Comments

Martinez had a knockdown scored against him when he was was dropped into the ropes near the end of round 1 with a left to the body and a right to the head. Martinez recovered, and jumped in and out to land quick punches in the early rounds. Margarito had difficulty cornering his opponent, but landed well when given the opportunity. By round 4, Margarito's pressure began to take over the fight, as Martinez began to hold more and more often. In round 7, a battered Martinez was hurt by a series of power punches, and the fight was ultimately stopped by the referee.
