Martinez: Forget The Judges, Cotto is Going To Sleep!

By Nicolas Samuilov, notifight.com

WBC middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (51-2-2 28KOs) finally got his man. On June 7th at New York's Madison Square Garden, Martinez will defend his world title against former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) in the main event of an HBO Pay-Per-View card.

Martinez is confident he will prevent Cotto from achieving history. Cotto aims to become the first boxer from Puerto Rico to win world titles in four weight divisions.

The Argentine star is not worried about getting robbed with a bad decision, because he intends to close the show early.

"I have a lot of respect for Cotto. Beyond what we said on the tour, he's had a great career. But on June 7, I know I'm going to win. I'm not going to need judges, I'm wining by knockout," said the Buenos Aires input, who was accompanied by his coach, Pablo Sarmiento.

"He's looking to make history, more than he's already done. But that night he is not going to beat me. Cotto will be knocked out. He will end up going to sleep."

[QUOTE=FerFAL;14344268]The size difference alone is an issue. If we also take into account that Martinez does have speed and skill and hits pretty damn hard, Cotto is screwed unless Martinez injuries are worse than they seem.[/QUOTE] Or maybe Cotto is…

People really underestimate the importance of the size difference. Cotto couldn't handle the power of Pacquiao. Nor could he hurt Pacquiao. At 154, Cotto had no ability to hurt Austin Trout. Martinez is a much harder puncher than Pacquiao and…

Cotto's a tough guy. I don't know if it's the best idea to go for a KO. Sure, if it's there, go for it; but I think Sergio has enough in the tank to score a solid decision. As everyone…
