Martinez's Trainer: Sergio Not Finished, Will Punish Cotto
By Elisinio Castillo
Trainer Pablo Sarmiento has lashed out at experts who believe WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) is finished, as he nears a finalized deal to face former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) on June 7th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Martinez returns after suffering several injuries in his decision win over Martin Murray last April.
"To say that Martinez is finished is a big lie. Sergio is fine and his recovery has been good. He is fully recovered from the injuries. In June, you are going to see the same Sergio Martinez that you saw against [Julio Cesar] Chavez. He will be very fast, moving in and out and I believe he is going to hit Cotto a lot. He's going to give him a boxing lesson," Sarmiento said.

This fight is actually more interesting than some may recognize. Martinez has got speed and sneaky power. Cotto has a thudding jab that he times better than most. Timing trumps speed. Does Cotto have the power to take Martinez out?…Comment by thatdudespits on 02-03-2014
[QUOTE=H.B.Viper;14200640]Based on what?? That fact that Cotto was outboxed by Trout? Abused by MP? Made to look ultra slow by FMJ.... Now he's dealing with someone who has the guile of Mayweather, sneaky power of MP, and the length of…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (70)
