Martinez Ready To Take Fatal Risk Against Pacquiao

Undisputed world middleweight king Sergio Martinez says he is willing to take a potentially fatal risk and fight Manny Pacquiao at 150lbs.

Martinez normally fights at the middleweight limit of 160lbs but would consider coming down to 150lbs if he could entice the pound for pound No.1 to face him.

Speaking to Martinez said: "It’s an incredible effort for my body. I walk around at 78 or 79 kilos (171 to 173lbs). To go down to that weight can be fatal for my health, but it can be done. With enough time, I think it’s possible to do."

First, though, Martinez must defend his world middleweight title on October 1 against British fighter Darren Barker in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
