What's his fucking problem with British middleweights?
It's an easy sell with the falkland things. Turns out they're still pissed because we kicked their arses from 3,000 miles away.

Anyway, Martinez KO4ish
It's just mean. Leave our middleweights alone, Serge, you big sexy prick.
GARY BUCKLAND has been handed a major opportunity on the undercard of Martin Murray's fight with Sergio Martinez in Argentina on April 27.

The Welsh warrior, 26, will take on Fernando David Saucedo in a clash which should put the victor close to a world title fight.

Buckland had originally wanted to make another defence of his British super-featherweight crown, but feels this is too big a chance to turn down.

"I've got two notches on my belt to win the British title outright and I only need one more, but this is a shortcut to a world title," he said.

"I've watched Saucedo on DVD and he's a good fighter so I know I won't be in for an easy night over there.

"He boxed Chris John for a world title and he showed he's a tough boxer with a good guard who likes to open up in his own time, but I think with my aggression I can go there and do a job on him."

Facing an Argentine boxer on his home turf would normally be a daunting prospect for a travelling Brit.

Buckland's manager, Brian Powell, however, believes it's simply par for the course for the Cardiff puncher.

"Gary's attitude is he's just going into a boxing ring," Powell explained. "He's boxed in Spain and he's boxed in Mexico so he knows the situation and how to train accordingly.

"Even in the UK he's had to box away from Wales most of the time, going up to Sheffield and Manchester, so this won't worry him.
:happy G-Buck!
