a few $ on the underdog and a few $ on a draw/no contest. I see cuts and headbutts in the future of this bout.

Grimm says:

Comfortable win by UD for Martinez - even though I expect some signs of slippage. Murrays tough & disciplined, but essentially too limited to really threat Maravilla. The Sturm-comparison has been brought up, but Sturm - a solid pro as he was/is - was an altoghether different fighter than Martinez: robotic, predictable, one-shot-at-a-time fighter. Martinez is the opposite: unconventional, unpredictable, and - as stormcentre stated - working with/from weird angles. He'll get his momentum going, and eventually Murray will have a hard time keeping him off - but I believe he'll end the fight standing up and with his reputation intact or even enhanced.

ali says:

Martinez by UD Murray is a tough dude.

Yes he is. If the Sturm fight is any indication, Murray has no productivity from his right side. None.

DeBella & Co. picked the proper opponent.
