Sergio Martinez erased all doubts about who the best middleweight in the world was last September when he dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in lopsided fashion.
For the 38-year-old Argentine, the work came all too easy for 11.5 rounds before a punch out of the blue deposited him on the mat and almost ended his night.
But a win is a win, and Martinez now moves to the task of once again defending his crown against an undefeated but little known fighter outside of Europe, Martin Murray.
Murray (25-0-1, 11 KO) is known as a boxer and not much of a puncher, but he has a tricky style that can be difficult to solve. And Martinez has struggled in the past with European-style fighters.
It will be tougher work than many probably expect, but here is Martinez's blueprint for taking down Murray.
