The piece I did on Antonio Margarito in the leadup to his bout with Manny Pacquiao was well received, both by the editors at Fox News Latino and in terms of traffic, and I was asked to come up with another boxing story. Following Sergio Martínez second-round knock out of Paul Williams just days before, I thought Martínez would be a great peg.

Reflecting on Martínez’s assertion that he wanted to be the best world’s pound-for-pound fighter, I got to thinking that it’s unlikely he will get that chance to prove himself as the sport’s top fighter due to the unlikely-to-be-soon-settled Mayweather-Pacquiao debate.

The piece was the most read story on Fox News Latino for two straight days.
