Martinez is pretty much a regular sized guy. Judging by the old pics, he looked like he grew up with normal nutrition. Manny looked malnourished in his early fights. Plus, he never said himself that he didn't grow up with dinners, his business manager did. And I think Merchant said once that Martinez tried to be a soccer player and cyclist before being a boxer. Some things just don't add up. I think that program exaggerated a bit.
I remember Floyd accusing HBO of exaggerating stuff about Ortiz' life. That he was estranged from his father at a young age and turns out Victor's dad actually took him to Oxnard for boxing training or something like that.
