In order to reach an agreement, WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) admits that he was forced to bend and eventually ordered his team to accept all of the outstanding demands that were made by former three division king Miguel Cotto (38-3, 31KOs). Both fighters appear to be on board with a June 7th HBO Pay-Per-View fight at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

For weeks, the two sides were arguing over which boxer would receive first name billing, the order of the ring walks, and other event related details.

Martinez, eager to get Cotto in the ring, hit a breaking point and told his team to accept all of the demands.

"I told my team - 'say yes to everything, because if we don't he's going to drive us crazy.' If the sign says Martinez-Cotto, he doesn't want to fight. If during the presentation he doesn't come in second to the ring, he doesn't want to fight. If he does not get assigned to the blue corner, the same thing. When the bell rings, the two of us are going to have our gloves on. We are going to stop all of this nonsense and we are going to act like men in the ring," Martinez said.

[QUOTE=radioraheem]:lol1: But it's like I was telling you before. Out of all the demands being made, arguably the most important aside from money, would be random drug testing. And I bet that's the thing Cotto FOOLISHLY didn't demand. SMH @ Cotto.[/QUOTE] Forgot about that

FYI Martinez comes in at 159 for all his MW fights. He gave nothing to Cotto in the way of a weight advantage.

Good! Sounds Like Sergio Is Coming To Fight; That Gets Him KO'd!

Don't run, don't taunt. Show up and get retired by Cotto.

[QUOTE=JmH Reborn]Lol, Serg had been disrespecting Cotto in public for a couple years now and no one says anything. Cotto is now disrespecting him the G way, with his pockets and his pride. You all some young folks. Cotto never talks publicly, so this is his way of ***** slappung Serg. June ...
