Cotto-Martinez: Celebrity Predictions

One day before three-division world champion and the Pride of Puerto Rico, Miguel Cotto challenges World Boxing Council (WBC)/The Ring middleweight champion and Argentina’s favorite son, Sergio "Maravilla" Martínez, opinions are flying on who will emerge victorious.

Below, please find some select celebrity predictions. 

Cotto vs. Martínez will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View, Saturday, June 7, beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT, from the “Mecca of Boxing,” Madison Square Garden. 

CELEBRITY PREDICTIONS: MIGUEL COTTO vs. SERGIO MARTINEZ

Brandon Jacobs (Martinez): “I am a big Cotto fan. I think he's out-matched in this fight. He's the smaller guy plus his hand speed isn't faster. I'd love for Cotto to beat this guy but I don't think it's going to happen.”

Sugar Ray Leonard (Cotto): “I've met both of these incredible fighters with such a wonderful demeanor outside the ring and the question is who has the most boxing ingredients left at this point in their career? Sergio always will have that power which never leaves a boxer even past his prime and Cotto will always have that knowledge to break down an opponent during the fight.  A slight edge to Cotto but don’t bet the house. Good luck to two great fighters and decent men!"

Reggie Miller (Martinez): “Martinez will take it. He's bigger, stronger, and more physical.” 

Rosie Perez (Cotto): “Both are excellent fighters. And most have Martinez winning this match. And no disrespect to Sergio - who I love, but are you kidding me? How can I not root for my fellow Boricua?!  I'd be run outta town! Win, lose or draw, Miguel Cotto!”

Felix 'Tito' Trinidad (Cotto): “It is an interesting fight for the boxing world and also for Team Cotto. Cotto should win by decision.”

Mike Tyson: “This will be a defining moment for Cotto. If he gives his absolute best and uses everything he has learned from his experience in boxing he will give a great account of himself. I would like to see him do well because he has gotten some bad breaks in his career. He is going to have to cut Martinez off in the ring because is a great mover. He's like a tango mover when he boxes. My personal opinion I think this is going to be one of the greatest fights of the year. I am looking forward to taking my wife on a great date night to celebrate our fifth anniversary.” 

Micky Ward (Martinez): “Sergio by close decision. He must use his smarts or Cotto will take it.”

[QUOTE=nolotek;14632087]Keys to victory for Cotto: 1) Never stop throwing punches. 2) Never show respect for Martinez at any time. 3) Force to move Martinez all over the ring to try to take advantage of his injured knee. 4) Come forward,…

I've always been a fan of both. Wouldn't mind seeing either guy win, but I'm leaning towards Sergio by late stoppage
