Let's see... Martinez (currently injured) has two fights this year one being a dream return fight at home (first in 10yrs) in front of 55,000 countryman and the other in late 2013.
Martinez will likely do the following:
1) April 27, 2013: Martinez v. Murray (Argentina return)
2) Sept. 14, 2013: Martinez Chavez Jr. II (HBO PPV)
I take it you are complaining at his choice for the first fight since the Chavez II is a big money fight. That being said you must have forgotten that the WBC no longer accepts unification fights. Thus, if Martinez were to fight a titleholder for his April 27 fight he would likely give the WBC an excuse to strip him... AGAIN. Unlike you, Martinez isn't an idiot. He will keep his WBC title and defend it against Chavez on Sept. 14. The Martinez/Chavez/WBC drama will continue as hype for the next fight. Maybe we don't care about title belts but the mass of casual fans who watch and pay for these fights do.
