    • Kevoj,

      I doubt very much that we have seen the same match or your experience in terms of boxing is quite poor.  Mattews was never a match for the very high qualified Sergio. Nevertheless, after a few fight adjustments the knock out came and, surprise, Sergio is fully capable to do that even after the 10 th round despite the fact of being 37 years  old. 
      Next for Sergio may be Floyd if he has the guts to go for. But I doubt very much that Floyd will take this risk because Sergio could be the only one at this time capable to give him a lesson on boxing.       

  1. Sergio was great as usually. However, he could win this fight much more earlier since Mattews was not the adequate rival for his qualifications and high expertise. 
    In my opinion, Sergio should make the required fight adjustments with his future rivals much faster than he did on this with Mattews.  He still is very fast and it seems that he has at least a couple of years of good performance. He should select his next contender more carefully in order to have the money reward he fully deserves. We love you Sergio 

  2. mathews was winning the fight.. up untill the 10th round.. very unlucky..too strong for martinez.. i think martinez is a little bit overrated.. no way in the same league as mayweather.. but a good fighter.. mathews done really well. compared to barker who was very very poor!!!!

    • Get real !!!!. 
      I agree that the fight was close but Mattews was not winning since before round 11 th he almost cannot see from one eye which means he was receiving a severe beat from Sergio.  He was not unlucky at all, on the contrary, he was very lucky to reach round 11 because it took sometime for Sergio to do the required adjustments. Mattews is not bad, but undoubtedly, he was not match for Sergio’s qualifications. Wait till see Sergio fighting with Floyd if this guy accepts the risk. If Floyd does, I hope he doesn’t have the very bad attitude that he shown on his fight with Ortiz.  However, I strongly believe that asking him to be a gentleman it is “mission impossible”.

  3. aguante maravilla!!!!!!!…………..aguante argentina……che julito…..q amargado se te ve….preparate para cobrar…..floyd empeza a temblar…q despues del mexicanito seguis vos putit* jajajajajaj…..

  4. hay un papanatas que se atrevio a decir “mathews was winning the fight..”
    me parece que vio otra pelea

  5. MARAVILLA” its simply the best from 154 to 160 he wd beat cotto,maywheter or pac-man if they ever dare to face him the so called p4p kings r so scared of him,im mexican but im also i boxing fan so i must say martinez wd beat chavez jr probably by ko u have a lot of fans from mexico sergio keep doing what u do and u wil c that sooner or later u wil get all the respect u deserve on the boxing world, to me ur the true p4p KING.

  6. Im excited to see the Chavez Jr fight.  Chavez seems to have a very good chin at this point in his career but I wonder how he will deal with the speed and counterpunching of Martinez…?
