chase him, nobody is going to make him the kind of $ that a rematch vs jr. will!!! martinez vs Chavez jr, at staples i see a complete sale...
