If Cotto can get to Martineza’s Body it’ll be a bad night for Sergio..but it
will be tough for the naturally smaller Cotto.. but you have to take your hat
off to Cotto for atleast having a set of Balls which most Boxers today have

Cotto might lose but Cotto has fought one of the ROUGHEST WW schedules of anyone in the sport.. Mayweather, Mosley, Pac, Margo, Judah (solid version) Clottey… He has been in ALOT of World Title fights including a bigger Austin Trout, I don’t see him winning this if Sergios knee holds up but Cotto is a HOFER for damn good reason…

If cotto cant take ww punching power how is he gonna deal with a mw with very good punching power? He is not going to. Martinez gonna pepper with fast crisp jabs along with bodyshots left straights right hooks and upper cuts. Cotto is in way over his head.

Cotto lose to every elite fighter he has faced. Barley beat grampa mosley. Got knocked the f out by Marg and Pac and got outboxed by trout and Floyd. Martinez is the far better boxer and always fights guys bigger and stronger than him. Cotto is gonna knocked out again.

Your kidding right? Barker Chavez and Murray were all undefeated! Get out of here with the cherry picker stuff that floyds mo.

Fight Aficionado

“Martinez is not going to fight this animal.” — Lou DiBella, in a Yahoo Sports story. Martinez will continue ducking GGG so I don’t give a GD what he does. As the one-time undisputed middleweight champion he’s shamed himself by morphing into a cherry picking ducker.

Martinez will win. He is healthy and when he is he is recking machine. This is not the murray fight. Knee is good shoulder fixed hands healed

Martinez has been disrespected and cotto will pay for that come box night.

Posted June 4, 2014 2:37 pm 

sean patrick harrington

Cotto will not win. Cotto gets knocked out at lww many times. Martinez don’t get knocked out. At 160 Martinez is the main man. Martinez is the better boxer period. He has more speed power stamina a good chin and always gets up after knock downs. cotto is ficked!

It could be said that both guys faced Margarito in his prime and Cotto faired better than Martinez. Martinez was the greener of the two to be sure but Margarito was firing on all cylinders when Cotto first fought him. Martinez has size speed and athleticism advantages, but Cotto is technically better than Martinez. That along with age and a brittle body makes this fight interesting. Depending on the odds It might be a good time to pick Cotto for the normally unlikely win.

Margarito after mosley and pac destroyed him?

Hidalgo. Foreman and those guys are bums. Martinez gonna whip cottos ass.

I second that post sredmond

Posted June 4, 2014 11:35 am 


I am a Cotto fan for all the reasons most are, guts, willingness to take on the toughest outs around, and grace in defeat.. That said Miguel is a high contact fighter and Martinez is fast enough and mobile enough to land assuming he is not really incapacitated from his injuries, Sergio can PUNCH and Cotto is gonna have to absorb some hammer shots in order to land with his short reach… My hope is for a competitive contest where both guys leave with cred and glory but if someone is getting stopped I see it being Cotto sadly…

Posted June 4, 2014 10:44 am 


Ok here is my take: yes this fight it’s uphill for Cotto because Martinez is the bigger man but let’s not Kidd ourselves…
Cotto IS a better boxer than Martinez all around really not even close. Look at the opposition they have fought, and in Cottos pedigree is an extensive amateur background.
Second, if Martinez knee is not fully recovered he will get KO…period.
Third, Martinez as good as he is, is overrated. Who has he fought? Pavlik? (See AA) Williams? Ok I give him that, Chavez? (Crack head Chavez?) and then there is Murray…who the hell is that? And he almost beat him.
There is a reason why he is running AWAY from GGG…a man his size and others.
Size will be Martinez biggest advantage Saturday but that’s it. If Cotto can not take his punch he will get Beat by the bigger man but this will not be Trout/Cotto. The fight will be competitive, and if it goes the distance I like Cottos chances in the Garden. If Martinez knee it not healed, he will GTFKO. If Cotto can’t take Martinez power he can also get KO. Prediction: Cotto Via UD.

Cotto is a lefty who fight as orthodox, he gets cut easily and he doesn’t match up well against southpaws. Corley and Judah almost stopped him, Pacquio demolished him and Trout out boxed him.
Martinez punches can produce devastating KO like the one that Williams suffered. Martinez punches can also cause horrific facial damages like Pavlik’s cuts. Martinez did very well against lefty who fought as orthodox, he out-jabbed the jabber and completely destroyed Dzindzurek. Martinez by stoppage inside 6 rounds.

All said & done the only fight @ 160Lb the public want to see is Martinez/Golovkin. “END OF”!

