What is a 'big purse' in Martinez eyes? I donīt know how much HBO pays him for a fight against a boxer like Dzinziruk, but I guess a fight against WBA superchamp Sturm in Germany could bring him between 1,5 and 2 Million US Dollars, with HBO even more. That would be a fight I would love to see as a boxingfan. Zbik and Sylvester are only 'protected' paper champs in my opinion and would be no real challenge to a boxer like Martinez, so I understand that he has no interest in fighting them.
PBF and Pacman are very unrealistic if you ask me. Money-wise a fight against Cotto could make sense, although I believe that Miguel has his best time as a boxer already behind him.
