Sergio Martinez keeps calling out Floyd Mayweather Jr., but the Mayweather fans make no mention of a Martinez versus Floyd fight, instead, they want Manny Pacquiao to fight Sergio Martinez, even though Sergio would rather fight Floyd and claims Pacquiao is too small for him.
If you go through all the videos on YouTube of Sergio Martinez talking about Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, he says the fight that he wants the most is with Floyd Mayweather, he even says Pacquiao is too small and his trainer says Pacquiao would get knocked out easy by Sergio, but they never say Floyd is too small, they say he will be a tough fight for Sergio and they could fight at 154-pounds.
According to Mayweather fans, they say all you have to do is call Floyd out and he will accept your challenge. If this were true, why didn’t Floyd fight Sergio Martinez instead of Victor Ortiz? Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Sugar Shane Mosley all called Floyd Mayweather out and he fought them all, it’s because he hand picked them knowing it was the right time to fight them or because he knew he could beat them easily. Sergio is just too dangerous, that is why Floyd is ignoring him and acting like he doesn’t exist.
Mayweather hasn’t fought Manny Pacquiao yet because Manny is still in his prime and still dangerous. Sergio Martinez has called Floyd out numerous times, even saying he will let Floyd have the lions share of the pay-per-view revenue and he will take the Olympic Style drug testing, but there was no peep from Team Mayweather.
Floyd only fights guys he believes he can beat. Floyd doesn’t want any part of Amir Khan either, he told Amir to go fight his fighter Jessie Vargas instead. Amir Khan has a lot of advantages over Floyd, and he could win a fight on points easily with his hand speed and flurries. Sergio Martinez is a big southpaw, with punching power, and a slick style, he could beat Mayweather by KO. Manny Pacquiao is another awkward southpaw with relentless pressure and stamina for days, he could beat Mayweather on points or a TKO stoppage.
All three of these boxers are in their prime or near their peak, but you won’t see Floyd Mayweather step in with any of them until the timing is right, and they show some vulnerability.
