Fighting in a rainstorm Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KOs) scored a 12RD UD over over Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11 KOs) in front of an estimated 50,000 fans in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Martinez controlled the early rounds as Murray stayed on the defense. Murray opended up later on in the fight stealing rounds from Martinez as he appeared to be on the verge of a comeback. Martinez was cut over the left eye in round six. Murray dropped Martinez in round eight with a right hand. Scores were115/112 on all three cards.
Martinez age started to show and he began to tire in the laters rounds. Good fight over all we will see if he is ready for a rematch with Chavez Jr.
