Sergio Martinez: I Promise To Knock Martin Murray Out!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBC middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (50-2, 28KOs) has promised a knockout victory on April 27th when he faces undefeated Martin Murray (25-0-1, 11KOs), the WBA's interim-champion, at Club Atletico Velez Sarsfield in Argentina. Martinez returns to Argentina, as a star and a champion, after having his last fight in the country in 2002.

"I left [Argentina] with two suitcases and the way I'm coming back is amazing. It's a kid's dream. The is the sweetest moment of my life. I'm coming back to give everything on the show," Martinez said.

In an earlier interview, Martinez made a prediction of a knockout victory inside of eight rounds, but now he promises to leave the ring that night with knockout victory by any means possible. He doesn't underestimate Murray's abilities as a fighter. The only blemish on Murray's record was a controversial draw to former champion Felix Sturm.

"Murray is a great fighter, a world champion, and you have to respect him. But on April 27th I promise to defend my world title and win by way of a clear knockout," Martinez said.

This is a weak fight for someone claiming to be avoided by fighters. Williams and Pavlik were very good wins for Sergio. Even Dzinziruk then wasn't too bad, given he was Top 10 at 154. Barker was terrible, considering Pirog…
