This Saturday April 27, boxing's undisputed Middleweight king is back in action. Modern day great Sergio Martinez (50-2-2; 28 KOs) fights for the first time since his dramatic encounter with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last summer, and he does it in front of a potentially explosive crowd in a soccer stadium in Argentina.
