Cotto Has No Issue With Roach's Prediction of KO in Four

By Edward Chaykovsky

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=bojangles1987;14615929]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…

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;14615711]Health is one question, age [COLOR="Black"]is another. Sergio is almost 40, while Miguel is only 33.[/COLOR] These are the questions that make the outcome of this fight the least bit uncertain. The "Maravilla" that schooled Chavez Jr less than two…
