Sergio Martinez Admits Pressure To Retire After Cotto
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.
