Martinez: Cotto Most Intelligent, Skilled Foe in My Career

By Elisinio Castillo

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) is expecting a knockout victory in his next fight, but he is not underestimating former three division champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs). Their match is scheduled for June 7th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Martinez is training very hard, because he wasn't fully satisfied with his last performance, a tough April decision over Martin Murray. After being out of the ring for over a year, and recovered from several injuries, Martinez feels refreshed and ready to go.

"I train hard because I understand that any fight could be the last. I would like people to remember me for what I did throughout my career and not for what I did with Martin Murray," Martinez told Velez Deportiva. "I respect [Cotto] a lot. Not for nothing, he's won three world titles [in three weight divisions]. I think he's the most intelligent and skilled opponent I will have faced in my career.

"I do not have any anxiety. I am aware of what I can do, but I'm going in there with the advantage of being mentally strong. I am very calm and confident in myself; if I wasn't I wouldn't have achieved what I have."

[QUOTE=micky1971]miguel will pick this up where chavez left off, im expecting a very hard hitting cotto to score a vicous ko in less than six.[/QUOTE] Then you'll be disappointed. You cannot seriously think Cotto hits as hard as crusierweight Chavez.

And this is why Miguel will emerge victorious.

Oh indeed. If I thought Cotto could both take and deliver punches equal to that of Sergio I would pick him to win. He's coming up short on both accounts however and that's all the difference here.

[QUOTE=Swatty]Whether Cotto wins or not, and I doubt he will, his best fight next, money wise,would be Bernard, who has talked coming down to a catch weight for Floyd but would make just as much fighting Cotto.[/QUOTE] Dumb without hope!
