Martinez has been the main ring announcer for Golden Boy Boxing since 2011 and has also been an occasional Octagon announcer for UFC since 2007, carrying over from the now merged World Extreme Cagefighting and has announced over 100 events under the Zuffa banner. More recently, he was signed by the Professional Fighters League PFL in 2018 to handle MC duties for the organization's inaugural season. Martinez continued to show his multi-platform high-level abilities when he took over the ring announcing duties for the GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez pay per view on HBO in September 2018 - a fight that drew over 1.1 million PPV buys. 2018 saw Martinez reach new heights in his career. He was twice hired as ring Announcer for the DirecTV MMA drama “Kingdom” and was sought after for a role in the same capacity for the upcoming Korean movie “Divine Fury”.
