Just wait until Cuban Lara Biatch Slaps Canelo around the Ring from post to post like Mayweather did to see all the excuses the resident Chihuahuas like Tumbo will make for why Lara was able to do that to Canelo… LOL it’ll be funnyPosted June 11, 2014 10:28 am
Most if not all of the Sore Loser Rants on these Boards are not from Argentinians.. they’re from Sore Losing Chihuahuas like te tumbo, who prayed to their Santa Muerte Saint for Sergio to Beat the Puerto Rican Super Star Cotto… Because it drives them insane when a Puerto Rican gets such Attention and Accolades.. LOL fkers never change..Posted June 11, 2014 10:20 am
Floyd isn’t stupid, he isn’t going anywhere near this version of Cotto.. Nope won’t happen he’ll try to find some poor 140lb chihuahua to beat up like Canelo who he Biatch slapped for 12 rounds…Posted June 9, 2014 12:07 pm
What’s better than winning? Losing, coming back, improved, and winning again. That’s what! Max props Miguel cotto.Posted June 9, 2014 4:42 am
Last nights version of Cotto can certainly beats floyd in a rematch. If Cotto easily drew blood from floyd’s nose in the first fight, considering Floyd got his ass kicked by Maidana, a rematch at the MW limit, Floyd would be in over his head and the fight would have to be without a catchweight which is always Floyd’s crutch.Posted June 8, 2014 11:57 pm
Again….oustanding performance. Cotto was razor sharp lastnight.Posted June 8, 2014 11:06 pm

Sorry azz puerto ricans are on crack they cant get any rican elible of there race to be the grand marshal for their puerto rican parade a Mexican had to represent the latino culture yes gabriel Iglesias was their grand Marshal wass up fluffy
@boricua s eat mexican chorrizo You f–king idiot. from what I understand the Ricans have done this before. They probably wanted to share their national day and make a latino alliance of some kind. But you’re a savage and don’t comprende. You should be proud that they invited your moral-LESS fagot home boy in the first place. With respect to the Ricans but you guys probably F–ked up a perfectly good parade by inviting this whatever from land of the cucarachas. My heritage would NEVER insult our Motherland by putting a f–king a south of the border animal on a podium. Word!

Cotto should fight the winner of Canelo and Lara . Hopefully it will be Canelo because that would do huge pay per view numbers. If cotto can get mayweather that would be an even bigger money fight . Either way cotto is a champion again.Posted June 8, 2014 8:05 pm
Very impressive performance by Cotto. I thought he was finished an this was a retirement payday. It was obviously the other way around. I’m a believer again.Posted June 8, 2014 7:44 pm

I am impressed by Cotto and he deserves all the credit as I, as well as others, had him all washed up and fighting on nothing else but pride, but I was wrong…. which I don’t mind admitting.. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but i’d like to see a rematch with him and Mayweather but also with him and Pacquio which many people never mentioned.. @ from the same stable going at each other would be GREAT… plus I think he’d ( Cotto ) would want to try to event the score between the two… Just my thoughts
Same here rusty, but had cotto with a knock down, and Sergio would come from behind, forgo cotto renew with roach help, seen the fight no wasted movement, Sergio was all over the place dancing for nothing use the arms to block and setup. Good fight.Posted June 8, 2014 5:04 pm
Well, Cotto proved me wrong, did’nt think he had enough gas in the tank, and he deserves maximum
All said and done, the real player here, is Freddy Roach.Posted June 8, 2014 4:51 pm

