New York, NY – Sergio Martinez, one of boxing’s brightest stars, who makes his 2012 ring debut on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) at New York’s Madison Square Garden, will be featured on the next installment of the Emmy-nominated HBO series Ring Life, which will be available on the network as well as all the digital media platforms that distribute the series.

Martinez, who turns 37 on Feb. 21, hails from Argentina, but has made Oxnard, CA his home base in America.  Surprisingly, he did not take up the sport of boxing until the age of 20 and after quietly building his resume his pro career took off in 2008.  Since then the polished southpaw (48-2-2, 27 KOs) has fast-tracked his way to become the dominant force in the middleweight division and among the top performers in the sport.

Interestingly, Martinez takes the responsibility of being a high-profile sports star seriously and has made it a priority to speak out and support a wide range of important social initiatives, including bringing an end to bullying among children and teens.

Ring Life chronicles the lives of fighters as they define the spirit of boxing; balancing work, family life, training, expectations and the pursuit of their dreams.  Front and center in these fighters’ lives, Ring Life presents a chapter on each fighter that delves inside their hearts and minds to discover what drives them in the ring and beyond, in the ultra-competitive sport of professional boxing.

The Martinez Ring Life profile will debut Friday, March 2 at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.  The profile is approximately 12 minutes.

HBO playdates:  Mar. 5 (11:30 p.m.), 12 (7:45 p.m.), 14 (1:00 p.m.) and 16 (12:30 a.m.)

Both fighters are back in a featured spot and find themselves in a "must win"fight here if they are to stay relevant in the middleweight division. It will be interesting to see if Lemieux, who has struggled to make weight in the past and actually had a Canadian PPV fight cancelled due to weight issues can still make the 160 pound middleweight limit. The middleweight division and both men have experienced setbacks as both are usually best remembered for their respective losses to Gennady Golovkin, who fight next March 18th on HBO pay-per-view.   Ray Flores Talks Lemieux vs Stevens Middleweight Match up In this latest TBC segment we are joined by our analyst "the Road Warrior" Ray Flores to take a closer look at the Lemieux vs Stevens match-up.
