He is currently ranked as the number 6 lightweight by The Ring magazine and the number 4 contender by the WBA.
Martin started boxing at the age of 17, after moving to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he also excelled in wrestling and football. He later relocated to Indianapolis, where he trained at the Sarge Johnson Boxing Center under local police officer Pat McPherson, two-time Indiana Golden Gloves champ Ike Boyd, and his father Frank.
Martin won the National Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions at 141 pounds in 2016, defeating Virgil Ortiz by knockdown in the final. He turned pro later that year and signed with Premier Boxing Champions in 2019. He is now coached by Derrick James, who also trains world champions Errol Spence Jr. and Jermell Charlo.
Martin has been making waves in the lightweight division with his skill, athleticism, and power. He has scored notable victories over unbeaten prospects Jerry Perez and Michel Rivera, as well as veterans Ryan Kielczweski and Romero Duno. He is known for his speed, accuracy, and ring IQ, as well as his ability to switch stances and adapt to different styles.
Martin has earned the nickname “The Ghost” for his elusive and unpredictable movement in the ring. He is also a humble and respectful fighter who does not trash talk or boast about his achievements. He prefers to let his fists do the talking and prove himself against the best in the division.
Martin has expressed his desire to fight for a world title in the near future and challenge the likes of Gervonta Davis, Teofimo Lopez, Devin Haney, and Vasyl Lomachenko. He believes he has what it takes to become a world champion and a pound-for-pound star in boxing.
