Manfredo targets Martinez

Middleweight contender Peter “The Pride of Providence” Manfredo, Jr. had a ringside seat in MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods last Saturday night to witness the superlative performance turned in by WBC Emeritus 160-pound champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez, who dropped previously unbeaten WBO junior welterweight titlist Sergiy “Razor” Dzinziruk five times en route to an eighth-round knockout. Manfredo (37-6, 20 KOs) is riding a six-fight win streak since losing to super middleweight Saki Bika in 2008. The star of The Contender, Season One is currently rated #7 by the IBF and #9 by the WBC.

Now working fulltime sweeping floors at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, ironically where he headlined four major shows, Manfredo has been mentioned as a possible for WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm. However the popular Italian-American boxer seems more interested in having promoter Lou DiBella put him in with his stablemate Martinez instead. (more…)
