Post Comments Thread For: The Ballad of Sergio Martinez

By Thomas Gerbasi - Thereís something fitting about Sergio Martinez fighting at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Heís 39 years old, the B-side in a fight against Miguel Cotto in which he holds the world championship belt the Puerto Rican star is trying to win, the one hoping that a body that has betrayed him over the last few years will hold up for 12 more rounds.

Itís almost as if Martinez making it to the ring is the equivalent of New York Knicks captain Willis Reed limping out of the tunnel for Game Seven of the NBA Finals against the LA Lakers on May 8, 1970 to inspire his team and get them off to the start they needed to win the game and the title.

Itís got that feel, that buzz, that for one more night, a great champion can be great. At the same time, this is no basketball game. Martinez canít hit two baskets, go back to the bench, and leave his teammates to finish the work he started like Reed did. This is a fight, 12 rounds with the best fighter Martinez has ever been in with. 36 minutes of wear and tear, physical and mental warfare that can break lesser men.

Martinez is no lesser man. If anything, he should be the ideal for prizefighters these days. Thereís a dignity and class to the Argentinean, one that doesnít dilute his intensity or competitive spirit. Outside the ring he donates his efforts to charitable works and meets the Pope; inside it, he has a mean to him that could best be described as assassin-like.

At this point, such an intriguing Jekyll and Hyde mix Ė and letís not forget the Hollywood looks that make the ladies swoon Ė should have made him a megastar. Donít take that as a snub, because he is a star in the boxing world and at home in Argentina, but he isnít as big as he should be.

Saturday nightís result wonít change that, which is unfortunate, and itís why in the lead-up to the bout, the focus has been on what Cotto demanded to make the fight happen, everything from the contracted weight (159 pounds instead of the middleweight limit of 160), to being introduced last in his home away from home in New York City the night before the Puerto Rican Day Parade.

Wait, so now Sergio is the underdog? When the hell did that happen?
I thought being the naturally bigger dude, southpaw stance, faster hands, and possibly harder puncher means being the favorite? My, how things have changed.

....Martinez will demolish the emotional basket case that is Miguel Cotto. Anyone that truly thinks this will be competitive for more than four rounds is nuts. Miguel will quit on his stool somewhere in the 8-10 round range. Cotto is damaged where it counts; in the head.

The best ever can go uckf himself. He doesn't deserve to fight anyone. Of course Fraud would fight him now. Two bad knees, 39 years old, bad shoulders. 2 years ago where was Fraud? Oh, yeah beating his girlfriend. Sergio would kick that little freaks a s s.

The best fighter Martinez ever face? The same Martinez that put Paul Williams to sleep and left Kelly Pavlik's face a bloody meat slop? GTFO here! This article is laughably absurd. This isn't a step up for Martinez. Cotto has star power, but Martinez already beat a star in Chavez Jr. He is bigger, faster, stronger and has better wins on his resume. Has Cotto ever beaten anyone as good as Martinez? Maybe you can say yes he beat Margarito. Then again the Paul Williams Martinez beat was vastly superior to the version of Miguel Cotto he will be facing Saturday. Cotto winning this fight is an upset. This is a physical mismatch and no the older man is not on the short end of the stick here. Cotto's only chance is to hit a home run early because he will fade down the stretch and get beaten into submission late if he doesn't.

The look on Cotto's face when he first feels Martinez' punch will be priceless. I like Cotto and don't really mean this as a knock but with all this talk about how Cotto is the best fighter that Martinez has ever faced and how Cotto is going to beat the "old man" up, I expect to see plenty of GIFs of his expression when he realizes thinking Martinez was washed up was a mistake.

Sergio is the kind of guy that will punish you in the ring for your actions outside of it and Roach is steadily putting that proverbial nail in Cotto's coffin with every interview.
