Sergio Martinez basks in the glow of his latest victory.
Sergio Martinez is a beast of a champion. He won titles at junior middleweight before vacating to face the likes of Paul Williams and Kelly Pavlik at middleweight and win more world titles.
Now, Mayweather-Martinez may be a fight the fans want due to Mayweather having two fights at junior middleweight—a place where both fighters can certainly meet with little difficulty—but is it lucrative?
Martinez hasn't been able to attract the level of attention other Latin stars command such as the younger but less athletically talented Canelo and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Mayweather, at age 36, may not be willing to take a young man's risk against a bigger foe when he's almost a senior citizen in boxing years.
One thing's for sure, if Mayweather does meet the taller, longer-limbed, speedy Argentina-born fighter, it'll be the toughest fight he's been in and one that could define or potentially end his career.
