Manny Pacquiao vs 'Fake Sergio Martinez' in Rexona Commercial (Video)

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's a video some believe depicts Manny Pacquiao knockout Sergio Martinez, or an actor meant to look like Sergio Martinez anyway. It's a Rexona commercial:


Am I crazy, or does this not jump off the screen as being "Fake Sergio Martinez"? Now granted, it came to my attention through Lou DiBella's Twitter, and Lou getting Sergio's name out there (IN ALL CAPS) at any time is, you know, something he's going to do, and if this video stirs up some fake "controversy" about his fake fighter getting fake knocked out by pretending Manny Pacquiao, and thus gives their side more reason to squawk about a Pacquiao vs Sergio fight, then hey, who can blame him?

But I'm just not seeing it. If anything, it looks like Generic White Guy #44 to me:

But you judge for yourself. Have Rexona and Team Pacquiao sent out a shot at Sergio Martinez, or does this not really look like Sergio Martinez at all and requires great imagination to believe that it does or is supposed to?
