I was with you on that but i changed my mind slightly on saturdays performance, Martinez impressed me a lot more and I actually think Macklin deserves a bit more credit, he fought well before he gassed out and i reckon they should have let him go out for the 12th and if he got dropped again then throw in the towel.
Dont get me wrong, when he did finally wake up after the 'knock down' he looked all of the fighter he is billed to be
My problem lies in that in the fact that he is deemed as this beast of a fighter on the Mayweather and Pacquiao level. While i see the potential, i just dont buy into it when guys like Barker and Macklin are pinching rounds
As i said i can see sparks of talent that could make him one of the better middleweights of all time, however at 37 i just dont see him going long enough to seal that status
