Roach Says Cotto Body Attack Will Create Martinez KO

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach is devising a cunning and effective strategy to, badger, outfox, and hound WBC middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) into a brush with defeat, on June 7th at Madison Square Garden. Roach is training former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) for the match.
 
“We have seen Martinez fights. I observed him closely when I was in Julio Cesar Chavez Jr’s corner, and he’s very fast. But...like all opponents he can be outboxed. If Miguel focuses on his body, Martinez will loose his speed and that's when we will knock him out,” Roach mused. 
 
Cotto has been training with Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California. This is not the first time they've successfully worked together in LA. Roach trained Cotto for his last fight against Delvin Rodriguez, which ended with a spectacular KO.

Roach is an aggressive trainer, sometimes too agressive, some of his fighters have lost on KO's to good counter fighter (Garcia, Marquez,) and although Cotto is more skilled than Martinez, Martinez is fast and a good counter.

What a surprise, Roach predicting a knock out for one of his fighters... Martinez is going to smash him to bits.
