  • I am a huge Martinez fan and fully support letting a fighter make his own decisions about his career. Having said this though I would like to add that as a former fighter whom now struggles with Pugilist Dementia myself, I would hope he considers his potential future. I didn’t start struggling until eight years after my last fight. Be careful champ!

    • Sorry to hear about that Adam. I am wondering why he’s making this comeback. I see he’s fighting guys who pose very little threat to hurt him let alone win. But I wonder what is the point? Sergio stands no chance against the divisions elite fighters and there’s a strong possibility that he’ll get injured again maybe even worse this time around. Im a Martinez fan but I hope he retires.
