Looks like WBC middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez (45-2-2, 24 KOs) of Argentina will take on Paul “The Punisher” Williams (39-1, 27 KOs) on November 20th in a rematch, a venue for the fight has not been determined but possibilities include New York, Atlantic City and California. The two fighters engaged in an exciting back and forth action bout last year which ended in a controversial loss for Martinez. Sergio Martinez then went on to claim the WBC/WBO middleweight titles from the then reigning middleweight champion Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik (36-2, 32 KOs) via unanimous decision this past April in Atlantic City, NJ. Martinez was then stripped of his WBO title, due to one of the organization’s rules, less than 2 months after having defeated Pavlik. Martinez is expected to begin training camp in mid September for this fight.
