Sergio Martinez Says Return Could Be Pushed To August

By Nicholas Samuilov, notifight.com

The WBC's emeritus middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martínez (47-2-2, 26 KOs), says his comeback is possibly not going to happen on July 9 as previously reported. He says there are discussions about pushing the date back to the first or second week of August on HBO. The opponent is not official. Martinez was provided with one name so far, Peter Manfredo Jr., but says the opponent could change three or four times before the August date.

"It's not official, but I already know that I may not fight on July 9, and my fight may go to August. It would be in the first or second week of August," said Martinez to BoxingScene.com's Carlos Irusta. "In theory, I have a opponent. But this can change three or four times. To date, I was told it would be Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-6, 20 KOs). No venue has been set, but I imagine that it would take place in the United States."

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;10271121]And he says Pacquiao only fights "No-Hopers". Oh the irony.[/QUOTE] Nobody of significance wants to fight him. Pacquiao has choices while Martinez doesn't.

[QUOTE=J Dubb II 330;10271743]Oh you forgot to mention lineal champ Pavlik. And we all know the Cintron draw was bogus so no need to bring that up, and Dzinziruk I believe was the number 1 contender, Pirog was not available,…
