Sammy Vasquez: I'm Ready For All of The Guys at The Top

Los Angeles, CA - Before a crowd of 12,052 at STAPLES Center in downtown Los Angeles, welterweight, "Sergeant" Sammy Vasquez of Monessen, Pennsylvania improved to (21-0, 15 KOs) with a sixth round stoppage of Aron Martinez, (20-5, 4 KOs) of Michoacan, Mexico.
 
Peppering Martinez with a piston like jab, Vasquez controlled the action using his full skillset to score points at will against the slower Martinez. Staying the aggressor through round four and five, Vasquez continued to beat Martinez to the punch using a battering right hook.
 
The bout ended abruptly as Martinez was not able to continue following the sixth round due to a left elbow injury.

Said Vasquez, "Of course I won the fight, but Martinez is a tough competitor, a tough Mexican fighter. I tried to mix it up with him a little bit, but there was no sense in me trying to do that. I could have easily outboxed him, which I started to do, but I wanted more. I was just starting to warm up.
 
"A victory feels good of course, but I wanted more. I wanted to go 12 rounds, if it would have lasted that long. I wanted a very decisive win. Unfortunately, he got hurt, but every fight is a learning experience for me.
 
"It's on to the next chapter and I'm ready for all of the guys at the top. Eventually, I'm going to get them."
 
A disappointed Martinez stated, "I hurt my elbow. I couldn't throw my jab. I started to feel it in the third round. The doctor stopped it.
 
"I was doing okay. Not my best. I tried, but once I hurt my elbow, I knew it was going to be tough to continue."

Vasquez was impressive this past weekend, Martinez took away from Vasquez's victory with his "supposed" elbow injury. Personally Martinez looked like from the very beginning that he was outclassed and fought like a guy that knew he was in there…

This kid can fight. As for him being ready for the top guys in the division. Watching this past night and listening to Thurman talking sh1t I was thinking, "this kid would box circles around Thurman's bum ass."

[QUOTE=piojo del norte;16414215]He should work on his power, everything else looks nice. Welterweight is full of heavy hitters with exception of a few like timmy bradley.[/QUOTE] His defense needs a lot of work too. Martinez offered little so we didn't…
