Sampson: Martinez vs. Cotto Will Sell Out in 72 Hours

By Elisinio Castillo

International adviser, Sampson Lewkowicz, who works with Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez, says a potential fight with former three division champion Miguel Cotto would sell out in 72 hours. The fight is being targeted for a date of June 7th, likely at New York's Madison Square Garden. The two sides are negotiating but nothing has been finalized as of yet.

"A fight like this would produce something very interesting. The venue would be sold out within 72 hours. It would be a total success. The two largest communities there (in New York) are from Puerto Rico and Argentina," Lewkowicz told Carlos Narvaez.

"Martinez has no problem facing Cotto. Logic says that a fight with Cotto would land in New York's Madison Square Garden, but we do not know anything and we have not sat down with Cotto's adviser, Gabriel Peñagarícano. The two who are negotiating are Todd DuBoef (Top Rank) and Lou DiBella, who is the promoter of Martinez."

Cotto/Martinez would be very entertaining. I like both but would want Cotto to get the nod for history's sake. The fight's winner would depend on Sergio's "legs" and ability to move. IMO.

Haters will hate the truth is that this is a very competitive fight of wish I got Cotto stopping Sergio around the 10th round. Dont be fooled, Miguel will come into the ring with the best preparation ever. Cotto can…

I didnt say Cotto was Manny Pacquiao but he does have good speed. And if he has no defense why is he a +9 on compubox +- as a junior middleweight. .. why was the most accurate puncher in the…
