Sergio Martinez, a dashing and highly talented boxer, turned professional in December 1997, in his homeland of Argentina. Since then, "Maravilla" has moved to Spain, then the United States as he's risen through the ranks of the middleweight division and become one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. In 2010, Martinez was named "Fighter of the Year" by many boxing publications, including The Ring Magazine, for his win over Kelly Pavlik and a stunning 2nd-round KO in a rematch with Paul Williams. A skilled technical fighter, the southpaw fighter mixes up slick combinations, superior hand speed, excellent footwork and punching power to rattle his opponents. Outside the ring, he often visits women's shelters and speaks vociferously against domestic violence and bullying of any kind.
