Career highlight: Bronze medallist – South American Games 2010
Twenty-two-year-old Martínez is an all-round boxing technician who looks to put his opponents under enormous pressure with well-planned, calculated attacks and hard body-head combinations.
Involved in boxing since the age of eleven, Martinez admits the sport is his ‘whole life’, even giving up his studies to dedicate more time to achieving his goal of becoming the best boxer he can be. Known as a practitioner of a style of fighting called ‘choque’ in his native Spanish (literally translated as ‘collision’ or ‘crash’), Martinez prefers an all-action approach in the ring, coming forward and trading punches with an opponent.
He has excellent balance, precision punches when in attack and a tight guard when in defensive mode, all strengths which helped him win a bronze medal at the 2010 South American Games.
The Argentine fought for Los Angeles Matadors in WSB, before switching to his home country franchise the Argentina Condors in Season III, and will have gained invaluable experience from boxing at such a high level.
Martinez’s motivation, ring experience and boxing skill will make sure he is a difficult opponent for anybody in the 52kg category in APB as he looks to qualify for the Olympic Games for the very first time.
