Sergio Martinez To Return on December 5, Aims To Stay Active

Former two division world champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez will have the second fight of his comeback on December 5.

Martinez returned to the ring on August 21, by stopping overmatched José Miguel Fandino in Torrelavega.

The former champ intends to continue accumulating rounds before aspiring to a higher goal.

Based off his comeback win, the 45-year-old Martinez secure a number six ranking in the WBA's top ten in the middleweight division.

Martinez's goal is to have a few more stay busy fights to secure a clash with WBA "regular" middleweight champion Ryota Murata of Japan.

The location and opponent for Martinez's next fight has yet to be finalized, but his promotional company, Maravillabox Promotions, will put the details together.

Martinez's next fight will take place at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds, over the ten round distance.

The fight back in August was the first contest for Martinez since June of 2014 - when he was stopped by Miguel Cotto at Madison Square Garden in New York City. As a result Martinez lost the WBC middleweight title.

Not long after that fight, Martinez retired from the sport due to nagging issues with knee injuries. He was barely able to stay on his feet against Cotto, after getting dropped in the first round.

While he wore a knee brace in his comeback fight, Martinez states that his knee issues are long resolved with the brace being worn as a precaution.
