Charles Martin: I Want To Be Like The LeBron James of Boxing!

The Armory in Minneapolis - Former heavyweight world champion Charles Martin (27-2-1, 23 KOs) delivered a TKO victory over Daniel Martz (18-7-1, 15 KOs) in the fourth-round of their heavyweight attraction.
 
Martin used his southpaw stance to land strong left hands early on Martz and causing his right eye to swell in round two. Martz tried to tie up Martin, and eventually had some success on offense landing several clean shots that got Martin's attention, even if they didn't hurt him.
 
"At one point I wasn't relaxed like I should have been," said Martin. "He threw a good flurry on me in the second round and that woke me up. I was a little stiff, but as we got going I knew I could go through him."

"I definitely came to fight and I was trying to win," said Martz. "I started to take some hard shots and they added up. He definitely hits hard."
 
In round four Martin clipped Martz in the opening moments, forcing him to retreat before Martin followed up with a body shot that put his opponent on the canvas. Martz got up and continued to try to survive and hold, but a strong combination punctuated by another punishing shot put Martz on the mat again and forced referee Celestino Ruiz to halt the bout 2:03 into the round.
 
"I told my team that I wanted to stop him with a body shot, so I was focused on that and happy to get it done," said Martin.

"I just want to keep learning and become a complete fighter. I want to be able to dig to the body and fight on the inside and learn everything technical that I can. I want to be like the LeBron James of boxing, in that I'm a total student of the sport."

"He threw some good shots to the body and that's kind of what wore me out," said Martz. "I'll get in the gym and get better and be back soon"

Charles Martin is a good reason why fighters should sign with Al Haymon, as if he was with another other boxing outfit, he'd already be thrown in the trash by now. If he still wants to be the best (what…

Would that mean that Lebron can't dribble with his other hand? Or would that mean that Lebron takes Granny shots at the free throw line? The guy isn't good enough to win a Tough Man contest with 16 oz gloves…
