Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. gave his take on the potential fight between WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) and Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs), which is being targeted for June 7th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Cotto will attempt to win his fourth divisional title against a bigger man. In order to win, Jones feels Cotto must bring the fight to Martinez from the opening bell - similar to what Cotto did in his three round destruction of Delvin Rodriguez in October.

"For Martinez to win, he has to stay on the outside with jab and keep Cotto outside with that jab. Keep him fighting [from the outside]. He needs to use his feints with his hands down like he always does. He's the bigger man. He needs to make it a boxing match and not get close, because Cotto is more dangerous close. For Cotto, he has to do what Freddie [Roach] made him do in his last fight. He has to come out and be immediately aggressive -  immediately get to his body, immediately get to his head, stay on top of him and not let him rest because he is getting older," Jones said.

Better he try and batter him when Martinez has slowed down a bit in the latter rounds but battering Martinez shouldn't be anywhere in Cotto's thinking to begin with. He has the skills to try and tactically outpoint and outhustle Martinez. Keeping himself from getting damaged in the process should...

[QUOTE=mathed]The big differences will be that they won't be fighting in an outdoor arena in a rainstorm and hopefully Sergio won't break his hand in the second round and won't be fighting with a bum knee.[/QUOTE] Did he break in the 2nd round in both the Murray and Chavez Jr. fights?

[QUOTE=Sugar Adam Ali]For cotto to win he needs to follow the murray blueprint 1. keeps his guard high and tight and not allow serg to potshot.. Cotto should be able to do this, he was effective in blocking alot of floyd's lead right unlike victor ortiz 2. use the jab and double jab to forc...
