Sergio Martinez does a tango on Sergiy Dzinziruk
By Francisco Hernandez: Sergio Martinez amazes fans once again as he out jabs and TKOs formerly undefeated and renowned technical boxer Sergiy Dzinziruk. The audience at Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket, Connecticut was silent and in awe as they witnessed the Gaucho do a tango on his Ukrainian opponent.
Dzinziruk was a dangerous opponent throughout the fight and even hurt Martinez with a punch. Before the TKO Dzinziruk looked like he was beginning to dominate the second half of the fight, but Sergio Martinez got his second wind and overwhelmed Dzinziruk with lighting quick combinations from which the Ukrainian would not recover and lose by TKO in the eighth round of the fight.
Sergio Martinez continues to entertain boxing fans with action packed competitive fights. What is his secret? Two things, first he is a great fighter, and secondly, he doesn’t cherry pick his opponents for one sided bouts. Martinez fights the best fighters, he likes to be challenged. Sergio Martinez is a real risk taker. Pound for Pound Sergio Martinez is number one.
I don’t hear a whole lot of fighters calling out the Gaucho. Twenty year old Canelo is too young and would prefer to fight faded fighters like Miguel Cotto and Shane Mosley. Freddie Roach’s statements about Chavez being able to beat Martinez are more hype than an honest belief on the part of Roach. Right now the only one who seems to be willing to get into the ring with Martinez is the vicious Texan James Kirkland. Kirkland has a reputation for being fearless and violent, and although he would probably be outsmarted and out-punched by the Argentinean, it would make for a memorable fight.
