By Alexey “Oscar” Potapov
Boxing superstar and WBC middleweight champion Sergio Gabriel Martinez (46-2-2, 25 KOs) will fight against WBO junior middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk (37-0, 22 KOs) on March 12th at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Speaking from his training camp in Kiev, Ukraine, Dzinziruk gave the following comment to Fightnews.com.
“About fight with Martinez on HBO, I’ll sign the contract in the near future when I arrive in the USA,” said Dzinziruk. “I’ll prepare for the fight in America. The first month I will work on physical conditioning, and the second month I’ll spend in sparring sessions with 2-3 sparring partners a day. Regarding Martinez’s statements, I think that he underestimates me. I hope after fight he will change the opinion. I plan to study the details of Sergio’s weakness in more detail, but right now I can tell that he’s slow, tightened, clumsy and rigid … he doesn’t have the amateur background that I have. I’m fast and I won’t allow him to do what he wants. I currently feel very good and I train every day. Yes, even through the New Year’s holidays, but it doesn’t bother me. I’m focused on fight against Martinez and I want to train hard to present an entertaining fight to fans of boxing.”
