Sergio is always going to be one of these guys that people want and expect more from, whether it be from envy, hate or the acknowledgment of his greatness. If he dominates an experienced boxer with 35 wins and no losses at the sake of missing an opportunity to fight a greener, undefeated guy with 15 wins and no losses, who has a little hype behind them, Sergio is "ducking" this other guy. If he beats up on the greener, hyped guy then he just beat up on a green "hype job" who wasn't ready to begin with.
It is the same story with guys that are too good for their own good. You are damned if you do and damned if you don't.
Nah, all he has to do is keep fighting undefeated great's like Martin Murray.
