Julio Cesar Martinez: I Am Feeling Good, Will Come Back Even Stronger

SAN DIEGO – The team surrounding Julio Cesar 'El Rey' Martinez doesn’t find any shame in losing to an all-time great.

The week ended with a lopsided defeat to the legendary former four-division champion atop a March 5 DAZN show from Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California.