Congratulations to Miguel Cotto for exposing an over confident Sergio Martinez that was a good athlete with some boxing skills at one time, but he was never anything special. We all knew both guys were past their primes, but Martinez was physically more broken down and his age and inactivity added to his down fall. Martinez used his movement and hand speed to win most of his fights. Boxers like Ali, Roy Jones Jr and Martinez use their athletic ability to beat the majority of their opponents. They are not technically sound fighters that learn how to fight inside and deal with pressure fighters that take their best punch and keep coming. They take punches and have strong fighting hearts, but they are lost if they can’t use their legs, move, counter and box like they did when they were younger. Cotto deserved this win because he has always been a warrior. He is very respectful and always gives fan pleasing fights. He’s a well rounded fighter that has taken his lumps. Martinez was physically falling apart and has been for his last few fights. He needs to retire. Miguel Cotto is in the drivers seat right now, but he has very difficult challenges that would be tough for him to win. IMO, Canelo is too young, fast and strong. Lara is too good. GGG simply destroys him. Cotto would be fighting the young guns that would present too difficult of challenges for Cotto to win. He’s too small. These guys are not Martinez. He could fight Mayweather, and the fight would be great in MSG. Maidana showed the blue print, and Cotto is much more skilled than Maidana. If Floyd is slowing down, which I think he is, Cotto could beat him. If Floyd is still at the top of his game, he wins an easy decision. A big fight would be Cotto vs Manny Pacquiao. This would be a huge fight for redemption, and the fighters fan bases would create an exciting, explosive environment. These fighters fans are loyal and they love their fighters. Cotto would fight for redemption and Manny for his 9th title. What more drama would you need. Unfortunately for Miguel Cotto, he takes a tough beating and gets stopped in the later rounds. Miguel Cotto is a great fighter, but Manny Pacquiao is the greatest pure fighter of all time and a legend. Trust me on this, Manny beats Cotto badly. I like Miguel Cotto a lot, and I hope whoever he fights, he makes a lot of money and goes off into the sunset with his health. This is a class person that deserves the best.Posted June 8, 2014 2:37 pm
Wow! No I don’t think so. I had Martinez and lost like I do from time to time. My picking Donaire against Rigo was another bad call on my end. It doesn’t happen often but I am awesome and don’t care when it does. I am the greatest PROPHET ever!Posted June 8, 2014 1:53 pm
I took Cotto last night as a true WINNER would. I made my money and will laugh taking the cash to the bank on Monday. I am the greatest fight PROPHET ever born!!!!Posted June 8, 2014 1:52 pm

I love the discussion and comments. I will have a more in-depth piece in a couple days that will examine Cotto’s fight options moving forward and the logic behind each one, as well as Sergio’s next options. Really looking forward to everyone’s opinion.
As for the fight, Cotto looked amazing last night. If you break down the compubox numbers, Martinez landed just 100 punches through essentially 9 rounds which is only 11 punches a round. Cotto’s movement, defense, and stamina shocked me. I know he has the offense but he looked as if he could go 15 rounds if need. Martinez NEVER hurt Cotto, which was also shocling to me. I kind of got the feeling Martinez was in trouble just by looking at both fighter in the dressing room on the monitors. Cotto was drenched in sweat, looked loose and focused and Martinez look like he had trouble starting the ignition if you will.
Whatever Freddie Roach has Cotto doing or believing, he needs to keep hitting the repeat button for as long as he can.Posted June 8, 2014 1:41 pm

I agree,…………Cotto/CaneloPosted June 8, 2014 1:27 pm
The best and smartest fight right now for Cotto would be a middleweight title fight with him and Canelo….the timing is perfect for both fighters. Canelo can’t make 154 anymore and both guys have a large fan base. It’s THE MOST LUCRATIVE FIGHT IN BOXING that can be made right now outside of Mayweather/Pacquiao. I think that fight will happen this year.Posted June 8, 2014 1:24 pm

