Middleweight kingpin Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez defeated Martin Murray on Saturday night in Argentina, to the delight of tens of thousands of screaming home country supporters. It was a close, fairly even contest, although Martinez did enough to capture the unanimous decision victory. All three judges had the fight scored 115-112 for Martinez.
Right here, you’ll find a collection of photos showcasing the Martinez vs. Murray results. You’ll see the fighters up close and personal on fight night. Take a look.
As you can see, we also have a few photos of the weigh-ins from the day before.
Murray put up a strong challenge, and definitely was able to take Martinez out of his game at times. Whether it was the huge expectations from the homecoming to Argentina, or the long layoff and recovery from surgery, Martinez wasn’t necessarily at his best.
Nevertheless, it’s another successful title defense for Martinez, and one wonders what’s next. Is is the rematch against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, or a fight against the winner of the Gennady Golovkin vs. Matthew Macklin bout, or even a fight against Peter Quillin? We’ll have to wait and see.
