Sergio Martinez vs. Martin Murray: Head-to-Toe Breakdown for Both Fighters
google images

Saturday night, Sergio Martinez defends his middleweight belt against English fighter Martin Murray on HBO in Martinez' home country of Argentina. It's Sergio's first fight since his victory over Julio "Puff, Puff, Give" Chavez last September.

Martinez dominated Chavez for nearly every second until Chavez finally caught an exhausted Martinez and nearly stopped him in that incredible 12th round. Martinez suffered an injured knee that required surgery and some rehabilitation. This is his first fight in Argentina in over 11 years.

For Martin Murray, this is by far the biggest fight of his career and his first test against an elite opponent. He is a massive underdog fighting in the champion's homeland. He has only fought outside of England one other time, when he traveled to Germany to take on Felix Sturm in a fight that ended in a draw.

Here we take a look and analyze the upcoming fight between the heavily favored champion and the unheralded challenger.
