Sergio Martinez Will Take His Time To Determine Future
Following the knockout loss to Miguel Cotto, Sergio “Maravilla” Martínez is sensibly taking a break from boxing and will take his time to define his future.
Nevertheless, Sampson Lewkowicz, said that he’s sure that the former champion will not retire.
“After such great victories, he surely would love to have a fight to say goodbye to his fans," Lewkowicz suggested.
“If he wants to continue, it'd be to have another fight in Argentina. But the decision is only his. Sergio is a very smart man. He's highly articulate and intelligent, so he'll have no problem in building a career after boxing."
Lewkowicz also said that Martinez is finishing his second book. In 2012 he published “Corazon de Rey”.
Martinez took punishment in the loss to Cotto, going down three times in the first round.
“Since he went down the first time, he climbed back up and fought on for eight more rounds, but he was hurt. He never recovered, but he fought so bravely with his heart” Lewkowicz proudly stressed, adding:
“Sergio had prepared for 15 rounds, and anyone who knows him understands he would rather die in the ring before giving up. I understand that Pablo Sarmiento made the right decision to stop the fight. Sergio had not won a round and there was no need to receive more punishment."

[QUOTE=Renal Colic;14657578]I don't see this ending well. He declined a great deal between the Chavez and Murray, even more so between the latter and the Cotto fight. What the hell is he going to be like in his next fight…Comment by SUBZER0ED on 06-13-2014