A true great tries to clean out the division…I didn’t hear GGG or anyone else’s name get called out last night…Just a man who is two divisions lower who already spanked that ass….There is your evidence…Posted June 8, 2014 1:20 pm
GGG would kick the snot out of CottoPosted June 8, 2014 12:52 pm
Sergio could not box circles around Cotto no matter what year they met. Sergio beat a shot Williams and a Dead ghost only 2 people on his entire resume. B-hop showed the entire boxing world the ghost was all hype and Williams was coming off losses when he tried to move up in weight. Sergio is a C level figher who got pawned by a A level.Posted June 8, 2014 12:11 pm
Cotto vs Canelo or GGG! If this happen I’m betting on Cotto again!Posted June 8, 2014 12:09 pm
Cotto vs Floyd ( no question please)Posted June 8, 2014 11:49 am
I love how now Martinez was “cripple” and a “shelf of his former self” …… Please respect the sport the same way Sergio did; the better man won, enough said!Posted June 8, 2014 10:50 am
WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26 KO’s) is hoping he can get a shot at the winner of the June 7th fight between WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez vs. Miguel Cotto. Golovkin matches up well with either of these guys, and it would give Golovkin his first big name of his career.
Golovkin thought he was close to getting a fight against former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, but the negotiations between the two fighters’ teams fell apart recently leaving Golovkin staring at a fight against either Daniel Geale, who was beaten last year by Darren Barker, or Jarrod Fletcher. Neither option is particularly interesting.
“It’s very interesting [Cotto vs. Martinez] to me,” Golovkin said to ESPN’s Dan Rafael. “Sergio is bigger, he is stronger. Miguel is small, too small for Sergio. Of course, I want to fight the person who will win the fight. It would be very big. I want to fight the winner.”
It would be a big fight between Golovkin and the winner of the Cotto-Martinez fight. It would be the biggest fight in the middleweight division right now. However, I don’t think either of these guys will want to mix it up with a puncher like Golovkin. I would be very surprised if either of them agreed to fight Golovkin. I’d say the chances of the winner of the Cotto vs. Martinez fighting Golovkin are less than 5%.
Cotto has already talked about not defending the WBC middleweight title if he wins it. He just wanted to win the belt in order to capture a 4th division world title. Cotto is expected to move down to the junior middleweight division and fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez win or lose in his fight against Sergio Martinez. Golden Boy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya is eager to match Canelo and Cotto up. But as far as Golovkin goes, he’s not likely to even be given a consideration by Sergio and Cotto. He’s too good.Posted June 8, 2014 9:54 am
Damn that dark haired chick on the left is fu(king hot!!!Posted June 8, 2014 9:44 am
Well genius, who should Cotto have fought who had a better resume than Sergio? GGG may have a “belt” and seem dangerous, but he has no strong resume…nothing even close to a HOF career, and no other fighter had the lineal MW title, whom Sergio was widely recognized as in fact, he was ranked in the P4P rankings and besides, bought more money to the table. Sergio as much as Cotto deserve credit for taking the fight unlike other pretenders who think they are either “ATG”, P4P, or TBE just because they have zero losses, yet fight opponents who are way past their prime or has-beens…..I think you know who I am referring to who is mostly a Fraud. Cotto is now in the limelight of boxing while that “other” pretender just got a smack down of a lifetime by an 140lb’er from Argentina which didn’t look none to good for someone who tragically believes he’s TBE. Congrats Cotto, you just stole the thunder from those who preach to being the best but don’t fight the best.Posted June 8, 2014 9:33 am
Sergio and his trainer had no plan B.. all they trully believed was that Cotto was too small and Sergio too strong for Cotto like most of the people on these Boards and other Fight web sites.. Once Cotto proved he could hit and hurt Sergio.. Sergio went into panic mode and just tried to survive.. jumping on his Bike and running around in Circles all night long.. Knee looked damn good as Sergio peddled that Bike…Posted June 8, 2014 9:16 am
