IN OTHER NEWS - Former two-time world welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (39-6, 30 KOs) would like to let former world middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, that if he were to come back, it should be against him.

After recent reports that Martinez will end his retirement, Cintron is adamant that a rematch of the two world champions is inevitable.

On February 14, 2009, Cintron and Martinez fought to a disputed draw in Sunrise, Florida, and Cintron believes now is the time for the two to settle the score.

"I see that he is coming back, and I want the opportunity to face him.  We have some unfinished business from our fight in 2009, and this is the time to do it.  There were various opinions on that fight. If the fight needs to be in Spain, Argentina or wherever, my passport is up-to-date, and I am willing to travel," said Cintron

"This is a no brainer fight for the promoters, but it is up to Sergio.  I am sure he would like to avenge the draw, so let's make it happen."

Said Marshall Kauffman of King's Promotions, "This would be a great fight.  It's two former world champions looking for that one last shot at something significant.  The winner would have that. I will reach out to his representatives, and try to make this fight happen."

That fight was horrible. Cintron got ko'd anr outboxed all in the same fight. Ref was terrible for waving it off and back on again.

'There were various opinions on that fight'. Mainly in how many different ways Martinez won yet still got denied the W. A denied TKO because Cintron claimed it was head/elbow (can't remember which) when the replay clearly showed it to…
