"Vasquez said he's going to stop me and prove himself, but everybody says things before the fight. He's going to start boxing once he feels my power. Although I don't have the knockouts on my record I do have the power and he's going to feel it.

"I was always training before this run of success started even when I was off for fourteen months before the Robert Guerrero fight.
 
"I think Guerrero underestimated me, I thought I won the fight but the judges had it differently.

"Against Devon Alexander, I was the bigger guy. I've been fighting at 147 my whole life going back to when I was an amateur. He couldn't hurt me and couldn't deal with my pressure. I learned from the Guerrero to close the show like I did against Alexander.
 
"This is my third southpaw in a row but I trained with my brother for many years who's a southpaw. We sparred for years together and it was always about learning how to fight a southpaw. It might be weird to fight an orthodox fighter now."

This will be a good one. 3rd southpaw in a row for Martinez.

Comment by richardt on 01-13-2016

Sammy has been stepping up comp time and again and is a guy who is willing to take a risk. I like him in general but on top of that how he has stepped up each time.
