Sergio Martinez
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. On Monday at a press conference held at the Caesar Park hotel in Buenos Aires, 'Maravilla' Sergio Martinez addressed the crowd in his first appearance at home since defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last month to gain the WBC middleweight title.  At the event, amongst many topics discussed, like the surgery he will undergo on November 12 (for his knee), Martinez also spoke out on a fight he would like... Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.

Martinez stated that he has no doubt that Mayweather Jr. is the best boxing has to offer, stating: "For me, there's no doubt he's (Mayweather) the best boxer in the world."

Martinez added: "I always want to face the best, it would be a great opportunity for me."

Martinez who has a hand and a knee injury to deal with before he even thinks about getting back in the ring, believes he will be ready by April of next year for a return.

Mayweather vs. Martinez? I think Martinez deserves a shot at Mayweather.  Of course I'd love to see that fight. I think they would make for a great match-up in which anything could happen... especially excitement.
