Sergio Martinez is the definition of an unconventional boxer. He fights with hands down by his side and gets away with it because of his quick foot movement to dart in and out of trouble.
He has power in both hands but his most notable punch is the very fast, powerful and accurate straight left. His ability to control the pace and counter punch effectively makes his opponents think twice before getting close.


Martinez was a late bloomer and didn’t start boxing until the age of 20. His previous background of cycling and football combined with natural ability set the path for a short but successful amateur career.
His skills would transcend into the professional ranks where he kept a relatively low profile, fighting against low-medium competition mainly in Argentina and Europe. Since 2008, his popularity steadily rose when he had several notable fights in the USA on HBO Boxing.
Most recently, Martinez fought Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in which history was made. Martinez suffered a 12thround scare when Chavez Jr. unloaded punches and knocked him dow. However, Martinez’ skill, experience and conditioning from training prepared him to survive such situations.
• Martinez cannot swim but still stands up on a surfboard to maintain his balance.
• Instead of running, he goes cycling because it’s his hobby and also causes less strain on the legs as opposed to running.
• Does no more than 60 rounds of sparring for each fight so it doesn’t wear out his body or cause any short or long term injuries.
An intelligent individual inside and outside the ring, Martinez is dedicated to his profession and has taken the long and hard road to glory. Considered to be poundfor-pound number three on most major sports news and boxing websites, Martinez has been longing for the number one spot held collectively by Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. If he continues winning, then may just fill that position.
