Former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) is ready for a tough battle on Saturday June 7 against WBC middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) at New York's Madison Square Garden. Cotto is finishing up his training with coach Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California.

If Cotto win the fight, then he would become the first boxer from Puerto Rico to win four world titles in four weight divisions. 

"Getting that fourth world championship in a different division would be a great achievement for my career, but at no time would it make me think that I'm better than the other great fighters from Puerto Rico, but I would like to be the first to accomplish something that never has been achieved and that would be for all Puerto Rico and all the faithful followers of the sport on the island," said Cotto.

"I am prepared me for twelve rounds of war, for twelve tough rounds. If he thinks he only needs to prepare for seven, then I will make the last five very difficult for him. I've been working and following the very strong strategy of Freddie Roach."

Rooting for MAC but, I would not be surprised or even upset if Sergio wins as he is the favorite. That said, I can also see Cotto winning this. We just never really know until we see the style mesh in the ring. War Cotto!

I respect Miguel Cotto but this fight last 12 rounds. Martinez will get him outta there before 12. Cotto will back pedal due to punishment he'll be taking.

At his best Cotto is only prepared for about 8 rounds of war.
