2008-10-04 : Sergio Martinez 154 lbs beat Alex Bunema 152½ lbs by RTD at 3:00 in round 8 of 12


Bunema started very slow, not throwing enough and landing even less. He was being outworked and outhustled by the much quicker Martinez. Bunema could not figure out how to counter the quick southpaw style of Martinez. In the third round, Martinez began to batter Bunema all over the ring, knocking him down with a left hand and battering him against the ropes at the bell. During the middle rounds, Martinez used quick punching to keep Bunema on the defensive at all times, working him over against the ropes often. By the seventh round, both of Bunema's eyes were swollen and he took a beating in that particular round. Martinez continued his assault in the eighth round, giving Bunema a further beating with Bunema not fighting back. The ringside doctor stopped the fight before the start of the ninth round.
