World Boxing Council Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is really surprised at the decision of WBC Welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. to take on Marcos Maidana in his upcoming fight on the 3rd of May. According to the Argentine legend, his compatriot is an extremely dangerous opposition for the 36 year old American and believes that Mayweather Jr. will find it very difficult to cope with the kind of pressure Maidana will have him under during the entire twelve rounds of their fight.
Martinez stated that it would definitely be a tough fight for Mayweather Jr. adding that although he has no doubts about his greatness, he knows that the American is on the wrong side of 30 and Maidana is like a machine who will come at him constantly from start to finish. Sergio Martinez also thinks his compatriot can take the win for Argentina, inflicting a first ever career defeat on the American.
Maidana fought like a man possessed during his last fight against Adrien Broner last December and if he can conjure up the same kind of magic once again against Money, then there is always the chance of him causing arguably one of the biggest upsets in the history of professional boxing.
Mayweather Jr. will indeed struggle to cope with the kind of punches that Broner had to contend with on that night. Arguably, very few fighters in the world can cope with the monstrous punching powers of the Argentine and if he manages to land a few of those right hand jabs on Money, then he can easily pencil a knockout win for himself.
And Sergio Martinez believes it is this discipline and tremendous punching powers of his compatriot that could prove to be the undoing of the unbeaten American boxing legend who might just have met his match.
Forrest Griffin was a former Georgia Police Officer and now a retired mixed martial arts fighter. He is also a former UFC Light Heavyweight champion.

Forrest Griffin is also recognized by the fight with Edson Paradeo. In this fight Edson went in to break Griffin’s left arm with roundhouse kick aimed at the body that was badly blocked. Forrest continuedand went on to win the fight after dodging a deep arm bar by knockout with his right hand.
You must know that along with Rashad Evans and Matt Serra, Forrest Griffin is the only fighter to go beyond The Ultimate Fighter and take his chance and win in the UFC championship.
Though there are hopes that the next generation of MMA will be able to recreate the UFC experience, it doesn’t seem like it can rise to that status without including Forrest Griffin. The Ultimate Fighter winner and current employee of UFC has responsibilities and duties beyond the realm of fighting in the cage. You may have heard that EA Sports has still decided that this fan favourite fighter should be included in the perennially increasing roster. His fans are overjoyed that he is making a comeback to the scene and can’t wait to get more of him in the upcoming events
Griffin is recognized by indomitable courage and his endless energy reserves. It could only make sense that “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung be introduced alongside Forrest Griffin. Chan Sung Jung is a featherweight contender who recently fought for the title with little fear for himself. The commonality between the two is that they are both relentless fighters whose fires can’t be extinguished.
