Sergio Martinez’s examination results expected next week
Sergio Martinez underwent a lengthy examination with a New York-based orthopedist on Tuesday toward determining his boxing future, advisor Sampson Lewkowicz informed RingTV.com.
“There was an MRI taken, and a full battery of tests but we won’t have any results until next week,” said Lewkowicz during a Wednesday interview with RingTV.com. “It was a long examination, maybe three hours. I was with him. There were a few tests that they did. They did several things.”
The 39-year-old Martinez (51-3-2, 28 knockouts) lost his RING middleweight championship and WBC belt by 10th round stoppage to Miguel Cotto in June.
Prior to facing Cotto, Martinez had to rise from the canvas in each of his previous two unanimous decision victories over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in September 2012 and Martin Murray in April 2013 while also having suffered knee injuries, among others, as a result of those bouts.
“Whatever decision is made from the results, we will not talk to any press individually,” said Lewkowicz. “The news will come in the form of a press release from Lou DiBella Entertainment. We will not discuss any medial details with anyone individually. There will be a release for everyone.”