Martinez wasn’t exposed, he would still beat the Red out of Cinnabums hair at 160lbs. Cotto just proved that with a real Trainer, no weight draining, Mentally healthy he can beat anyone of the so called top guys… We’ll see if Mayweather, Paquiao or Cinnabum want to fight Cotto at 154lbs but Cotto will need a weight gain limit for Cinnabum who balloons up to 178+lbs overnight.Posted June 8, 2014 9:13 am
It were the left hooks to the body that did most of the damage in the opening of the first round and Sergio never recovered from those punches and this dictated the rest of the fight. It was all done after the first round. Cotto handled Martinez with real professionalism. Cotto is simply on another level from Martinez.Posted June 8, 2014 9:12 am
Cotto came in at 155lbs barely, he’s not staying at Middleweight.. he proved he has the Balls and skills beating a top Dangerous Middleweight.. he will go back to fighting at welter weight. Possibly Mayweather 2, Paquiao 2 or vs Cinnabum providing Canelo gets past lara… no need for Cotto to fight 160+lb guys when he could barely make 155lbs.. We’ll see now if Mayweather has the Balls to give Cotto a rematch at 154lbs..Posted June 8, 2014 9:11 am
To all those clowns saying Martinez was exposed.. don’t be ridiculous. I’m a fan of both fighters, but in Martinez’s prime he would have boxed circles around Cotto, even with Roach in his corner. Martinez looked like a boxer from waist up, but his legs were that of a frail old man. He could barely put anything onto his punches as there was no foundation beneath him.
Don’t disrespect a boxer, particularly when coming back after 14 months of inactivity, who had numerous injuries to contend with and straight away facing a dangerous opponent. Martinez was genuinely about 40% of his former self last night and was a shame to see a champion get man handled like that. Only consolation was Cotto being in the opposite corner, congrats.Posted June 8, 2014 9:06 am
Martinez was done before the fight began. No side to side or the movement he was known for. He was a stationary target and Cotto took advantage of it. Cotto vs Froch anyone? Cotto vs GGG? Cotto vs Chavez? Cotto vs Canelo? Cotto vs Quinlin? The door is wide open for any of these matches.Posted June 8, 2014 9:01 am
Swedish Boxing Fan
Congratulations to Miguel Cotto for knocking-out Sergio Martinez to become the new Lineal/WBC world middleweight champion! He earned this victory and world title to his career legacy.
I’m glad that Cotto won, as I never felt Martinez was a interesting middleweight world champion or one of the best either in the middleweight league. All ready from the start when he won the world title from Kelly Pavlik back in April 2010 I droped him intersting when he made the STUPID mistake to drop the WBO title from the once unified crown unified by Bernard Hopkins.
Sergio Martinez was a good boxer in his best days and he made 2 interesting fights as middleweight champ with his rematch KO 2 victory over Paul Williams in 2010 and his UD victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in 2012 But the other 4 defences was no special to me.
Martinez felt like a title holder who was not interesting to fight thretning opponents so under 4 years he was mostly silent on wanting to unify the world middleweight titles and he did not make it better by avoiding Gennedy Golovkin either.
Cotto won by sizzling stoppage just as I predicted. I am the greatest fight PROPHET ever born and am about to go buff my own wood!!!!!Posted June 8, 2014 8:34 am
I just became a Cotto-fan. What a great warrior who is not afraid to face bigger middleweights. He totally exposed Martinez as a fraud who has been ducking the other middleweight contenders for years now. I don’t understand who are these Martinez fans, as I have never liked his style which is basically based on wild ‘lucky’ punches instead of accuracy and basic boxing. I always knew Martinez is a fraud and Cotto had the courage to expose him.Posted June 8, 2014 7:39 am
“Rising star”…my eye! Martinez is a cripple and shouldn’t have been allowed to fight. I was sick to my stomach watching the fight: he couldn’t move, or plant his feet to throw a power punch. Roach knew this just as he knew when Oscar was done before he put Manny in against him.
Shame on Arum, HBO and Madison Square Gardens for allowing this travesty. Between this nonsense and that gutter creature, Mayweather…it’s just about enough to make me give up boxing.Posted June 8, 2014 7:27 am
