Martinez: When I KO Cotto, I Can Focus on Golovkin!

By Elisinio Castillo

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) is already in the early stages of his training for a June 7th title defense against former three division champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) at New York's Madison Square Garden. After the fight with Cotto, Martinez will consider a unification fight with WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs). Martinez says a fight with Golovkin has to happen sooner than later, because the Kazakhstan fighter will be more dangerous in the future.

"When I beat Cotto by knockout, I can just concentrate on what might be a possible fight with Golovkin. He is the most difficult opponent. He's not the most difficult because of his technique, but for his physical strength. Golovkin is strong, physically fit and he can take a punch. This is the time to fight him, because in a few years he will have more experience and he will be more dangerous," Martinez told Mundo.

if serg sparks out Cotto, doesn't neccesarily mean he's still got it to beat GGG.

This Cotto Martinez fight is huge. I would buy this if it was PPV. It has that "Big Fight" feel.

[QUOTE=FightingWords;14229826]Gives Mayweather all he could handle but gets destroyed by a shot Martinez. Yep, makes sense..[/QUOTE] Why do you think Mayweather refused an 80/20 split to fight Martinez at 150? Why do you think Mayweather went on a 2-year holiday…

[QUOTE=Jubei;14229542]I mean i understand some of you are trolling, some are just desperate fanboys, but come on.. Cotto is a good fighter, he was good at WW but he was kinda bad at LMW, lost to Trout and only won…
