Roach: Team Martinez Started Talking Sh*t First
By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes
Freddie Roach, trainer of former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs), has no regrets about his recent prediction of a four round knockout win over WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) on Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden. HBO Pay-Per-View will televise.
Roach said Martinez and his team threw the first verbal stone with a prediction of a knockout win in nine rounds.
"The thing is, Martinez said he is going to knock him out in nine, so I said how can that happen when we're gonna knock him out in four. They're predicting rounds. If they can do it, then I can do it. They are talking sh*t too. They started it. They could have been respectful and just said it was going to be a good fight, but they weren't so I am not going to respect them back," Roach told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=El Angel;14622577]Well he [I]is[/I] right. Cotto has the classy, calm, polite one in interviews and media events. Cotto hasn't said one derogatory thing about Martinez, unless you consider him telling him the truth about being the B-side. :lol1: But it's…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (24)
