Molina Feels Cotto-Martinez Will Get Interesting Late

Text By Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina is looking forward to a potential fight between WBC middleweight king Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) and former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs). The two sides are negotiating for a June 7th date at New York's Madison Square Garden.

In several of his recent fights, Martinez dominated the early action, but then his body faded in the second half of the fight.

"That's actually a good fight. I think when he chose between Canelo and the Martinez fight, he picked Martinez because he's older and other guy will be around later on for him. I love Martinez. I think Martinez will be just boxing him, doing what he does best and getting to him. But in the last couple of fights I've seen Martinez struggle in the last couple of rounds. It's interesting, because I think Martinez is at his best in the first six or seven rounds but later on you never know," Molina said

Close, even fight. I see Cotto coming out with the win if Martinez tries to make it a brawl.

Smith blows, why should he have the belt?
