Walsh out to drop Sergio Martinez’s jaw tonight
By Jonny Stapleton
SERGIO Martinez left Dee Walsh in awe on a number of occasions over his long and illustrious career and the Belfast fighter feels it is only right he returns the favour in Spain tonight.
The greatest middleweight on the planet will be ringside as Walsh goes to work in the holiday town of Malaga and the NoWhere2Hyde fighter is planning to pay him back for the years of entertainment by producing a show stopping display of his own.
The confident and talented prospect meet the fighter who beat a game Matthew Macklin on St Patricks Day in New York this week, but hopes to make a more lasting impression on the pound for pound world number 3 tonight.
“Sergio Martienz is the only person that spoke English the whole time we’ve been here. We were talking to him about the time he fought in theKings Hall against Richard Williams, and Tony (Dunlop) was mentioning to him about greats from Argentina. He bowed when Tony mentioned the great Carlos Monzon,” an excited Walsh told Irish—boxing.com.
It could be a long time before Walsh forces Martinez to bow upon hearing the Belfast fighters name, but he does hope to have ‘Marvello’ out of his seat in Spain tonight.
Walsh plans to put on a show not a of the caberiet kind for the boxing great.
“I definitly want to impress. I watch Martinez a lot, he has put on a lot of shows for me, so I think I’ll return the favour!”
‘Waldo’ by no means is expecting an easy ride tonight. The 22 year old claims he will have to be at his best to beat
(1-2-0) and is concern about the heat.
“So far I’ve impressed everywhere I’ve been, people just love my style. The only thing that could stop me putting on a show is the heat, and its outdoor too. That will make it worse I had a look at him on youtube, he very strong an very fit, so I have to be at my best to beat him.”
