Sergio Martinez's Return Likely Pushed Back To September

By Rick Reeno

Due to a variety of issues, the return of middleweight king Sergio Martinez (47-2-2, 26KOs) is likely being pushed back to an HBO televised date in the month of September. Martinez is arriving later this week to MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where the boxer will join HBO Latino's broadcast team to call this Saturday's Erik Morales-Marcos Maidana pay-per-view. Additionally, Martinez will take part in several functions to speak out against violence and domestic abuse.

Martinez should Just fight Cintron in the mean time and try and Avenge that Draw. I don't see anything wrong with that besides the fact that he won't get paid much.
