By Miguel Rivera

A major hurdle has been overcome. Sergio Martinez and Miguel Cotto have agreed on one of the biggest sticking points in finalizing their June 7th showdown - the name of the fight. Both sides were stating their case for first-name billing, but a deal was reached where the fight will be called "Cotto-Martinez" - according to Martinez's adviser Sampson Lewkowicz.

Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) will challenge Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) for the WBC's middleweight crown at New York's Madison Square Garden. HBO Pay-Per-View will carry the card. Lewkowicz says all of the terms have been agreed up on their end, and now the fight is sitting on Cotto's lap.

"That 20 percent that was missing [from finalizing the deal] was the name [of the fight] 'Cotto-Martinez,' and now that's it. To my knowledge there is nothing left [to negotiate]. For our part everything is set. The fight is in Cotto's hands now," he told Carlos Narvaez.
