Sergio Martinez vs Darren Barker: Official Poster from HBO

Here's the official HBO poster for their next fight, when middleweight world champion Sergio Martinez defends against Darren Barker on World Championship Boxing. There's also a co-feature rematch between Andy Lee and the only man to beat him as a professional, Brian Vera.

I'm in the minority that likes this fight just fine (or at least it feels like the minority), and I'm looking forward to Lee vs Vera II. They tore it up the first time, and both are flawed fighters who aren't afraid of a brawl. I do expect Martinez to dominate, honestly, and probably stop Barker, who is inconsistent and tends to fade in fights, but Barker's a top ten guy and there just aren't many fighters at 160 who are going to fight Sergio. Barker's willing, so he gets the fight. There's not much more he can do anyway, having already been European champion. This is his all or nothing chance, and he's facing the legit champ.
