Well if there was controversy in the first fight, certainly there is no doubt about the winner in the second one! Why did the referee even bother to count? Devastating KO.
Matt fully agree with your comment here. As you are aware of this fight sealed the faith of both boxers. Sergio’s career reached stardom but Paul’s one went to the drain.
I’m surprised because you are the first I know you do so much research in this sport. A real fan!!!
Thank you! I like the older fights, I was watching the sport in my teens (1995-2000) and I had a renaissance last year :)
Hey, I also forgot to mention that Martinez comes from Argentina, your original country :) Martinez looked very happy in the interview. Poor Williams looked awful in the interview, what could he say? He never saw this awkward punch.
Matt, YES he was another excellent boxer from Argentina. He decided to go for retirement at the age of 40 and because having problems with his knees and I believe also hands as well. He was very good one with a very personal style.
