All roads may be pointing to Matthew Macklin but Sergio Martinez is willing to take an other Irish route and face Andy Lee if needs be.
Speaking to www.irish-boxing.com the Pound for Pound #3 revealed he is targeting Floyd Mayweather and his greatest boxer on the planet status and claimed a bout with ’Mack The Knife’ is a massive possibility.
However, despite rumours of a done Macklin deal the Argentine superstar has left the door open for Limerick’s Lee.
Certainly if Macklin and Martinez do trade leather on March 17 Lee is in pole position to face the winner.
“Macklin and Lee are different, but both are great fighters. I repeat that my first option is Mayweather. If we cant make the fight with Mayweather Macklin is a big possibility, but if my promoter wants me to face with Andy Lee now or in the future I will not have any problem with that.”
