Middleweight Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28KOs) is ready to fight - if Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) is willing to face him. There have been rumblings that Mayweather "would consider" a possible fight with Martinez at some point in the future, but the weight and the terms are unknown.

During a few recent interviews on, Martinez's promoter Lou DiBella threw out the possibility of a catch-weight meeting at 150-pounds. Martinez made 157 for his last fight and Mayweather moves up to 154 for a May 5th meeting with Miguel Cotto. Martinez is first hoping to finalize a fight with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for September.

"My big dream is to become the best pound for pound fighter. It's like the ultimate goal for me. At this moment, for me, the best out there is Mayweather. But once I fight him, and beat him, I'll be satisfied. For me personally, a fight against Floyd would be the biggest and most difficult of my career," Martinez said.

Martinez and Floyd at 154 would be amazing...that is THE fight that needs to happen. Pac can fight JMM for a 4th time or something....maybe fight Ortiz.

i dont think i coulve said it better. i still have hope for that fight tho. tho both r two of my favorites, i want to see it so people who are fooled by the hype will really see that manny is not in the same league with floyd. his fights with marquez demonstrates this very easily. he has problems...

[QUOTE=FalconPunch]Does anyone think that Cotto could actually beat Floyd?[/QUOTE] Hardly anyone thinks that and that dates back to when they both fought at 140 and under Top Rank. Hell, Bob wouldn't even allow it to happen even then. Nothing has changed now other than Cotto is not fightin...

The irony of it all is that these same pac-tards said Mayweather would NEVER fight Mosley... and just as soon as Floyd did these pac-tards cried for months about how "old" Mosley was. Then cheered at how great Pac was for fighting Mosley a year AFTER Floyd did.... Now we have pac-tards crying ...
