  • VERY impressed by Martinez. Never saw the young man fight. Will love to see him fight again. Great skills!

    • Ive watched him and WBA title holder Artem Dalakian. Thats a unification fight if ever there was one.

  • I don’t know if he’ll get that type of attention outside of the ring, but inside of it – Martinez MIGHT just be something special.