Another sad day for floyd dumb dumbs

Yeh cotto will loose this fight then floyd will call him out or Martinez cause he is 100

Posted June 4, 2014 4:56 am 


Cotto will lose this fight

Posted June 4, 2014 2:40 am 


So Roach was never confident when he made the 4rd KO. He just said it because Martinez will KO Cotto in 9

Posted June 4, 2014 2:40 am 


Cotto has been planning on cheating the entire time. Cotto has his judges, referee, boxing commission, fans, venue, gloves, etc., now Cotto’s boxing commission will not allow Martinez to wear a knee brace?! This fight appears to be crooked as hell. All Cotto has to do is run and be on his feet at the end of the fight and his judges will give him a decision…………….this fight smells…………..but Martinez will still knock Cotto out…………..

Posted June 4, 2014 1:46 am 


The fight with Rodriguez was also at Jr Middle.

Posted June 4, 2014 1:17 am 


Harrington, Nice post! That’s what I’m going to say.

Posted June 3, 2014 10:41 pm 


near to the fight

Posted June 3, 2014 7:38 pm 


Titopa, I’m not sure just why it is being enforced for Martinez yet wasn’t enforced for Yuri Foreman. Perhaps the commission will stick to its rules from here on out, but I can understand why Martinez’s camp is upset about it (especially finding out so neat to the fight).

All things being even, Cotto is a big underdog in this one. However, Martinez’s age, possible physical ailments, and Cotto’s home field advantage make this fight more interesting. Still Cotto is the dog in this one; but he’s livening up.

Posted June 3, 2014 7:14 pm 

sean patrick harrington

Im really not sure why people are picking cotto to win. he has been brutally knocked out by lww and ww. at 154 he has been outboxed by trout. That’s really bad. Than Floyd spanked his ass. I don’t see how cotto can win unless Martinez knees give. Martinez beat pavlik murray and chaves giving them all the first loss except pavlik. Think about it. He does not have single win at 154. How is he gonna beat maravilla? Martinez is the overall better boxer. He is taller longer reach fast hands and feet serious punching power stamina and has a great chin. if he wins I stand corrected I just don’t see it happening. I good big man always beat a good smaller man. Martinez is the better boxer period.

Posted June 3, 2014 6:44 pm 

sean p h

Yes he did. Martinez knocks cotto out if cotto presses him

Posted June 3, 2014 6:35 pm 


Why can’t he wear a knee brace? Didn’t Yuri Foreman wear a knee brace???

Posted June 3, 2014 6:23 pm 

sean p h

Martinez skill size punching power speed and chin will be to much for cotto.

Posted June 3, 2014 6:21 pm 

Tomato Can

Hidalgo, agreed. Thus fight just got a little more interesting.

Posted June 3, 2014 6:02 pm 

Tomato Can

No knee braces? Damn, i think this could a game changer. If old man MRtinez isn’t aloud to wear his braces he better go for the early ko, which is a mistake in itself. Hmmm.

Posted June 3, 2014 5:27 pm

Cotto will most likely get knocked out.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:55 pm 


Martinez by MERCIFUL stoppage.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:53 pm 

sean p h

Agree slim.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:13 pm 


Cotto is gonna get his head knocked off. Have a nice day.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:11 pm 

sean p h

Martinez is the main man.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:09 pm 

sean p h

Will see. Great fight. Two warriors fighting. Going with maravilla

Posted June 3, 2014 3:08 pm

Martinez is one if the best boxers today and a great mw champion.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:00 pm 

sean p h

Cotto is in trouble come fight night. Martinez is to good for him.

Posted June 3, 2014 2:59 pm 


Sergio….still the kingpin at 160…and a nightmare for all top fighters at 154.including the phonies of Canelo and fraud maywheater

Posted June 3, 2014 2:33 pm 


martinez will brake down to pieces the last boricuan warrior

Posted June 3, 2014 2:16 pm 


CurlyQ.Howard – Hmm. Well, just odd that it was okay for Foreman but not Martinez, maybe that rule was recently added and we weren’t aware.

Posted June 3, 2014 1:15 pm 


Titopa, Elsewhere I read that it is a commission rule.

Posted June 3, 2014 11:26 am 

MNboxingFAN – Sean

Dibella is an awesome promoter. If I was a fighter I’d want him as my promoter. He seems like he really gets it. I like both Martinez and Cotto so I won’t be bothered if either win, but it will mean more for Cotto and history of Puetro Rican fight fans everywhere if he becomes the first to win … I believe in 5 divisions? Like I said… either way should be an awesome fight. Hard not to cheer for both camps.
