Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) has no issue with the recent fight prediction from his coach, Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, who said the Puerto Rican superstar will stop WBC middleweight king Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) in four rounds. The fight takes place this coming Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"They say the fight goes nine rounds, I think we win in four rounds. Miguel's ring  generalship alone will win this fight. We have two more days of sparring, then four rounds of work and that's it. We are ready to fight," Roach said.

This will be the second fight where Cotto is being trained by Roach.

"I understand why Freddie is so confident and is saying the things he is saying. He believes in me. We have worked hard in the gym. The work is almost done. Martinez is a world champion. I am prepared to fight and I want promise to my fans I will do my best to win the world championship," Cotto said.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC]Resume is not at issue here -- age, among other things, is. Cotto is not a 160 lb fighter, even if he manages to win this next encounter. His performance started to weaken at 154. I think we can agree that neither of these guys can climb the divisional ladder indefinitely, with...

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]I'm sorry to burst the Cotto train's bubble, but people are saying it depends on Martinez's health because it completely, 100% depends on Martinez's health. If you could guarantee me that Sergio from Chavez shows up, which is the last time we saw him healthy, I'd guarantee...

[QUOTE=PR ESQ.]Beg to differ, in reality if you quantify all of Cotto's battle over the course of his career against the upper echelon of fighters and 11 rounds of being hit with bricks, age is moot in my humble opinion. His body of work vis a vis Sergio is beyond compare.[/QUOTE] Agreed 110%....

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC]Health is one question, age is another. Sergio is almost 40, while Miguel is only 33. These are the questions that make the outcome of this fight the least bit uncertain. The "Maravilla" that schooled Chavez Jr less than two years ago would be a lock to win this fight, possibly...
