"I have a good relationship with the people who will be doing his business and if they want to fight Sergio they know how to reach me. Sergio, I know, thinks the world of Mayweather’s power and would consider it an honor to fight him but I’m not gonna be out there and try to put pressure or challenge. Floyd’s the boss and if they want to fight…I think it would be spectacular." --Lou DiBella, promoter of middleweight world champion Sergio Martinez (Cliff Rold @ BoxingScene.com)

On April 17, Kelly Pavlik defends the world middleweight championship against Sergio Martinez on HBO.
"This is definitely one the people in Youngstown should take a drive for. By the way, my guy’s going to win. Of course, I also said that twice before and I’m 0-2 against Kelly Pavlik, so they’ve got me on that one. They’re expecting 0-3 but I think I’m going to be 1-2." -- Promoter Lou DiBella, whose fighter Sergio Martinez faces Kelly Pavlik on April 17 in Atlantic City (Joe Scalzo @ The Youngstown Vindicator) (Photo by Phil Hawthorne / Getty Images)
