MERCIFUL HOUR: Sergio Martinez TKO11 Matthew Macklin

+
With the win, Martinez can continue his vendetta against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and the WBC (whose garish "Diamond Doodad" he was proud to display in the ring on Saturday night) to the delight of his crackpot fanclub, few of whom, apparently, bothered to attend the fight, which is a shame, because Martinez is someone who is keenly aware of his style as a sort of art. It is a nervy style, one wholly dependent on anticipation, reflex, improvisation. Some of his moves on the perimeter seem to be little more than whimsy and the hands-down technique is bound to catch up with him sooner or later, but Martinez can get away with what he does because of his speed and because of how strange much of what he does is.
