Middleweight world champion Sergio Martinez looked spectacular in his destruction of previously undefeated Sergiy Dzinziruk, scoring five knockdowns en route to an eighth-round TKO. So what does he do for an encore? Martinez, 36, is a late bloomer who can not afford to waste his time with mandatory challengers. He's looking for big fights - and big paydays - that will keep him in the pound-for-pound discussion.
Martinez would love to face either Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr. - and would drop down to 154 to make it happen - but he's simply too big and too strong. Mayweather would never take the fight and Pacquiao should resist the temptation. might be tempted but should feel no pressure to do so.
So who should Martinez fight next? A third fight with Paul Williams is a possibility down the road but unlikely this year, so it's got to be a new opponent. Vote in our poll and tell us who you'd like to see Sergio Martinez face next.
