  • Great fight hopefully see a rematch near future two knock-down may a different for the winner Martinez

  • Martinez was too strong for Angelino that was the difference Martinez strength.

    Martinez needs to change his style, he wont last to long

  • Hard to overcome two (2) knockdowns, but Cordova gave it a heck of a try. A close fight, but all that matters is Martinez is going home with his belt.

  • I thought Cordova should have gotten a draw at least, he took over the fight with his boxing skills. Martinez knocked him down but has terrible boxing skills and if Cordova would have worked the body a little more he could’ve put him away. Martinez got a hometown decision, boxing in Vegas sucks.!!
