I really like knowing David Martinez. Of course there’s his endless boxing knowledge – his ability to analyze a fight — even as it’s happening. (there’s the $200 I made from his De Lay Hoya prediction one time at the MGM Grand — but that’s a story for another time.)
There’s also the fact that he knows how to handle life situations. He just has a wisdom about him. I respect his advice big time. He knows how to treat people with respect. That’s a quality that a lot of people don’t have. It just comes natural to him because he’s a good, decent man.
But one of the best things he’ll ever do is something that only happens at Halloween. He’ll dress up like a masked wrestler! To see little kids stare at him in amazement is really a kick!
David — Thanks for all you’ve done and for keeping us up to date since you started the site in 2007.
Happy Holidays! It is truly a pleasure to be associated with David and his boxing world!
