Roach: Miguel Cotto Will End Martinez in Four Rounds

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach has made a bold prediction for the June 7th showdown between former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) and WBC middleweight king Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs), which takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Martinez believes he will stop Cotto, who won his first world title at 140-poounds, in nine rounds. Roach feels it will end even quicker, with Cotto winning by way of a knockout in four rounds.

"They say the fight goes nine rounds, I think we win in four rounds. Miguel's ring  generalship alone will win this fight. We have two more days of sparring, then four rounds of work and that's it. We are ready to fight," Roach said.
