Cotto doesn't duck fights, you can't say the same for most of the other top boxers in the sport. At 160, Cotto will be taking on a full-on middleweight in Martinez. Sergio normally comes in at 170lbs at the 30-day…

[QUOTE=Trudoe;14315135]Cotto could have gotten a tailor to size his suit for him. At least could have hemmed his damn pants.. Sergio looks much bigger than him. SMH this is going to be a massacre isn't it?? Game of Thrones Season…
