One of the great Argentine and Latin American representatives in the last 20 years, former two division world champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez, has already scheduled a date for his next fight.

The 46-year-old veteran will continue his comeback. 

Martinez is still hoping to secure a crack at the WBA middleweight title.

At the moment, Martinez is ranked at number three by the World Boxing Association. The WBA "regular" champion is Erislandy Lara, while Ryota Murata holds the WBA's 'super' title at the weight and is scheduled to face IBF champion Gennadiy Golovkin in late December in a unification clash.

Martinez is now planning to start his campaign of 2022 with an early start.

"I will fight again on January 27, at the Wizink Center in Madrid, Spain," said Martinez, who did not reveal who will be his adversary in the Spanish capital.

Martinez returned to the ring last August, at 45-years-old, after being away from the ring since suffering a knockout loss to Miguel Cotto in 2014.

The comeback was delayed for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since making his return to the ring, Martinez defeated Spanish boxer Miguel Fandino by knockout in seven rounds in Spain. After that return, the Argentine made two more fights where he came away with his hand raised - after defeating Jussi Koivula by TKO in nine rounds and this past September he beat British boxer Brian Rose on points.

Martinez is hoping to force a mandatory fight with one of the two WBA champions. If he continues to win, he could very well find himself in a final eliminator in the next twelve months.
