WBC middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martínez (51-2-2, 28KOs) is looking closer at retirement, from the rough and tumble, wear and tear of boxing. Martinez defends his belt against Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs).

And that's precisely why his family is asking him to soon call it a day.

“My mother doesn’t want me to continue boxing and her decision and thoughts are very important for me. But...for the time being I’m fully focused on Miguel Cotto. Then I’ll make a decision,” he pledged.

“There are many chances that I will retire if I beat Cotto” he said during an interview.

This fight will take place on June 7th at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Martinez wants to retire from boxing with a great victory and leave a memorable boxing career embossed in the pages of history.

“I can’t regret anything in boxing. It's given me everything! if I retire I want to do it in a great way” he stressed.

Around the same time Martinez said this, he also said he has to fulfill his HBO contract, which has two fights left. It sounds like he is saying he plans to at least have two more fights in order to fulfill his contract.

I wonder if Martinez would really face GGG or actually move down to jr. middle to face Mayweather or even a catch weight fight with Manny. That would be good for him considering he is up there in age. It would be deserving for his good career. I actually don't think it was a duck if he didn't f...
